Note that fewer planes are equipped with screens built into the seat, so you should prepare by bringing your own device like an iPhone or iPad to stream to.

The content that is currently streaming for free is below:

According to the report, American Airlines will continue to shuffle the content available from Apple TV+ as the streaming service releases new original series and films.
