Starting July 1, Netflix will be streaming services on Delta and American Airlines, as if we needed another reason to binge watch shows and be anti-social.
According to a Delta Airlines’ press release, the airline will show free in-flight entertainment on 90 percent of their planes. Entertainment will include “300 movies, 750 TV shows, 100 foreign films, 2,400 songs, 18 channels of live satellite TV and a selection of games.”
The press release also noted: “Delta Studio [will] consistently provide the best depth and breadth of content in the skies, from its lineup of all of the best picture nominees during awards season, to having nearly all of the top-grossing recent box office hits. Customers can enjoy a range of popular movies like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; The Jungle Book; and Hail, Caesar!; as well as premium TV options like Showtime’s Billions and HBO’s Vinyl. Live TV is available on more than 240 aircraft.”
On top of this news, American Airlines will also be partnering with ViaSat to bring satellite WiFi at a speed of 12 Mbps per seat on 100 planes for faster internet for the streaming service. American Airlines plans to roll out this feature in September 2017, House Beautiful reports.
