YouTube Takes Flight with Virgin America
YouTube on Thursday announced it was taking to the skies with a deal to stream shows from some of its partners free to seat-back screens on Virgin America planes in the United States and Mexico.
Within two weeks, Virgin passengers will be able to tune into shows from five partners of the Google-owned video service including "H+ The Digital Series" from Warner Brothers, according to YouTube marketing manager Kate Berland.
"Bringing YouTube aboard Virgin America is part of a larger effort to bring you more of the videos you love, at heights you've never seen them before," Berland said in a blog post.
"So pack up your three-ounce containers, fasten your seat-belt, and join YouTube and Virgin America 35,000 feet in the air."
