Only four channels, but it is a start.
 
It's worked for 15 years on JetBlue.  So well, in fact, that they bought LiveTV (DirecTV provider) in 2002.  But this only works over the continental US.  UA (pmCO) is also using this  - and paying JetBlue for it.

What provider is AA using to deliver these channels?
