Delta Airlines Adds Free Movie Streaming to Mobile App

Delta Airlines today updated its Fly Delta iOS app with new in-flight entertainment options. "Delta Studio" allows passengers to stream a variety of movies and television shows on all domestic flights. There are "up to 300 movies available at your fingertips," according to the Delta website. The selection depends upon your "route and aircraft type," but the upcoming August lineup includes movies like Spider-Man 2, Veronica Mars and Draft Day. The page also states that Delta Studio content is "free for international, First Class and Economy Comfort™ passengers."

The best part about Delta's new service is all the content is stored on the aircraft so service should not be slow. Just make sure you download the app before your board the plane to ensure there are no delays. The Fly Delta app also allows customers to book flights, reserve preferred seating, map air time and access all of Delta's services like checking bags.

The app is free to download on the Apple App Store. It supports all devices running iOS 6 or later. Here's the complete list of available features for iOS devices:
