Fun news for folks flying with Delta! Soon they’ll be the only US airline to offer ALL of their in-flight entertainment for free. This includes new movie releases and premium channels, like HBO & Showtime!
You’ll even be able to stream entertainment right to your laptop, tablet, or phone, for free too!
Free Premium In-Flight Entertainment on Most Delta Flights
Delta announced that by July 1, 2016, they’ll stop charging for new movie releases and premium channels on almost all of their flights!
Now, you’ll be able to watch live TV and catch news and sports games on some of Delta’s planes!
Not only that, you’ll be able to stream your entertainment for free, directly to your laptops, mobile devices and tablets.
And of course, get free access to premium movies and TV shows on planes that are already equipped with seat-back screens!
Currently, Delta is the only US airline to offer on-demand entertainment to everyone on their long-haul international flights. And they also have the world’s largest Wi-Fi equipped fleet. So they’re definitely trying to impress folks!
Singing the JetBlues
Maybe Delta is trying to catch up to JetBlue’s popular in-flight entertainment system. They give folks free satellite TV and streaming radio on all their flights.
It’s definitely one of the reasons JetBlue consistently ranks as the #1 low-cost airline in the US for customer satisfaction!

And now you’ll also get a better entertainment selection, whether you fly in the big fancy seats or in coach!

And if you make a Delta purchase in the first 3 months of account opening, you’ll earn a $100 statement credit.
I’m excited that Delta is helping folks pass the time while flying with more free entertainment!
