United Airlines is one of the biggest American airlines, with an estimated revenue of $38.3 billion for the past year. Many of its passengers are iOS device owners and for them, starting in this April, the company will roll out a new personal device entertainment system for Appleâ€™s iPhone and iPad devices running iOS 7. Thus, United Airline customers will have at their disposal more than 150 movies and nearly 200 TV shows free of charge. Patently Apple publication was the first one to break the story:
All that flyers will have to do will be to download the latest version of the United Airlines app and make sure that their devices are fully charged. The app will the presumably stream content over Unitedâ€™s own Wi-Fi connection. Once launched, the entertainment system will be limited to iPhones and iPad, as support for Android devices will arrive later on.
You will be able to start, stop, rewind, pause and switch your movie or TV show anytime. The new service is sponsored by the MileagePlus Explorer Card. The United Airlines can help you perform other things, such as Check-in, Flight booking and status, Reservation management and other travel tools.
