    Amazon is teaming up with JetBlue to stream its Prime Video service in the air.

    For passengers on most JetBlue flights, Amazon Prime members can stream tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes from Amazon Prime Video, including such original Amazon series asTransparent and Mozart in the Jungle, at no additional cost. Passengers who aren't Prime members will be able to buy or rent content that they can watch at 35,000 feet.

    Prime members on the plane will also have access to more than one million songs via Prime Music.

    Clarification: ALL streaming will be included in the new plan, not just Amazon Prime. Amazon gets top billing in the Fly-Fi portal and pax can earn TB points for purchases but all streaming will be free thanks to the financial partnership between Amazon & JetBlue.

    Surprising that Amazon would pay the bill for Netflix users, if I understand the arrangement correctly.

    The deal gets Amazon a ton of publicity and puts their offering front and center on the FlyFi portal. There must be some value there.
