Emirates is the first airline in the region to partner with HBO Max, WarnerMedia’s streaming destination for all of its hit movies and shows.

Those who prefer to plan their entertainment choices in advance, can browse all ice content on the Emirates’ website, and create a personalised playlist on the Emirates app, which can be synced with the ice system to immediately begin their movie or TV binge the moment they board the aircraft.
