Your next Delta flight just got a whole lot more enjoyable.
At a time when it seems like U.S. airlines are charging ancillary fees for everything from checked bags to potato chips, Delta Air Lines shocked travelers today by announcing that it will stop charging for in-flight entertainment. Free movies, music, and TV shows will be provided on nearly 90 percent of Delta’s fleet by July 1.
Delta’s entertainment service, called Delta Studio, can be accessed on seat-back screens and streamed to laptops, smartphones, and tablets. Be sure to download the GoGo Entertainment App prior to your flight as downloading and installing apps can be frustrating over in-flight Wi-Fi.
The entertainment lineup varies by aircraft and route, but Delta says the free service offers a big variety of programming up to:
- 300 movies, including current hits like Batman v Superman and The Jungle Book
- 750 TV shows, including HBO and Showtime programs
- 100 foreign films
- 2,400 songs
- 18 channels of live satellite TV on select aircraft
- Variety of games
