Apple TV+ appears on in-flight entertainment systems
Apple has reached an arrangement with American Airlines under which the airline has begun providing Apple TV+ streaming entertainment in-flight to passengers.
Apple has a long-standing partnership with American, which began to offer Apple Music streaming in 2019. The move to furnish travellers with access to the company’s homemade content will likely help juice interest in its service, given that many of its shows are really rather good. The idea is that flights offering Wi-Fi services let passengers access the media for free.
Sadly, it’s not a complete access deal. The following are being made available:
- The Morning Show
- Defending Jacob
- For All Mankind
- Home Before Dark
- Little America
- Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet
- Oprah’s Book Club
- Snoopy in Space
My favorite three being Defending Jacob, Dickinson and Mythic Quest. Passengers can also stream movies and TV shows, including fro HBO, on AA flights.
It’s of little surprise that this news first appeared at The Points Guy, which (incidentally) should be bookmarked by anyone seeking out good flight deals post-pandemic. If you’re brave enough to actually fly, that is. The site is the go-to destination for this kind of information.
