Row 44 runs one of the largest and most used in-flight broadband entertainment platforms. The company has teamed up with major TV and movie studios including Twentieth Century FOX, Universal, Warner Bros. and Disney to turn the WiFi devices passengers have on the flight into screens that can be used to enjoy movies and TV shows during the flight.

Any WiFi enabled device like a computer, smartphone, or tablet can be used to watch episodes of TV shows or full-length films from the participating studios during the flight. Films that will be available include Avatar, Harry Potter, Inception, Toy Story and more. The content offered will include multiple genres from action and drama to children's titles.

The platform will also offer live streaming IPTV directly to the devices to allow the passengers to watch live TV on their screens from CNBC, Fox News Channel, and VERSUS. Being able to watch a good movie would certainly make the time pass faster on the plane. There is no word on the pricing of the Row 44 service.
