We're listening about what you want to watch. After customers told us that they'd like access to first seasons of TV shows, we updated our programming to include the complete first season of at least one hit TV show everywhere that we offer seatback on-demand or personal device entertainment. The available first seasons will rotate regularly, so you’ll be able to switch up your in-flight binge-watching.
