JetBlue passengers will soon have access to a significantly large library of content to stream while they’re up in the air. It has been announced today that content from Amazon Prime Video will be accessible to JetBlue passengers on some flights, passengers need to be Prime members in order to stream content.
Those who don’t subscribe to the $99 per year Prime program which also gives them access to Prime Video, they’ll be able to access Prime Music and the Kindle store on JetBlue flights to rent or purchase movies and books.
On the other hand Prime customers will have full access to the entire Amazon Prime Video library and they’ll be able to stream whatever they like using their own device. Amazon’s entertainment library will also be accessible through JetBlue’s Fly-Fi Hub.
The music and video streaming service will be powered on JetBlue’s A321 and A320 aircraft by Exede Internet. Currently JetBlue’s Fly-Fi service charges passengers if they want to stream video, under this partnership with Amazon streaming capabilities will be added to the free tier of this in-flight Wi-Fi service.
JetBlue primarily operates flights in the United States and parts of Latin America. Passengers’ in-flight entertainment options include 36 DirecTV channels for free and a movie library that allows rentals for $5 on longer flights.
