What happened to SAS Play?
 
Hi Guys

I noticed that the SAS Play information has been missing/gone from the SAS website and not in the app too?
(SAS Play listed all the movies/TV)

I always liked to check what movies where on board so as not to double etc...
Now with the new cabins and entertainment systems there will be more choices too I believe, but I can find it listed anywhere

Anyone have any insights?

It wasn't in the airplane either this week. Perhaps they discontinued it.

While the new entertainment is of much better quality than its predecessor, don't get fooled by thinking the library has increased one bit. Still the same old limited small selection of recent movies that you've probably already seen.

SAS corporate PROMISED a brand new web site in Jan 2016.
So i would guess they dont update the current one.

Out of curiosity, I am flying to HKG this week. Does anyone know, if the new James Bond or Star wars movies are been shown on-board?

Thanks :)

No chance, those two will only be available on board around the time the DVD is released. (Spectre: Feb 9, Star Wars VII: May 2016)

The reason why the content on the RAVE system is limited is probably connected to the high proportion of aircraft with the old system: airlines pay a flat licensing fee for the content shown and its calculated by the seats able to see it.

They weren't on there this Saturday, it didn't appear the library had gotten a refresh from the December content either.

Main issue with the content right now is that they fill it with 10-12 block busters and some popular tv shows. Though as Oliver points out, only after the BluRay release, which generally means most people will have seem them already.

What the library needs is less mainline and hence cheaper content. Some indy movies, documentaries or otherwise interesting items that don't have a multi-million dollar marketing budget, improving the odds of people finding something they can watch. I find the occasional Scandinavian movie which is decent and I will surely not have seen them but there is also a lot of garbage.

As far as I know the only time any Star Wars movie was available on an airline has been on the R2D2 painted ANA 787-9. At least that was the media story in Japan. So don't expect the current one to show up....

To be honest, I catch up on most movies on my trip. But blockbusters like 007 or Star Wars are best seen in a theater. Even with QRs mega screen its no fun watching these.

Movie listings available online?
 
I checked the "inflight entertainment" page on the SAS site, but couldn't find any list showing which movies will be shown onboard transatlantic flights in May and June.
Is the list available online somewhere else on the site?

And yes, I realize that the SAS movie offering is much smaller than competing airlines, so I'm prepared for that. :)

They have discontinued showing lists online of the inflight entertainment, since most of their longhaul planes got upgraded.

They also seem to have discontinued it onboard, or maybe just this flight.... Only listed on the system.

Long Haul In Flight Movie Updates
 
Any idea what is playing on the long haul flights? I am flying CPH-SFO and want to know if I should download any movies to watch. I flew 8 long haul trips between Scandinavia and the US last year. By September, I just put my eye shades on and tried to sleep the entire flight. The IFE & Food got real boring.
My last flight from MIA to OSL was the end of November. I am wondering if any updates happened between then and now. Thanks for any input !

I had CPH-EWR mid november and CPH-IAD start december: No changes
CPH-IAD again start January: I believe there were a few minor changes - but I am not entirely sure. Next one up is CPH-MIA in start Feb and ARN-HKG by mid Feb. Certainly hope there is an update before that.

Just flew CPH-DXB on EK. What a difference on IFE (and many other aspects)
