Airport WiFi: Boingo Offering Playoff Baseball for Four Bucks
If you've been frustrated enough by free airport WiFi that you've signed up for Boingo, you're in luck this playoff season. The nearly ubiquitous wireless provider has inked a deal with MLB.tv to offer up live, streaming webcasts of the Division Series. (Two contests in the American League remain this year; Boingo says the promo will continue into the two Championship Series.)
The "airport edition" of MLB.tv will offer the games at 23 different airports and without blackouts, a bonus that might come in handy if you're flying through Chicago tonight. Otherwise, the benefit to the service is simply that you don't have to elbow your way into a packed airport bar to catch the game.
You get four hours of access for $4, so hope that your hometown heroes can bring in a win without going to extra innings.
