Air Canada is now showing content from Apple TV+ onboard its flights.

Passengers can watch some of the movies and TV shows available on Apple TV+ during their flights, even if they’re not subscribers.

Apple TV+ is an American subscription streaming service owned and operated by Apple. It only shows original (i.e. made for Apple TV+) content and is Apple’s rival to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney+.

The partnership means that programs like Ted Lasso, Bad Sisters, Severance, Foundation and more will be available to all Air Canada passengers.

All content onboard Air Canada’s inflight entertainment equipped aircraft is free for all passengers. BUT, they have to pay for Wi-Fi.

The airline’s partnership with Apple follows their recent collaboration with Mattel which brings more family fun with some of the most popular kids’ shorts.
