BA launches pet-only TV channel for passengers

British Airways is to introduce an in-flight entertainment channel featuring cute cats and dogs.

The Paws & Relax channel, featuring cartoons as well as cats and dogs playing, is being launched on long-haul flights next month.

It is the latest unique launch from BA in recent months, after a new genre of "Slow TV", showing an unedited seven-hour Norwegian train journey, was introduced in July.
