Virgin America On-Demand Video Library

Virgin America is doing things. And now that includes offering an on-demand music video library, courtesy of VH1. Now, the only thing I’ve ever seen worth watching on VH1 was The Flavor of Love, but some of you may get excited about this. The videos are available on the carrier’s New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC and Las Vegas routes. And guess what? They’re FREE!

The offering is part of the new Red(TM) inflight entertainment system, and includes videos “from the most popular artists and genres featured on VH1 networks.” That includes artists such as Maroon 5, Shakira, John Legend, Lily Allen, Kelly Clarkson, Nelly
Furtado, Mika and many more. They lost my attention after Maroon 5, but that’s probably just me. In the future, Virgin expects to expand to up to 50 music videos (which, let’s face it, is more than you’ll see on MTV in a month), including performances featured on VH1 Classic and VH1 Soul networks. I actually had no idea those even exist.

Passengers will soon have the option to make music video playlists and preferences inflight through Virgin America’s Red(TM) inflight entertainment system.” Pretty cool.

“Virgin America is all about bringing a little fun back to flying and music is a key component of this — from the soundtrack in our bathrooms to the 3,000 free MP3 tracks featured on our in-seat entertainment system,” said Charles Ogilvie. I haven’t had the pleasure of flying Virgin yet, but I’m intrigued by the bathroom soundtrack.
