American Spotlight, American Airlines entertainment product, has launched its streaming video service on more than 200 additional aircraft in the domestic fleet.  Currently over 500 aircraft offer the seat-back video and streaming and in May 2015, the service will be added to its fleet of Airbus A319s, A320s and A321s.

"With the expansion of our digital entertainment, customers traveling on the majority of our mainline aircraft will know they have inflight entertainment available through their personal device or on the seatback in front of them," says Fernand Fernandez, American's vice president – Global Marketing.

As the summer travel season kicks off, American customers can view any of the following six movies free of charge through June 30, 2015.

  • Big Hero 6
  • Captain America
  • Frozen
  • Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Into The Woods
  • Maleficent

The programming is stored on aircraft hardware, ensuring that customers receive high quality streaming; it is offered in addition to air-to-ground Wi-Fi service already offered on all mainline narrow body aircraft.   

First-time streaming viewers simply open their browser, look for the Entertainment option and accept Gogo's invitation to install the Gogo Video Player plug-in, which can be downloaded quickly even during a flight.
