Here at Virgin Atlantic, we’re proud to be one of the few airlines that selects their own movie and TV content – it’s all chosen by us, just for you. We’ve got loads of new TV content onboard each month from binge worthy boxsets, laugh-out-loud comedies right through to thought provoking documentaries.

Addicted to boxsets? We’ve got more than 30 onboard, from gripping thrillers to the latest comedies.

And don't forget to check out our family friendly viewing; to keep our younger travellers occupied.

Just a note: We have different types of entertainment systems on our aircraft, so sometimes the line up varies.

Amazing Grace

This documentary about the making of Aretha Franklin’s 1972 concert album, Amazing Grace, has been in the vaults for 48 years, mired by a series of legal battles. Thank goodness, then, that it’s out at last, because it is – quite literally – a religious experience. 

The Capture

Squaddie Shaun Emery is accused of kidnap but protests his innocence. DI Rachel Carey is assigned to investigate.

David Makes Man

Brilliant coming-of-age drama series set in South Florida, where poverty-stricken teen David juggles his studies at a school for gifted kids with his hardscrabble existence on the streets. It’s a balancing act that comes with a price... 


Simone is a well-off Londoner who must return her hometown of Newcastle. (That’s Newcastle in Australia.) 

Game Face

A guest who has never seen Friends is just one of Marcella’s headaches in this opening episode.


Telling the tale of rising internet star Austyn Tester (he of the hunky jawline), this compelling and eye-opening documentary functions as an affecting portrait of a teenager with big dreams, as well as a meditation on the seductive allure of social media. 

The Kingmaker

Acclaimed documentary in which disgraced ex-Philippines first lady (and shoe collector) Imelda Marcos takes centre stage, brazenly rewriting history as she embarks on a mission to rehabilitate her family name. In an era of ‘fake news’, it’s a tale for the ages.

Man Like Mobeen

Fresh, very funny, and rightly adored by critics, Man Like Mobeen focuses on Mobeen, a Brummie Muslim struggling with his criminal past and grappling with his faith. However, the biggest problem he faces is single-handedly raising his 15-year-old sister.


No doubt about it, the craft of writing a good obituary requires a certain kind of person and takes a special sort of skill. Here’s the documentary that lifts the lid on that rarefied trade, taking us behind the scenes with the obit writers at the New York Times. 


A comedy series starring Saturday Night Live’s Aidy Bryant as Annie, a larger woman who’s more than happy with her body but would dearly like to do something about the rest of her life. In other words, her career, her boyfriend, her parents, her boss...


Return of the bitingly funny HBO drama series that explores themes of power, politics and family through the eyes of an aging, uber-wealthy media mogul and his four grown children.

What We Do in the Shadows

A look into the lives of four vampires who have been roommates for hundreds and hundreds of years.
