[Avionics Today 11-24-2014] United Airlines customers using Android devices can now use the latest version of the United app to access the airline’s complimentary personal device entertainment service. The service enables passengers to view movies and television shows during flight on their Wi-Fi-enabled mobile devices and laptops. This content, stored within on-board servers, is available on nearly 200 United aircraft, including the carrier’s entire Airbus A319/A320 and Boeing 747 fleets and its Boeing 777 aircraft that operate primarily between the continental United States and Hawaii.

United launched a beta version of its personal device entertainment system earlier this year for laptop computers and Apple devices. The company expects to further expand device entertainment availability in the coming year to hundreds of additional aircraft. By 2015 most United aircraft will offer some form of In-Flight Entertainment (IFE), according to a statement released on the company.
