Double-check Your Device is Up to Date for Delta's New In-Flight Entertainment
This month, Delta launched free in-flight entertainment on all its routes, following in the footsteps of Southwest Airlines and becoming the first of the "big three" to offer it.
On aircraft with televisions in the seatbacks, the system is pretty self explanatory. But on older planes where there are no personal entertainment systems, the content will need to be accessed through your own device, such as a laptop, iPad, or Tablet. If you're using an older computer or operating system, you'll need to update it in order to stream the database of movies and television shows.
Here's what you need:
iPhones and iPads: Safari on iOS 4.3 and above
Android Tablets: Android browser and Chrome on Honeycomb and above; Nook, Kindle, and Android 4.2.2 not supported
Windows 7 and 8: Internet Explorer 8 and above; Firefox 19 and above
Mac OS X 10.6 and above: Safari 5 and above; Chrome 26 and above
You'll want to make these adjustments before flying. The entertainment system works through Go-Go Internet, but it does not give you access to browse the web unless you pay separately for an Internet access package.
