Qanta has commenced its “Q Streaming” trial in Australia:
We are proud to be the first airline to pilot the wireless inflight entertainment technology behind Q Streaming on one of our B767-300 aircraft. You’ll now have access to over 200 hours of on demand television and audio programs, streamed direct to a Wi-Fi enabled device.
You’ll find an Apple iPad 2 in your seat pocket for use during the flight. It comes in a protective case that will protect the device from damage and enhance viewing with a built-in stand. An iPad will be available in every seat pocket. That’s a total of 254 iPads, 30 in Business and 224 in Economy. Each iPad will come with an integrated headphone adapter that will enable you to connect the dual-pin Qantas headphones.
Our inflight entertainment programs are stored on a content server rather than directly on the iPads themselves. Programs are streamed wirelessly from the server to a Wi-Fi enabled device via five wireless access points installed along the aircraft’s ceiling.
If you are flying on the B767-300 with registration VH-OGH, why not try it out and tell us what you think. Your feedback will help us decide whether Q Streaming should be introduced to the rest of our fleet.
