American Honda Motor Co. and AT&T have expanded their partnership just in time to lend an assist to summer road trips.
Now included with AT&T unlimited in-car WiFi and available on certain Honda and Acura models, the WarnerMedia Ride app will allow passengers to connect multiple devices in their vehicles to browse, stream and share premium content from the WarnerMedia library.
Honda and Acura owners have been able to turn their compatible vehicles into WiFi hotspots connecting up to seven smartphones or tablets dating back to 2017. With a growing number of compatible vehicles and greater consumer demand for mobile connectivity, American Honda and AT&T have extended their relationship and expanded available entertainment options for subscribers, the automaker says.
Passengers can now access 1,000+ hours of live and on-demand entertainment. The app includes hit TV shows and movies from top brands such as Cartoon Network, CNN, HBO Max, TBS, TNT and TruTV, spanning animation, entertainment, news and sports.
Owners can set up multiple profiles and personalize it with popular avatars from the WarnerMedia library. Profiles also ensure age-appropriate content with options for adults to restrict access to their profiles with an access code.
Wireless connectivity and connected car services continue to be key features for customers and the automaker’s long-standing relationship with AT&T is one way to deliver new content, says Art St. Cyr, vice president of North American Auto Strategy for American Honda. The automaker plans to continue working to enhance the in-car experience for customers via the app.
WarnerMedia Ride is available in the App Store (iOS 11+) or Google Play (Android 9+) for all U.S. unlimited data plan subscribers. The app is included at no additional cost for existing and new unlimited subscribers and automatically detects AT&T in-car WiFi without the need to log in.
