United Airlines Rolls Out In-Flight Movie Service On iPhone (and iPad)

United Airlines has tonight updated its official iOS client to provide full support for its recently launched in-flight movie service, allowing those who fly with the airline to enjoy watching both movies and TV shows during their flight.

Entertainment, Personalised

United’s new personal device entertainment service will be available on select aircraft. Version 2.0.13 now adds the required software to browse and watch select movies (and TV shows) on your mobile device, when connected to the “United_Wi-Fi” network.


To see if your flight offers personal device entertainment, you can go to the “Inflight Amenities” tab on United’s Flight Status & Information page, or check the “Amenities” section of the Flight Status Details screen in the official United Airlines app within 24 hours of your flight’s departure.

“The service is [currently] limited to select flights as the airline works to install new hardware on its fleet,” reports Jordan Kahn, adding that the entertainment system “will also be available to laptop users through a browser plugin, but [is] initially limited to iPhone and iPad for mobile [use].”
