(Best Syndication News) - American Airlines, Inc. (NYSE: AMR) announced the first phase of their Entertainment On Demand streaming video rental service during flights. The airline will be the first to offer this new on-demand service.

The streaming video will be available on American Airlines’ Boeing 767-200 aircraft, which is a fleet of 15 planes. During the initial phase, videos will be available on most of their flights between New York JFK and Los Angeles, and with flights between JFK and San Francisco. The introductory rate is 99 cents for each TV show and $3.99 for each movie rented.

The way the streaming on demand rental service works is the traveler, with a compatible Wi-Fi enabled laptop, will be able to access the in-flight library list of 100 TV shows and Movies. If they want to watch the show or movie, they sign up and then pay for the rental with either a credit card or debit card. The show is then streamed wirelessly to the laptop for viewing. The customer has 24 hours to view a movie and 72 hours to view a TV show. If they have not yet watched the rental, they can also watch the show on the ground using the same viewer they did during the flight. See demonstration below.

In the future, American Airlines plans to have their Entertainment ON Demand streaming inflight rental service available for almost all of their entire domestic fleet of aircraft.

American Airlines collaborated with Gogo to incorporate this service during their flights. During the upcoming months Gogo is planning to expand support for tablets and other Wi-Fi devices.
