New Zealand based carrier, Pacific Blue, has doubled the number of digEplayers across its fleet, selecting the digEplayer L7s for flights from Christchurch and Auckland to Australia and some Pacific Islands.The players are rented out to passengers for $20 NZD and feature a variety of movies, television shows, music and games.“Our relationship with Pacific Blue began in 2005 with the award winning digEplayer 5500. Then in 2008, they upgraded to the digEplayer XT. Today, we are happy to announce that Pacific Blue has joined our expanding list of digEplayer L7 users,” declared digEcor’s Marketing Director, Adam Williams.“The ease of upgrading is one of the advantages that we, and portables, offer. We repeatedly see customers launch with one model and then upgrade to the current device when they renew their contracts," added Williams.Previously unannounced, parent company Virgin Australia has been flying the digEplayer XT in First Class as a free amenity since late last year.
