Helix Wireless and ReachTV Bring Live Football Games to New York and New Jersey Airports


October 01, 2021


Helix Wireless, Inc. is happy to announce their agreement with ReachTV to deploy SmartSIM technology for connecting airport TVs, and thanks to their multi-year NFL partnership, bring live football games to airport audiences. The Helix Wireless total solution allows for fast, reliable, seamless connectivity so that travelers at the Newark, JFK and La Guardia airport don’t miss their favorite national football team in action while waiting to board their planes. Through this agreement ReachTV can now count on robust data connectivity for the airport TVs.

On Thursday, September 16th, New York and New Jersey airport travelers got to watch the Giants @ Washington game live on concourse and lounge screens, instead of the typical news or weather that was the norm. Travelers will be able to enjoy live Thursday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, Monday Night Football, and the complete slate of national games on Sunday. It will also include the Playoffs and Super Bowl.

“Talk about lightning-fast implementation! We made a call on Thursday, tested the Helix Wireless SmartSIM on Monday, and were broadcasting the football game within the week. We are pleased with Helix’s level of support, as well as their ability to expedite this deployment.” said Lynnwood Bibbens, ReachTV Founder and CEO.

“We have strived to be a partner and not just another data provider. Being a part of designing and implementing this solution for ReachTV was a great honor for us” said Francis Gallic, Helix Wireless, Inc. COO
