Selected based on previous viewership trends, featured shows include the tenth season of “Friends,” “The Office (US),” “Bahamas Life,” and “Beat Bobby Flay.”
More Premium Partners and Special Curated Content You'll Love
Just in time for back to school, Delta reaffirms its commitment to education by launching a new partnership with KidNation. Co-Founded by three-time Grammy® Award winner, actor, entrepreneur and philanthropist Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, KidNation delivers family-friendly, wholesome educational entertainment through danceable songs and dynamic videos designed by artists, educators and child development experts.
KidNation’s enriching content focuses on key developmental areas such as health and wellness, education, and current social and cultural movements.
The refresh also gives an opportunity to celebrate the return of international travel, with 20 new films from more than eight countries that remind us of the connections made around the world through film. Among those, Delta will have onboard “The Girl Who Wore Freedom” – an independent film added in partnership with Delta’s Veterans Business Resource Group (BRG) – that details the connections made between the people of Normandy, France, and the American GIs who liberated them on D-Day.
Premium and personalized content is central to Delta’s vision for a more connected onboard experience. In addition to Delta Studio content, customers can enjoy 12 channels of live satellite TV**, free messaging, and fast, reliable high-speed connectivity on more flights.***
