Last week, Air Canada announced that it would be expanding its very popular inflight entertainment selection. It will do so via partnerships with Bell Media and Stingray. Bell Media provides inflight entertainment services with its premium entertainment service, Crave. Stingray is a multi-platform audio service, based in Canada.

Air Canada is trying to enhance its inflight entertainment, and with this new expansion, content selection will increase by 50 percent on some planes. Those flying on Air Canada and Air Canada Rouge can enjoy the popular American drama series Vida as well as The Girlfriend Experience, both from Starz. From Showtime, passengers can enjoy shows like Ray Donovan and The Affair.

For those looking for music and music documentaries, as well as concerts, Stingray delivers. Stingray will also showcase artist interviews, award show coverage as well as offer music video playlists. As far as music goes, passengers will be able to listen to everything from country to pop to hip-hop.

The airline is also boosting the variety of movies and TV shows it will offer, on both its newest narrow-body aircraft and wide-body aircraft. With these upgrades, flyers will be able to enjoy shows like How I Met Your Mother, as well as full collections of movie franchises. Soon, flyers will be able to enjoy both the Harry Potter and Matrix franchise. That's not all, Air Canada will also offer more content from HBO along with new releases from Disney.

To make its inflight entertainment system easier to use, the airline is going to introduce a new user interface. To get an idea on how much inflight entertainment Air Canada offers, you would have to fly around the world 22.5 times.
