Alaska Airlines earns high marks for entertainment

    Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) A new survey ranked the airline number one when it comes to in-flight entertainment.

    CableTV.com ranked the entertainment value of the country's 10 top airlines.  The ranking was based on the selection of films, television shows, accessibility, pricing and personal device access.

    Another factor was which airlines offer WiFI in the air and whether they charge extra for these services.

    Alaska Airlines was praised for having a little more of everything in its onboard entertainment package.  The airline has touted its Alaska Beyond Entertainment program which lets passengers stream movies and TV shows to their smartphone, tablet or laptop.  They currently offer nearly 200 movies, and many games and music offerings.
