United Airlines is preparing to launch a brand-new service for in-flight movies that will be exclusive to Apple’s iOS devices. The service will allow customers to stream around 150 movies and 200 TV shows to their devices completely free while mid-flight.

The airline plans to start rolling this service as soon as next month for some flights. The hardware to support the system needs to be installed in each plane individually, but United is hopeful that its entire domestic fleet will be outfitted with the technology by the end of the year…

The service will be accessed through the free United Airlines app. Laptop computers will also be supported with a browser plugin, but other types of mobile devices, such as those running Android or Windows Phone, will not be supported at launch.
