Singapore Airlines’ low cost airline, Scoot, has launched ScooTV, an in-flight entertainment system that allows passengers to stream content to their own Wi-Fi devices.
Powered by Gogo, a provider of in-flight connectivity and wireless in-flight digital entertainment solutions, ScooTV features a buffet of blockbuster movies and popular TV shows that passengers can stream to their own laptop or tablet at their own convenience during the flight.
Campbell Wilson, chief executive of Scoot, said: “Scoot is excited to be the first airline in Asia to offer this innovative in-flight entertainment option.
“Going wireless keeps our aircraft lighter, our costs down and our fares cheaper.
“And better yet, ScooTV empowers our guests with even more entertainment options.”
Refreshed every second month, ScooTV currently features Academy Award winner Natalie Portman’s stunning performance in Black Swan, Jackie Chan’s life-risking stunts in Shinjuku Incident, to a range of TV favourites.
Passengers in the Economy cabin will be able to catch all these and more for Sin$15 (pre-purchase) or Sin$16 (onboard purchase) per flight, while ScootBiz guests can do so for free.
Scoot’s network now comprises nine cities, namely Singapore, Sydney, Gold Coast, Bangkok, Taipei, Tianjin, Tokyo, Qingdao and Shenyang, with 35 more destinations offered in conjunction with partner airlines.
