Why The New Planes Got Rid Of The Seat-Back TVs

If you’ve recently taken a flight on a brand new commercial plane, you may have noticed that the traditional in-flight entertainment system, namely those tiny screens embedded on the back of seats, has gone missing. This change is propelled by two major reasons. Firstly, flyers generally prefer using their own gadgets for personalized entertainment. Secondly, with the proliferation of in-flight WiFi, many airlines are charging a hefty fee for the Internet connection. This new development neatly dovetails with the rapid rise of OTT streaming services which will undoubtedly become popular entertainment options once available in-flight.
