Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO), which offers in-flight connectivity and wireless in-flight digital entertainment solutions, has partnered with Magnolia Pictures to offer their movies to airline passengers through Gogo Vision.
The content will include pre-theatrical and theatrical release titles, which is said to be a first for Gogo.
Gogo Vision allows passengers to rent movies and television shows and stream them to their own Wi-Fi enabled devices. Passengers can select from a library of more than 100 programs from major Hollywood studios.
Renting videos through Gogo Vision starts at $3.99 for a movie and $.99 for a TV show. For passengers who don’t finish their program onboard the aircraft, Gogo Vision has a resumption of play feature.
It allows passengers to finish watching their program on the ground for a 24-hour period on the same device on which they rented the movie or television show.
Starting in November, passengers on select aircraft will have access to THE LAST DAYS ON MARS, a sci-fi thriller starring Liev Schreiber ( Ray Donavan, X-Man Origins: Wolverine), before it’s in theaters.
They’ll also have access to BEST MAN DOWN, a smart and moving comedy starring Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard) and Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale Vs Evil).
Magnolia Pictures (www.magpictures.com) is the theatrical and home entertainment distribution arm of the Wagner/Cuban Companies, a vertically integrated group of media properties co-owned by Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban that also includes the Landmark Theatres chain and the high definition cable network AXS TV.
