United Air­lines is rolling out its own per­sonal de­vice en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem on­board se­lect air­craft. With this new ser­vice, spon­sored by the MileagePlus Ex­plorer Card, you can choose from over 150 movies and nearly 200 TV shows and watch them free of charge on your per­sonal de­vice.

To use the ser­vice, down­load the lat­est United app from the iTunes App Store for your mo­bile de­vice. An­droid and other mo­bile de­vices are not fully sup­ported at this time. Lap­tops do not re­quire the app to ac­cess the sys­tem.

Some pro­grams re­quire a browser plug-in on your lap­top or the lat­est United App on your Ap­ple iOS. This can be down­loaded at any time dur­ing your flight with­out pur­chase of United WiFi. Other pro­grams can be watched through the United Por­tal on your browser with no plug-in or app re­quired.You can start, stop, rewind, pause and switch your movie or TV show any­time.

United is adding the sys­tem to its fleet and says it plans to have it aboard all do­mes­tic air­craft by the end of 2014.You can check the ameni­ties on board your spe­cific flight 48 hours prior to flight time by vis­it­ing or us­ing the United app.
