Indian low-cost carrier IndiGo is entering into a partnership with online video streaming service SonyLIV for inflight entertainment.
To use the service, passengers subscribe to it in the boarding or check-in areas, then download the content on their mobile phone or other personal device.
IndiGo will provide a link to its passengers through which they use the subscription. The content can then be watched onboard in offline or airplane mode.
As it is a weekly subscription, passengers will have unlimited access to SonyLIV’s premium content catalogue for 7 days. This means they can watch it on their own device even when not in flight.
In a press release, IndiGo said, “SonyLIV is home to award-winning English shows like The Good Doctor, Counterpart, The Spanish Princess, Britannia, Victoria along with a string of acclaimed originals like Gullak, Heartbreak Hotel, Holycross and 16 amongst others.”
IndiGo is a low-cost airline, mainly operating on Indian domestic routes. It has a 47 per cent share in the domestic market, making it the leading airline in India.
Since inception in August 2006, IndiGo has grown from a carrier with one plane to a fleet of over 240 aircraft today.
