United Airlines and Microsoft have just announced they’re going to start offering free music to customers via Microsoft’s Zune digital music service on United flights. On all aircraft, passengers will be able to choose from 21 different playlists programmed by Zune including Classic Rock, Pop and Classical as well as more niche channels like Soundtracks, Electronic Dance, Opera and Piano Jazz.
The programs are accessed by plugging in compatible headsets into the jacks in the armrest and selecting the station of your choosing (the full list is in the airline’s in-flight magazine, Hemispheres).
The new playlists will arrive on all flights this summer, both domestic and international, and each channel will include 3 straight hours of unique programming.
