November 25, 2015 – JetBlue and Amazon have announced that unlimited streaming entertainment on Amazon Video is now available on more than 150 JetBlue aircraft equipped with free Fly-Fi Ka-band Internet.
Amazon Prime members can sign-in or sign-up to instantly access tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes, at no additional cost to their membership. In addition, all JetBlue customers can rent or purchase titles in the Amazon Video store, including new release movies and day-after TV programming.
“Offering streaming movies and shows from Amazon Video over free Fly-Fi changes the game in in-flight entertainment, much like our seatback televisions did 15 years ago,” said Jamie Perry, vice president of brand and product development at JetBlue. “And we’re not stopping at video; our relationship with Amazon offers opportunities to delight our customers in ways that have never been done before.”
As part of the multiyear year agreement, Amazon on JetBlue has been integrated into The Hub, JetBlue’s entertainment portal that customers access on their personal devices. Amazon on JetBlue offers a streaming experience for customers, with a choice of thousands of titles.
Customers will also be able to watch Amazon Originals such as the just-launched series The Man in the High Castle as well as the second season of Transparent. which airs on December 11, among others, on JetBlue’s seatback televisions.
JetBlue is aiming to complete installation of Fly-Fi in 2016, advancing its effort to become the only US carrier to offer free high-speed wi-fi Internet on every aircraft. JetBlue currently has Fly-Fi installed on its entire fleet of Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, and has begun installation on its fleet of Embraer 190s.
