Delta to Offer All In-Flight Entertainment for Free
Delta Studio, the airline’s suite of onboard entertainment, will be free for all customers on two-class aircraft by July 1. This includes nearly 90 percent of Delta’s fleet.
Delta operates a versatile in-flight entertainment-equipped fleet, with more than 1,000 aircraft offering Delta Studio via streaming through laptops, mobile devices and tablets, in addition to nearly 400 aircraft equipped with seat-back entertainment systems.
Delta Studio offers up to 300 movies, 750 TV shows, 100 foreign film titles, 2,400 songs, 18 channels of live satellite TV on select aircraft and a selection of games on aircraft with seat-back entertainment systems.

According to Delta, customers can enjoy a range of popular movies like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; The Jungle Book; and Hail, Caesar!; as well as premium TV options like Showtime’s Billions and HBO’s Vinyl. Live TV is available on more than 240 aircraft, says the company.
“The only thing better than operating the world’s largest in-flight entertainment-equipped fleet is providing it free to all our guests,” said Tim Mapes, Delta’s chief marketing officer. “Our commitment is to provide Delta customers with the industry’s best on-board services – period.”
Delta says it has made significant investments in its on-board product and the customer experience, including modernizing the interiors of hundreds of aircraft with high capacity overhead bins, seatback entertainment systems, new lavatories, ambient LED lighting, new seats with power outlets, and other upgrades. Entertainment options will vary by aircraft type and route.
