Can’t get enough of the Internet wherever you go, even when you are flying high up in the sky? Well, you might want to switch airlines for good if you aren’t a regular customer of American Airlines, simply because the airline has expanded its in-flight Wi-Fi program to the whole Boeing 767 fleet – where they will sport Gogo Wi-Fi in addition to a spanking new Entertainment On Demand system that will stream not only feature length movies, but TV shows as well, directly to your notebook or tablet.
Needless to say, a service like this would mean your seat should come with a power outlet so that you won’t have that sinking feeling of a drained gadget during the climax of a movie. The on-demand content that is available is touted to surpass 100 movies and TV shows – where they are all streamed from remote servers, so that you can view your movie even after the flight lands. You have 24 hours to complete your movie, while a TV show takes 72 hours. Don’t you see the irony in this? TV shows are shorter, and they have a longer “expiry date”, while far lengthier movies are given a mere 24 hour window.
You will have to fork out $0.99 for each TV show, while $3.99 is the asking price for each movie. [Press Release]
