Netflix has partnered with airlines across the world to increase the quality of airline Wi-Fi, reported Variety.
The streaming service has offered its bandwidth-efficient technology to airlines, which it says can improve streaming quality while reducing bandwidth costs by 75%.
Its mobile encoding allows the streaming of DVD-quality video at 250kbps on mobile devices.
