Gogo has partnered with Magnolia Pictures (Magnolia) to provide airline passengers on Gogo Vision equipped aircraftaccess to pre-theatrical and theatrical release film titles.
Claimed to be a first for Gogo and starting in November, passengers on select aircraft will have access to in-flight entertainment (IFE) movie content such as The Last Days On Mars before it's in theatres and Best Man Down.Gogo Vision allows passengers to rent movies and television shows and stream them to their own Wi-Fi enabled devices. Passengers can select from a library of over 100 programmes from Hollywood studios. Renting videos through Gogo Vision starts at $3.99 for a movie and $.99 for a TV show. For passengers who don't finish their programme onboard the aircraft, Gogo Vision has a resumption of play feature that allows passengers to finish watching their programme on the ground for a 24-hour period on the same device.
“Magnolia has a strong history of bringing cutting edge and compelling content to market,” commented Gogo's chief commercial officer, Ash ElDifrawi. "Having pre-theatrical and theatrical releases available to passengers is a first for Gogo and it will help assure that there's always something fresh and exciting for passengers to watch when they use Gogo Vision."
"We are excited to be working with Gogo and their innovative Gogo Vision platform,” said Eamonn Bowles, President of Magnolia Pictures. “Airline passengers can finally have the same early window access to our amazing films that has been available in virtually every home, every mobile device and many hotels across the country.”
