Back in May of this year Amazon announced that it would start streaming its Amazon Prime instant video with JetBlue allowing Amazon Prime members to instantly access tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes via Fly-Fi.
Now from today the new service provides Amazon Prime members with the ability to enjoy unlimited, on-demand entertainment whilst participating in airline travel.
So If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber who’s flying in one of JetBlue’s Fly-Fi-ready planes you will be able to enjoy the ability to stream content at no extra cost. Michael Paull, Vice President of Digital Video at Amazon explained back in the May press release :
We want to provide the best digital video experience to our customers and we’re excited that, with JetBlue, we will raise the bar in airline entertainment. We’re thrilled that Fly-Fi technology will give Prime members and customers unlimited, on-demand access to the full catalog of titles from Amazon’s digital video library while they’re in the sky—without the need to rush to download one more episode or movie before taking off, we’re helping make airline travel more enjoyable.
Jamie Perry, Vice President, Brand and Product Development, JetBlue added :
Just like at home, customers will be able to access movies and TV shows from Amazon from 35,000 feet in the sky over our super-fast and free Fly-Fi. Amazon’s customer focus aligns perfectly with the experience we have created for our customers, including the best inflight entertainment, free unlimited snacks and beverages, lots of personal space with the most legroom in coach, and wide, comfortable seating. By teaming up with a category-leader like Amazon, we created a unique model where we can offer complimentary broadband internet access.
