Watch popular movies and TV shows on your own device with our personal device entertainment service, available on select aircraft.
This service is sponsored by the MileagePlus Explorer Card.
We are introducing a beta version of this new service, personal device entertainment, on select aircraft. This service gives you access to a library of movies and TV shows that you can watch on your personal laptop or Apple® iOS device. We're working to expand the service to include Android devices.
To determine if your upcoming flight offers personal device entertainment, check the Inflight Amenities tab in the Flight Status information within 24 hours of your flight departure.
