American Airlines offering Apple TV+ in-flight for free

AA inflight entertainment

American Airlines is now offering Apple TV+ as part of the in-flight entertainment for free. The partnership between American Airlines and Apple will now give customers more options for passing the time while airborne.

According to The Points Guy, the new streaming option is available to every flyer with a Wi-Fi capable device on flights that feature internet access. You don’t need to pay for internet in order to stream either — you’ll just need the AA app on your phone or tablet or visit on your laptop.

American will rotate the selection of movies and TV shows each month, but it currently offering Apple’s flagship originals like The Morning Show and Defending Jacob.

Apple previously partnered with American Airlines to offer free streaming of Apple Music on domestic flights, however although the WiFi access was free, the user still needed to have an Apple Music subscription.

This time, TV+ shows will be included in the onboard entertainment systems for anyone to watch without the need for a subscription or an account.

However, complete seasons will not necessarily be available. American is currently screening only the first two episodes of The Morning Show on the planes, for instance.
