    United Airlines is one of the biggest airline companies in the United States and the whole world and many of its customers own iOS devices. To make sure that it keeps them pleased, the company has issued recently an important update to its iOS app, including the in-flight entertainment service that makes use of the onboard Wi-Fi to stream movies and TV shows to users for free.

    The app itself is quite new, being first announced in March, but since then it’s been constantly updated with new features and options. Now, version 2.0.13 lets users stream more than 150 movies and nearly 200 TV shows for free while in flight. At the moment, the new feature is limited to iOS devices and laptops, but Android support should make its way sometime in the near future.

    So, if you plan on flying with United Airlines in the near future or if you’re a loyal customers, then you can download the app for free from the iOS App Store to make use of the new features. Also, before boarding, fliers can check the Inflight Amenities tab on United.com’s Flight Status & Information webpage to confirm that their flight offers the new personal device entertainment system.

      It won't cost anything. It's just a local WiFi network with no Internet capability. What will cost quite a bit will be Internet access from the plane.

      Offering free inboard entertainment through your own device is a shrewd business move by United Airlines. With this new system in place they don't have to spent lots of money installing video screens in all the seat backs, they just get the customer to bring his own device.

      Yes, that's what I meant, the "juice" to run the entertainment apps and such. I can disconnect for a couple of hours I won't pay those high internet access fees.
