Now Playing on British Air Long-Haul Flights: HBO

British Airways launched a new addition to its inflight entertainment line-up: an HBO channel, available to passengers on long-haul flights “from the moment they board, to the minute they land.”

So, in addition to current movies and other content, British Airways flyers can now binge on episodes of such HBO fare as “Game of Thrones,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “True Blood,” “Girls,” “True Detective,” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

Playlists can be previewed on the British Airways website, which also features a downloadable schedule planner.
