FANBOIS' EYES ONLY: United Airlines offers FREE MOVIES on iOS kit

In-flight content deal: Have Apple, will travel

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

High-flying fanbois will soon be able to use their iPhone, fondleslab or laptop to watch free video content on United Airlines flights.

Apple and United have struck a deal which will allow users of iStuff – running iOS 7 – to watch 50 movies and almost 200 TV shows free of charge.

However, fandroids shouldn't get any ideas just yet. On the webpage announcing the link-up, United Airlines are at pains to point out that "Android mobile devices are not fully supported at this time".

The new service will be available on most domestic (which means American) flights by the end of the year.

All fanbois need to do is download the latest United app and get on the plane. Some content will be accessible through a browser, whilst other bits will require the app itself. ®

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops
