British Airways has teamed up with HBO to offer HBO programmes on long-haul flights
With programmes such as Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, Girls, True Detective, Looking and Curb Your Enthusiasm to be shown.
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.
