A Guide to Enjoying In-flight Entertainment on Delta Air Lines
Delta Air Lines' in-flight entertainment is branded as Delta Studio content. The selection of movies, video games, music, and television shows varies by flight and changes often, and it’s possible to stream on both seat-back screens (where available) as well as on Windows 10-compatible laptops, mobile phones, and tablet devices.
How Do You Access Delta's In-flight Entertainment?
To stream Delta Studio content on a personal device, passengers need the GoGo Entertainment App, which is available for download from Apple's App Store, the Google Play Store, and the Delta Wi-Fi Portal — the latter of which is only available once in flight.
Because in-flight Wi-Fi is notoriously slow, it’s definitely preferable to download the app before you board.
Travelers may also enjoy Delta Studio entertainment when flying on aircraft equipped with seat-back screens. A majority of Delta airplanes currently have traditional entertainment systems, though not all.
What Types of Entertainment are Available on Delta Studio?
Delta Studio lets travelers choose from up to 300 movies, as well as options from HBO, Showtime, SpyKids TV, and 18 channels of live satellite television. There are also podcasts, TED Talks, trivia, games, and more than 2,500 songs available.
(When it comes to music, Delta Studio offers 16 different 45-minute mixes from varying genres, ranging from a “chill” electronica soundtrack, to a channel with only music en español.)
When to Expect a Seat-back Screen
At this time, most travelers don't need to worry about toting a personal device to watch in-flight entertainment. Seat-back screens are available on almost all long-haul international flights, as well as on many domestic aircraft. You can expect an entertainment if you're flying on an Airbus A319 (31J, 3HF); an A320 (32M, 3MR); an A321; an A330-200 or A330-300.
Travelers with a seat on a Boeing 737-700, 800 (73H), 900ER; 747-400; 757-200 (75D, 75S, 75H, 75G) or 757-300; 767-300, 300ER, or 400ER; 777-200ER or 200LR can also look forward to a seat-back entertainment screen.
How to Stream from a Personal Device
To access Delta Studio from a personal device in-flight, first connect your laptop, tablet, or smartphone to Delta's Gogo Inflight network. Launch your internet browser, and type in the URL “airborne.gogoinflight.com.” You’ll be able to access this website regardless of whether or not you’ve purchased Wi-Fi.
Click on the Delta Studio banner, which should appear on the homepage. From there, you’ll be able to select video, music, games, as well as other content, to stream on your device.
