Microsoft Zune flies with United Airlines
Posted on 4-Jun-2010 09:20 | Tags Filed under: News



United Airlines have announced that customers have more choices of free music with the introduction of Zune inflight audio on all United aircraft. United now offers customers a broader selection of music to enjoy during their onboard experience, with up to 21 separate playlists programmed by Zune, Microsoft’s premium digital entertainment service.

In addition to familiar channels such as Classic Rock, Contemporary Pop, and Classical, United now features distinctive options such as Soundtracks, Electronic Dance, Opera and Piano Jazz. Customers may continue to enjoy live communication between the flight deck and air traffic control through United’s popular “From the Flight Deck” audio on Channel 9, a feature that’s unique to United.

“United is committed to providing our customers with innovative onboard entertainment options, and we look forward to working with Zune and Microsoft to create new onboard experiences,” said Tom O’Toole, United’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer.

“We are excited about this collaboration, which will allow millions of United customers to experience Zune and discover new music through select Zune custom playlists from top artists,” says Dave McLauchlan, senior business development manager at Microsoft.

Full channel line-ups can be found in United’s in-flight magazine, Hemispheres.
