United Airlines: Free live TV on United

In time for the Super Bowl, United Airlines will be presenting more than 100 free live TV channels in 211 Boeing 737 aircraft with entertainment systems, thus making undisturbed TV entertainment possible from gate to gate. In addition to the DIRECTV live offer at more than 30,000 seats at no additional cost, the United app also gives United customers access to hundreds of films and TV programs on their personal devices. You have several thousand hours of entertainment at your disposal.

"This year we're introducing a whole host of innovations and enhancements specifically designed to further enhance the travel experience for our customers," said Toby Enqvist, United's chief customer officer. “Our customers are the focus of our actions and we want to offer them the most relaxed and pleasant flight possible. The free entertainment systems integrated in the seat or available via personal devices are the best examples of this. "

“We are delighted that United is offering its customers free access to live TV on more than 200 of its aircraft. With DIRECTV you can feel like you are in your own living room, ”said Roman Pacewicz, Chief Product Officer of AT&T Business. "Whether it's the weekly favorite program or the game of the favorite sports club, with the free DIRECTV program United customers never miss an important moment."

Entertainment on your own device

Over the past year, United has expanded its entertainment offering to include aircraft that were previously only equipped with DIRECTV. This gives passengers the opportunity to access a collection of more than 280 free films and TV programs with their personal phones, tablets or laptops.


In addition, United has improved its entertainment offering for customers with impaired hearing and mobility with the “Accessible Entertainment” category available in its built-in entertainment systems. Accessible Entertainment offers an entertainment program in which titles are displayed together with a descriptive audio track and subtitles. United currently offers more than 20 films and TV shows with a descriptive audio track and another 50 with English subtitles. Depending on availability, some DIRECTV channels with subtitles are also available.
