Delta has announced new Delta Studio collections and premium content for its in-flight entertainment library.
“A fresh selection of entertainment means customers can catch the latest box-office hits, rediscover an old favourite or stream their favourite tunes when they fly on Delta this holiday season,” said Katie Stuart, Product Manager, Delta Studio.
In recent years, Delta has continued to invest in its in-flight entertainment experience. Only the airline’s Boeing 717 fleet are not equipped with seatback screens, meaning new content introduced this month is available on nearly all routes.
Passengers travelling in November and December will have access to over 100 films with 56 new releases, and more than 500 TV episodes from top Hollywood studios on Delta. Highly anticipated new releases featured include Stillwater, Free Guy and No Sudden Move.
For the first time, HBO Max selections will be available exclusively to Delta passengers. These include a new feature collection with HBO Max favourites Friends: The Reunion, Love Life, Raised by Wolves and more.
New content is hand-selected by teams at Delta after reviewing historical performance data to better understand the content customers want more of. Content and collections on Delta Studio are refreshed monthly.
In addition, Delta also has partnered with interactive fitness platform Peloton to offer a new Classes in the Clouds collection of wellbeing-focused content exclusively for Delta customers. This is the first time that Peloton content will be offered on a non-Peloton platform and is the latest step the company is taking to create content that is accessible to help its members stay active.
The 5-to-20-minute stretching and meditation classes are taught by Peloton Yoga and Meditation Instructors Anna Greenberg, Chelsea Jackson Roberts and Ross Rayburn, as well as Tread and Strength Instructors Matty Maggiacomo and Adrian Williams.
More than 200 Delta aircraft are now equipped with fast-streaming Viasat Wi-Fi, with the airline on track to complete more than 300 installations by year end. Customers on these aircraft can stream and browse their favourite sites at fast speeds for a simple, flat rate of US$5 per device no matter the length of the flight. Free messaging is also available, ensuring customers can stay connected to friends and family on the ground. Delta plans to equip nearly all its domestic mainline fleet with enhanced connectivity by the end of 2022.
