American to Expand Streaming Service on Domestic Aircraft
American Airlines announced that it is launching its video streaming service on over 200 additional planes in its domestic fleet. The carrier will add streaming to its fleet of Airbus A319s, A320s, and A321s this month, as well as some of its international widebody aircraft.
The airline’s American Spotlight entertainment service offers hundreds of hours of movies and TV shows. To access the streaming service, passengers can open their browser, look for Entertainment option, and accept Gogo’s invitation to install the Gogo Video Player plug-in.
The content is stored on a server on board the aircraft, which allows for high-quality video with little if any latency.
In celebration of the announcement, American is offering six movies for free through June 30. Passengers can view “Big Hero 6,” “Captain America,” “Frozen,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Into the Woods,” and “Maleficent” on select flights.
