Budget airline JetBlue Airways said Tuesday that its passengers will have
access to live programming this month from the Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake
City.

An agreement between NBC and DirecTV Inc. will allow the airlines to deliver
the Olympics coverage from all NBC properties -- the broadcast network, as well
as CNBC and MSNBC -- free-of-charge to individual JetBlue passengers at their
seats.

Through its arrangement with DirecTV Airborne, a division of DirecTV, JetBlue
delivers up to 24 channels of direct-broadcast satellite
programming.
