Spotlight on Delta Studio
Customers flying on Delta receive more free entertainment than any other carrier. This is the result of the introduction of the Delta Studio. Since its introduction, Delta Studio offers free entertainment from every seat on more than 1,000 aircraft worldwide.
Entertainment is offered through seatback systems or in-flight streaming should customers prefer to experience the entertainment directly on their own smartphones, tablets and laptops.
This is the most far-reaching effort by an airline to provide hit movies, popular television shows, music and video games for free. All Delta customers, regardless of travel class (on flights longer than one and a half hours) will have access to a selection of free entertainment options at their seat or on their personal device.
Domestic economy customers will also have access to free content which includes all of Delta's live satellite TV channels, music selections and game options as well as movies straight from the big screen such as 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' or 'Frozen' on seatback systems as well as streaming content through in-flight Wi-Fi.
Additional premium content will be available for purchase in economy including the latest movie titles as well as on-demand TV shows for both international and domestic flights.
Seatback In-flight Entertainment
Delta offers 18 channels of live satellite TV on select aircraft and up to 250 movies, hundreds of TV shows, 2,300 songs and a selection of games on aircraft with seatback entertainment systems. Delta is the only U.S. carrier to offer personal, on-demand entertainment at every seat on all long haul international flights.
Delta has 140 domestic aircraft with seatback entertainment systems installed and recently announced that it will be updating more of its domestic narrow body aircraft through 2016.
In-flight streaming through on-board Wi-Fi
Customers traveling on any domestic Delta or Delta Connection two-cabin aircraft equipped with Wi-Fi will be able to stream free movies and TV options directly to their mobile devices while in flight by using Gogo's video player app. The Fly Delta app will include an integrated player for iOS devices. Customers who have downloaded the app before their flight can easily access streamed content from Delta aircraft for playback while in flight.
Artist Spotlight and Billboard Partnership
Delta also launched its new music discovery platform for popular and emerging artists called Delta Artist Spotlight. The monthly program kicked off with multi-award winning artist Sam Smith and his debut album, 'In The Lonely Hour' by introducing his music to millions of passengers through boarding music as well as offering custom content selections for aircraft equipped with seatback entertainment systems. Previous months featured Scottish electronic band Chvrches and Canadian-born songstress Kiezsa.
Delta launched an industry-first partnership with Billboard to provide new ergonomically designed headphones on flights of more than 250 miles that feature seatback and overhead entertainment. As one of the world's most influential music brands, Billboard brings a new level of expertise to the redesigned headphones resulting in better sound quality and improved comfort. The headphones are complimentary for all customers traveling on all international flights as well as flights between New York and Los Angeles, San Francisco or Seattle. Customers seated in domestic economy or Economy Comfort can purchase the headphones for $2.
