Never Bored on Board: A Multi-Screen Experience at 35,000 Ft


Looks like the hottest spot in town to binge-watch, meditate and catch up on news and podcasts is actually at 35,000 feet!

We are excited to announce a number of new partnerships on board that will allow us to offer an enhanced inflight entertainment (IFE) experience.

“Almost 20 years after disrupting the industry with free live TV at every seat, on every plane – we are once again re-defining inflight entertainment by listening closely to our customers’ feedback and offering even more options to make the most of their time onboard,” said Mariya Stoyanova, director of product development, JetBlue. “Whether you want to binge-watch, binge-listen, connect, disconnect or just discover something new – you can do it from our new HD seatback screens, your own devices, or more likely, all of the above.”

We have finally brought the comforts of your living room browsing and the “multi-screen experience” to 35,000 feet with the introduction of SHOWTIME, Spotify, INSCAPE, and PressReader on board. You can now connect (and disconnect) on board using multiple devices, including the HD seatback entertainment (a), at the same time.

Binge-worthy Content On Board

SHOWTIME: Are you still watching? Because you should be! You can now binge-watch select full seasons of SHOWTIME’s hit series on our HD seatback screens. Even better, once you land you can pick up right where you left off with a 30-day free trial. JetBlue customers connected to Fly-Fi (b) can access a special 30-day free trial offer to the entire SHOWTIME library.

Spotify: JetBlue’s latest collaboration with Spotify, our exclusive podcast partner, will bring podcasts from Anchor, Gimlet, Parcast and Spotify Studios to seatback screens. Titles include Business of HYPE, Conspiracy Theories, Dope Labs, Heavyweight, The Horror of Dolores Roach, and Superwomen with Rebecca Minkoff.

INSCAPE: Find your zen in the clouds. We’ve brought meditation on board with our new NYC-based partner, INSCAPE. In between episodes, let us help you to relax in the air with 20 curated inflight meditation sessions, available on seatback screens. Meditations range from “Flying without Fear” and “Jet Lag Relief,” to “Inflight Mindfulness,” as well as breathing exercises and sleepscapes.

PressReader: Stay in the know with PressReader on board. While inflight, you can now enjoy the largest all-you-can-read platform of newspapers and magazines, with unlimited access to thousands of local and national news publications and magazines.
