Cathay Pacific first Asian carrier to bring HBO Max to every seat

10 December, 2021

Cathay Pacific is premiering the HBO Max branded channel in Asia for the very first time, becoming the first airline in Asia Pacific to introduce HBO Max Originals to its seatback inflight entertainment (IFE) experience. 

Hong Kong’s home airline will debut the HBO Max brand starting 1 January 2022, bringing more than 200 hours of content in the first three months to every seat. The HBO Max library includes award-winning recent hits such as the first three seasons of Succession, as well as The White LotusThe Undoing and Mare of Easttown, along with original series such as Friends: The ReunionHacksGossip Girl (2021) and The Flight Attendant, along with all-time classics including Sex and the CityThe SopranosThe WireGame of ThronesBand of Brothers and much more.

Cathay Pacific already has the largest inflight movie and TV library in Asia Pacific and seatback entertainment is equipped on every aircraft, in every seat. This content innovation builds on the airline’s latest offering of 4K content and Bluetooth headphone pairing (being introduced progressively) launched on its Airbus A321neo fleet earlier this year.

General Manager Customer Experience and Design Vivian Lo said: “To be the first in Asia to launch the HBO Max brand, not just onboard flights but anywhere is exceptional. It’s a great example of an airline and streaming service working together to bring an unprecedented entertainment experience to passengers and we hope our customers find their next new binge-worthy show on Cathay Pacific.

“During the pandemic, we have been hard at work to bring our entertainment offering to new heights ready for the return of passengers. HBO Max offers some of the most critically acclaimed and exciting shows on the market. This partnership enables us to have more complete limited original series than ever before.”

Cathay Pacific offers an extensive content set consistently on all long-haul flights and many short-haul flights, including those operated by its A350, Boeing 777 and A321neo aircraft. The HBO Max partnership also includes the Warner Bros. movie library with new releases such as Space JamSuicide Squad and Dune. Overall, in the next year the airline plans to add over 300 hours of HBO Max content adding to the vast array of movies, TV shows, music, podcasts, live news, digital magazines and games currently available.
