Many Delta Air Lines passengers will soon be treated to free movies, TV shows and music.

Delta recently announced that its on-board entertainment suite, called Delta Studio, will be free for all domestic and international passengers on two-class airplanes by July 1.

Those planes account for nearly 90 percent of Delta’s fleet.

While entertainment options will vary by plane type and route, Delta Studio offers passengers access to as many as:

  • 300 movies
  • 750 TV shows
  • 100 foreign films
  • 2,400 songs
  • 18 live satellite TV channels

Delta’s fleet includes more than 1,000 planes that are equipped to provide access to Delta Studio media via passengers’ laptops or mobile devices.

The fleet also includes nearly 400 planes equipped to provide access to Delta Studio media via seat-back entertainment systems.

Tim Mapes, Delta’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer, said:

“The only thing better than operating the world’s largest in-flight entertainment-equipped fleet is providing it free to all our guests. Our commitment is to provide Delta customers with the industry’s best on-board services — period.”

Delta’s move to make on-board entertainment free follows its April decision to nix longstanding reservation fees for customers who purchase tickets by phone or in person.
