ITASCA, Ill., Oct. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO), the world leader of in-flight connectivity and a pioneer in wireless in-flight digital entertainment solutions, has partnered with Magnolia Pictures to offer their movies to airline passengers through Gogo Vision. The content will include pre-theatrical and theatrical release titles, which is a first for Gogo.
Gogo Vision allows passengers to rent movies and television shows and stream them to their own Wi-Fi enabled devices. Passengers can select from a library of more than 100 programs from major Hollywood studios. Renting videos through Gogo Vision starts at $3.99 for a movie and $.99 for a TV show. For passengers who don't finish their program onboard the aircraft, Gogo Vision has a resumption of play feature that allows passengers to finish watching their program on the ground for a 24-hour period on the same device on which they rented the movie or television show.
"We continue to enhance and improve the offerings that passengers can find on Gogo Vision," said Gogo's chief commercial officer, Ash ElDifrawi. "Magnolia has a strong history of bringing cutting edge and compelling content to market. Having pre-theatrical and theatrical releases available to passengers is a first for Gogo and it will help assure that there's always something fresh and exciting for passengers to watch when they use Gogo Vision."
Starting in November, passengers on select aircraft will have access to THE LAST DAYS ON MARS, a sci-fi thriller starring Liev Schreiber (Ray Donavan, X-Man Origins: Wolverine), before it's in theaters. They'll also have access to BEST MAN DOWN, a smart and moving comedy starring Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard) and Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale Vs Evil).
"We are excited to be working with Gogo and their innovative Gogo Vision platform. Airline passengers can finally have the same early window access to our amazing films that has been available in virtually every home, every mobile device and many hotels across the country," said Eamonn Bowles, President of Magnolia Pictures.
