The Boston Globe reports that the MBTA will soon install a closed-circuit television network with both newscasts and advertising in the subway, in an attempt to increase revenue without raising fees (currently at $1.25). I am just happy that it is going to be non-intrusive:

Details of how the television network would work have not been finalized, though Mulhern promises the system will be silent, with closed captioning and audio available on FM radio or FM-ready cellphones.

I am more interested in the possibility of wireless access, although I am concerned about pricing.
