Air Canada: Live TV onboard certain flights

To the point As of November 21, 2022, it is now possible to watch live news and sports through the live TV service offered onboard certain Air Canada flights.

This initiative is part of Air Canada’s recent customer experience enhancements and is limited to domestic routes at this time.

Forty Air Canada aircraft, Boeing 777s and 787s as well as Airbus A330s and A220s, are equipped with this live TV service. By the second quarter of 2023, 50% of domestic flights operated by mainline aircraft will offer this service.

Air Canada will offer live streaming from the following six channels

  • TSN
  • TSN2
  • RDS
  • CTV News
  • LCN
  • BNN Bloomberg

This new entertainment offer will allow sports fans to not miss anything during their trip, especially for sports such as soccer, field hockey, soccer, golf and basketball. Those who follow national, international and business news will also be able to enjoy it, in English as well as in French.


“We are thrilled to launch Live TV as the newest addition to our unparalleled onboard entertainment. Customers will be able to enjoy content from great Canadian channels in both English and French. Sports fans flying with us can enjoy the exhilaration of watching regular season, playoff and championship games in real time, while business news junkies will appreciate remaining connected to market trends and current events, right from their seat. As we continue elevating the customer experience, we look forward to expanding Live TV to more flights, and bring even more leading content and features in 2023,” said John Moody, Senior Director – Product Design, at Air Canada.
