How many take advantage of the entertainment portal on SW?

How many of you log onto and use the entertainment portal while on the plane? And if you don't, what entertainment do you use? Do you read a book, talk with another passenger?

I use it and typically see many other passengers doing the same.

I do all the time and they just added new games to the portal this last week which is a fun way to pass time. 

 

They also add new movies monthly so if you fly a lot you don't have to watch the same few movies.

I have a bad habit of forgetting to bring earbuds / headphones, so when I *remember* to do that, I definitely take advantage!! Otherwise I try to sleep, read, or play games on my phone.

@byrdbrain591 are you just curious? Planning a trip and thinking about options?

 

I think live TV is very popular during football season and I was just watching playoff baseball earlier this week. Often I'll bring my tablet with downloaded Netflix and Amazon Prime Video shows as an alternative and I do love when I can get a good nap in.

Taking a trip to Wash DC and usually the planes I take have the entertainment screen on the back of the seat. I read SW has a streaming method.

@byrdbrain591  gotcha.... You can read more about the entertainment options and see how to connect in 4 steps on this site: https://www.southwest.com/wifi/#get-connected

 

You'll definitely want to download the Southwest app onto your device before you go on the trip. It's all pretty simple, but shout if you have any questions.

@byrdbrain591 More of like download reading material or movie to watch. Comedy should be of first choice. For instance: Jeff Foxworthy along with his comedy partners. It should be more of relaxing atomsphere whilist on flight. This is my best choice.
