Google Android smartphone and tablet owners flying on United Airlines will be able to stream TV shows and movies using the airline's free on-demand video entertainment solution. The streaming entertainment offering was available only for Apple iOS devices, but support for Android seemed inevitable.

The service is designed for 200 United aircraft, but will be expanded to United Express regional jets in the near future. The following aircraft are currently supported: Airbus A319, Airbus A320, Boeing 747 and Boeing 777 aircraft, with most flights travelling between mainland US and Hawaii.

 

"Travelers increasingly want to watch entertainment on their own devices, as shown by the measurable improvement in satisfaction among travelers who fly on aircraft with personal device programming," said Tom O'Toole, United SVP of marketing and loyalty.
