Delta starts a free stream of video

August 1, 2014

Delta Air Lines has rolled out free video programming that customers can stream to their electronic devices, a move Delta says gives it "more free entertainment than any other carrier."

The option was scheduled to become available on its domestic mainline aircraft and two-cabin regional jets Friday.

The nation's No. 3 carrier already has seat-back entertainment on many of its aircraft, but the streaming option will give customers access to on-demand offerings even on planes without individual screens. With the streaming option, Delta says all passengers have access to "a selection of free entertainment options" on flights of 90 minutes or more.

Delta's move comes as several U.S. airlines have been trying to woo customers with upgrades to their in-flight entertainment.
