Tech boosts in-flight content streaming for plane passengers

Global Eagle Entertainment (GEE), a provider of aircraft connectivity systems and media content says its platform has been upgraded to boost in-flight entertainment for passengers.

According to GEE, the ENTICE (Entertainment, Information, Communication and E-Commerce)  platform offers wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE) on passenger devices.

GEE says that ENTICE, a wireless in flight entertainment on passenger devices with  hardware, software, content and services, was built to transform the in-flight passenger experience.

GEE reckons that ENTICE will reshape the IFE market for airlines “that have not traditionally offered in-flight content options.”

It further provides carriers with a new and more personalized option to extend their existing IFE footprint.

GEE says ENTICE brings up to 10,000 hours of content, personalized entertainment and passenger engagement.

Entice is powered by GEE’s Airtime platform, which delivers service on over 700 aircraft at present. As an integrated streaming platform, Entice is bundled and sold with a single, all-inclusive monthly recurring charge for hardware, software, content and services.

Explaining the new platform, Alexis Steinman, SVP of Digital Media Solutions for GEE said “Entice is a cutting-edge in-flight solution developed to help global airlines offer personalized passenger entertainment,”

“The volume of content and intuitive browsing delivers an experience comparable to popular home streaming services. It is the perfect solution for airlines seeking a new generation of IFE.”

According to GEE, Entice is also ready for upgrade to Ku- or Ka-band satellite connectivity with high speed Internet and live content.
