Amazon Prime subscribers can now stream movies, TV shows, and music on JetBlue flights without having to pay the airline’s $9 per hour fee for top-tier Wi-Fi. Non-subscribers can also use the Wi-Fi for free when purchasing Amazon content.

Announced back in May, the deal provides JetBlue flyers with access to “tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes, including exclusive Amazon Original series” while they’re 30,000 feet in the air via the airline’s satellite-powered Wi-Fi.

If you don’t have Prime, you’ll still get free Wi-Fi access when renting or purchasing videos and music from Amazon — and those purchases will earn you JetBlue point. To stream video and download content from third-party services, travelers would normally have to pay $9 per hour for JetBlue’s fastest Wi-Fi tier.

Flyers can currently enjoy this service on JetBlue’s Airbus A321 and Airbus A320 planes, and next year on its Embraer E190.
