Travel Tip of the Day: Free Entertainment with Personal Devices on United

UnitedFree Entertainment with Personal Devices on United
Flying United over the holidays? The airline announced last Thursday an upgrade to their entertainment service, which will now allow passengers to stream complimentary on-demand entertainment through their personal devices. That means if you have a phone or tablet (iOS and Android) or laptop, you’ll be able to watch hundreds of movies and TV shows (including Orange is the New Black and House of Cards) just by downloading the United app.

There’s nothing like nothing like being on a long flight without entertainment—especially these days when you expect the airline to have individual entertainment systems with movies and shows—so this is welcome news from United. Check out information (and get links to download the app) here.
