A new partnership between the disruptive video service and Virgin America could bring a new meaning to the term ‘jetstream.’


From Tuesday, Netflix subscribers traveling on a Virgin America flight equipped with ViaSat wi-fi will be able to binge watch their favorite shows without paying for in-flight internet access.

Unlike a number of in-flight wi-fi systems, ViaSat offers connection and streaming speeds fast enough to allow TV addicts and cinephiles to stream content without buffer frustration.

Virgin America currently has 10 aircraft equipped with the system and Netflix subscribers who are lucky enough to be flying on one of those planes will be able to access the wi-fi free of charge for Netflix-based use up until March 2, 2016.
