If streaming uptake is minimal, then why not cut the licensing costs even if it just saves enough to keep one person employed?
On DL Connection flights (like the OP), streaming is the only option. For ATL-TYS, it's not a big deal to not have IFE. But ATL-YUL in a CRJ is a long flight to have no IFE. I never use the streaming on mainline flights, but on those longer Connection flights, I def want to be able to stream. And it IS a differentiator from AA/UA/WN etc.
