(CNN) When most airlines are adding fees, Southwest Airlines is giving passengers another free perk.

Starting this week, passengers with internet-ready devices can watch live television on Southwest flights for free.

The airline says Dish Network will also provide free access to up to 75 on-demand shows.

The airline used to charge passengers $5 a day for the service.

Southwest will add flights to Memphis in November.
