Netflix to expand mobile-encoding technology to more airlines

Tuesday 26 September 2017 | 21:03 CET | News
Netflix will extend its mobile-encoding technology to airline carriers across the globe in 2018 in a bid to attract more airlines that want to offer low-cost or free Wi-Fi entertainment to passengers, according to online publication Variety.com. The first airline company to enter a deal with Netflix was Virgin America. Following this deal signed in 2015, Virgin America became able to offer free, in-flight Wi-Fi on selected aircraft. Aeromexico, Qantas and Virgin Australia signed similar deals with Netflix.
