Frequent flyers and TV buffs, rejoice. Delta Air Lines is looking to double down on expanding entertainment by partnering with the popular streaming service, Hulu, to provide more in-flight entertainment options than ever before.

The airline has equipped a record 700 aircraft with seat-back entertainment screens, more than any other airline in the world, and will be giving customers convenient access to its industry-leading Delta Studio lineup, which will soon include a suite of fan favorites from Hulu.

"Customers continue to tell us entertainment is a top priority," said Ekrem Dimbiloglu, director of onboard product and customer experience, for Delta. "That's why we keep extending our lead in having more aircraft with seat-back entertainment than any other airline in the world, and continue partnering with entertainment giants like Hulu to bring customers at-home favorites at 30,000 feet. These investments reinforce Delta's reputation as the entertainment airline."

Thanks to the new partnership with Hulu, Delta customers can watch award-winning Hulu original content onboard, including "The Handmaid's Tale," recent Emmy®-nominee "The Act," must-watch documentaries like "Fyre Fraud," and more.

This new content is in addition to the more than 3,000 movies, TV shows and music options already available through Delta Studio, free of charge to all customers in all cabins. Customers can also choose to stream Delta Studio to their personal devices on the airline's entire mainline fleet and most regional aircrafts, offering new and innovative programming so they can make the most of their time in flight.
