Currently, Delta has has 700+ aircraft equipped with inflight entertainment screens and now you’ll have more viewing options. As of August 1st, Delta added Hulu original content to its selection of movies, TV shows and music.

Delta brought on the following:

  • The Handmaid’s Tale – Season 1 Episodes 1-3
  • The Mindy Project – Season 4 Episodes 1-6
  • Marvel’s Runaways – Season 1 Episodes 1-3
  • Castle Rock – Season 1 Episodes 1-3
  • Casual – Season 1 Episodes 1-4
  • Light As A Feather – Season 1 Episodes 1-3
  • The Act – Season 1 Episodes 1-3
  • Shrill – Season 1 Episodes 1-3
  • Batman and Bill – Film
  • Fyre Fraud – Film
  • Ask Dr. Ruth – Film
  • Minding the Gap – Film
  • Into the Dark: New Year, New You – Film

It’s interesting to see Delta invest in inflight entertainment while also making the move toward free inflight Wi-Fi. Once everyone has access to Wi-Fi, seat-back entertainment will be largely obsolete.

If you don’t want to wait for free Wi-Fi there are several cards that offer a limited number of complimentary GoGo inflight Wi-Fi passes as a benefit including The Business Platinum Card® from American Express and U.S. Bank Altitude™ Reserve Visa Infinite® Card. Unfortunately, none of the increased Delta credit card offers have any sort of Wi-Fi perk or discount and in my experience purchasing Wi-Fi passes (even through the Delta website before boarding) doesn’t trigger the airline incidental credit for cards like The Platinum Card® from American Express (enrollment required).

The information for the U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite Card has been collected independently by Million Mile Secrets. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.
