Gulf Air launches live video streaming service

Gulf Air launches live video streaming service

National carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain Gulf Air has announced the launch of its first live video streaming service, which offers passengers full broadband connectivity.

As part of the plans, which were unveiled yesterday (October 12th), travellers will be able to access internet, mobile phone services and a global, live television service.

The Panasonic Avionics Global Communications Suite was installed into an A330-200 aircraft and is set to be rolled out into Gulf Air's entire fleet progressively.

Sky Hub, which features high-speed internet, fast mobile data speeds, voice over internet protocol and video streaming capabilities, was initially introduced to the media and senior Bahrain civil aviation officials.

Samer Majali, the airline's chief executive, said: "It is another important milestone in our customer service journey as we unveil our latest in-flight entertainment system, 'Sky Hub' on our fleet."

This news comes after Manchester City agreed a new content deal with streaming portal YouTube to give the club greater controls over the media developed for its user channel.
