Game of Thrones

a pivotal moment in the first series

BA announced “We’re excited to be the first airline in the UK to have a dedicated HBO channel, offering more entertainment options than ever before.”

BA is aware of the trend for ‘binge-watching’ on flights, with customers viewing back-to-back episodes of a TV series to keep up to date or simply catch up. Binge-watching or “gorging” is a phenomenon also recently acknowledged by Netfix which allows its customers to view as much content as they can deal with.

In addition to the series some movies will be shown.

British Airways In-Flight entertainment offers passengers on its long-haul flights a wide variety of audio and visual programs to choose from. For those passengers travelling in April, the selection includes hit British tv drama Ripper Street and comedy series Fresh Meat while Richard E Grant appears in acclaimed documentary Hotel Secrets which looks behind the scenes at some of the world’s most luxurious hotels. For film lovers, the selection this month includes Django Unchained, Quartet, Hyde Park on Hudson, This Is 40 & Les Miserables.
