‘My Three Sons’ star Grady succumbs to cancer

Don Grady, who was one of television’s most beloved big brothers as Robbie Douglas on the long-running 1960s hit “My Three Sons,” has died. He was 68.

His “My Three Sons” co-star Barry Livingston said Mr. Grady died Wednesday. He had been suffering from cancer and receiving hospice care at his home in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Born in San Diego as Don Louis Agrati, Mr. Grady had a brief stint singing and dancing on “The Mickey Mouse Club” starting at age 13.

But he was best known by far as one of Fred MacMurray’s “My Three Sons” on the series that ran on ABC and later CBS from 1960 to 1972.

Southwest Airlines to debut live TV service

Southwest Airlines plans to sell live television service on five planes and expand it to more aircraft by mid-July.

The airline said Thursday that it would offer seven sports and news channels — NBC Sports, MLB, NFL Network, CNBC, MSNBC, Fox News and Fox Business News — for passengers to watch on their own devices.

Southwest said it will test prices from $3 to $8 during a trial period. Passengers will need a Wi-Fi-enabled device such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop computer.

Live TV will be offered separately from wireless Internet access and customers won’t have to buy Internet access to watch TV.

Southwest said that if the service is successful, it will be added to all the airline’s Wi-Fi-enabled planes by the end of the year. The airline has about 550 Boeing 737 jets including about 250 with Wi-Fi. It plans to outfit 70 percent of its fleet by the end of 2013.
