Hurrah! Airline to start offering free in-flight Netflix and Spotify

This Airline Will Offer In Flight Netflix and Spotify to Passengers

Foxtel will offer three days free streaming, while Netflix and Spotify will offer 30 days free trail as long as passengers subscribe to their offerings.

In addition to assisting with reducing turbulence and improving aircraft maintenance, the upgrade will also provide a boost to entertainment in the form of Foxtel, Netflix and Spotify access.

With speeds up to 10 times faster than conventional inflight Wi-Fi, Qantas will offer customers video and audio streaming when the service is switched on its first domestic aircraft in late February this year.

Netflix and Spotify will require customers to sign up to a subscription to enjoy the services, though Netflix will offer new customers access to their services as part of a free 30-day trial (which they now offer all non-subscribers).

Travellers flying on Qantas domestic flights will soon be able to stream movies, TV shows and music from Foxtel, Netflix and Spotify's media libraries for free using the airline's in-flight wifi.

The in-flight wi-fi will be available on the airline's domestic routes later this month before it is expanded across the rest of the domestic fleet this summer.

'The Lego Batman Movie' A Surprisingly Good Film
When it comes to age appropriateness, I'd say use "The LEGO Movie" as a measuring stick. But this is a kids' movie, so it escapes any " Dark Knight " bleakness.

Spotify will offer a 30 day free trial of its Premium music service, which has no ads, shuffle play and unlimited skips.

However, passengers must bring their own device in order to connect to the inflight Wi-Fi, therefore gaining access to the new features. Yep, that means binge-watching your favourite TV shows and listening to a library of millions of songs can now be done at around 40,000 feet.

British Airways will introduce wi-fi on its short-haul flights from this summer.

The Australian carrier is now speaking to suppliers regarding the extension of its wifi services to global and regional fleets.

Existing subscribers will be able to log in to their accounts and access the services during flights as they would normally.
