Southwest Airlines passengers can now watch live TV on their mobile devices for free while flying on the carrier’s Wi-Fi-enabled planes. The airline previously charged $5 for the service.

It’s part of the “TV Flies Free” promotion in which Dish Network will offer Southwest (NYSE: LUV) customers 14 live channels on 425 Wi-Fi-equipped planes, which make up about 75% of Southwest’s fleet, USA Today reports. The programming will be streamable on iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches and most other internet-ready mobile devices.

JetBlue and Virgin Airways have offered free live TV for years, but only on seat-back screens.
