Inflight entertainment

Live seatback television, inflight movies and shows

WestJet is pleased to offer live satellite seatback television provided by Bell TV on most Boeing 737 flights within Canada. You'll get to choose from our channel line-up of the best in sports, news, lifestyle and more. On domestic flights of 2.5 hours or longer you can also watch one of the latest pay-per-view Hollywood blockbusters.

WestJet flights serving great U.S. and international destinations will offer either seatback television with complimentary stored programming or a limited number of tablet rentals, for a fee, on flights without seatback television. We also recommend bringing books, magazines, tablets, portable DVD players or toys for your little WestJetters. For a description of our tablet rental program please see below.


Earbuds are available for purchase on all flights that offer inflight entertainment options. They're yours to keep, so you can use them on all your WestJet flights (they're also compatible with all your other gadgets). If you have your own earbuds, bring them along. All 3.5 mm (approximately 1/8 in) stereo headphone connections (with one prong) will work with our systems.

Tablet rental program

WestJet has introduced tablet rentals as we transition to our new inflight entertainment system. A limited number of tablets will be available on eleven of our newest aircraft instead of live seatback television for flights over three hours and 20 minutes, not including our red-eye flights. Guests will be able to rent a tablet preloaded with early-release movies and television shows. The rental price is $5-5.75 and comes with our basic earbuds.

Travelling with WestJet Encore

As our WestJet Encore turboprop aircraft are not equipped with an inflight entertainment system, we recommend bringing books, magazines, portable DVD players/tablets for yourself and some toys for your little WestJetters. Just remember your carry-on allowance is limited. You can also enjoy WestJet Magazine – our inflight magazine – available in the seatback pockets.
