The Netflix Internet TV network and Virgin America said they are joining forces to provide complimentary in-flight WiFi access that allows new and existing Netflix members to enjoy the entire Netflix catalog of films and award-winning shows.
Netflix users onboard Virgin America´s new ViaSat WiFi-equipped aircraft are now able to stream Netflix shows at no cost through March 2, 2016.
The experience is made possible by Virgin America´s recent connectivity partnership with ViaSat, which brings significantly faster WiFi to the airline´s 10 new airbus A320 aircraft being delivered from fall 2015 to mid-2016.
Virgin America and Netflix kicked off their #NetflixOnboard partnership with the surprise unveiling of a House of Cards and Netflix-branded aircraft and an appearance by Michael Kelly, the Emmy-nominated star of the series.
As the only airline based in Silicon Valley, Virgin America has been known for its innovative in-flight experience, including being the first (and still only) US airline to offer WiFi on every flight and power outlets at every seat.
Netflix is the world´s leading Internet television network with over 65 million members in over 50 countries enjoying more than 100 million hours of TV shows and movies per day, including original series, documentaries and feature films.
