· Virgin Australia to stream content, get in-flight WiFi as well
Meanwhile down under, Virgin Australia continues to be crazy busy bees. There's something new every second with them, luckily all of it positive thus far. The newest announcement concerns their in-flight movies, TV shows and music on planes without current systems, namely the 737-800s.
Our buddies over at Australian Business Traveller have all the details, including the fact that content will arrive to passengers via an onboard network, beaming it to personal mobile devices (your laptop, iPad, phone, etc).
Should you be out of the tech loop, Virgin Aus promises to have some rental tablets onboard, but first-come-first-serve those. Naturally following a system like this comes in-flight WiFi, but they're not totally set up for that yet, since this new content system won't even be up and running until after mid-2012.
