All channels stream directly to customers’ laptops, phones or tablets free of charge.

“Our customers have told us they want a living room experience in the air – the ability to watch free entertainment, stream their favorite shows on-demand, charge their phones and stay connected from start to finish during their travels,” said Kurt Stache, Senior Vice President for Marketing, Loyalty & Sales. “Free live TV on our mainline domestic fleet is the latest step in making that a reality, and it complements the live TV we offer on all of our international widebody flights today. We are working quickly to update every part of our fleet to give our customers excellent entertainment and connectivity options no matter where they fly with us.”

The free live TV is now available on more than 100 aircraft equipped with Gogo 2Ku high-speed Wi-Fi including all 48 Airbus A320s, which are receiving in-seat power during 2019. It is also available on more than 60 A319s, which have power outlets in every row.

American will add free live TV to aircraft equipped with Viasat high-speed Wi-Fi, bringing both of these features to American’s long-term mainline narrowbody fleet during 2019. American has high-speed Wi-Fi on 240 aircraft including all A321T three-class transcontinental aircraft.
