Singapore Airlines' low-cost offshoot Scoot is now offering streaming of video to passengers' own laptops and tablets – but not smartphones – through its onboard ScooTV service backed by inflight tech specialists Gogo.
Scoot tells us that it's available on all aircraft and all routes, and runs on Apple and Android tablets.
You'll need a free plugin for your laptop or Android tablet, which Scoot makes available onboard over its wifi network, but iPad users need to download the free Gogo Video Plugin app before they board the flight.
Travellers in Scoot's business class enjoy the service free of charge; in economy, you're up for a quite reasonable $12.
The content's refreshed every two months and is the same as what you'll find preloaded on Scoot's inflight iPad rental service, which is still available for around $16.
Upmarket meals, too
Scoot is also upgrading its inflight meals with a new 'premium selection' priced at S$7 (A$5.40) above the budget's airlines usual fare.
On the menu are 'local favourites' such as beef sukiyaki for Tokyo and Taipei flights, braised beef brisket on Chinese routes, nasi lemak for Thailand and Beef Bourguignon Pie from the Gold Coast to Singapore.
The meals include a drink and two sides such chocolate cake, apple crumble, fresh fruits or salad.
