    The last time I flew on SW I had problems watching TV on the flight and it seemed only the people with an android tablet were having this issue, has SW fixed this or are people still having any issues with their androids

    Don't know if they have fixed it, but I did get it to work using the dolphin browser instead of chrome

    It worked for me last year. Didn't work the year before. Dolphin browser has built in Flash support so I'd download that app before you go but I got it to work on Firefox last year.


    Good luck!

    I couldn't watch it in November from my tablet. Luckily I had my MacBook with me, so I broke it out and used it.

    Had trouble too. You have to try to download Dolphin or Firefox and then Flash before your flight to potentially get it to load. I just download a movie ahead of time now.

    SW recommends you download their player, to see/view TV and movies, before your flight. Used this on my Android phone with no issues.
