Continental Airlines has entered into an agreement with LiveTV to provide
inflight Wi-Fi services, including e-mail and instant messaging, and 36 channels of satellite-
based DIRECTV® television programming over the continental US beginning in Jan. 2009.

Passengers can access the Wi-Fi services free of charge using their Wi-Fi-enabled smart-phones, BlackBerries, and laptop computers to connect to Yahoo!® Mail and Messenger and BlackBerry® e-mail and Messenger services.
The services are subject to LiveTV being able to offer the service, which is still in the testing phase, Continental said.
