ScooTV via Streaming
Juiced by Gogo, a leading provider of in-flight connectivity and wireless in-flight digital entertainment solutions, ScooTV features a buffet of blockbuster movies and popular TV shows that guests can stream to their own laptop or tablet at their own convenience during the flight.
Said Campbell Wilson, CEO of Scoot, “Scoot is excited to be the first airline in Asia to offer this innovative inflight entertainment option. Going wireless keeps our aircraft lighter, our costs down and our fares cheaper. And better yet, ScooTV empowers our guests with even more entertainment options.”
Refreshed every second month, ScooTV currently features Academy Award winner Natalie Portman’s stunning performance in Black Swan, Jackie Chan’s life-risking stunts in Shinjuku Incident, to a range of TV favourites. Guests in the Economy cabin will be able to catch all these and more for just S$15 (pre-purchase) or S$16 (onboard purchase) per flight, while ScootBiz guests can do so for free. For those without their own device, Scoot’s Rent-a-Tablet service will still be available at S$20 (pre-purchase) or S$22 (onboard purchase).
