YouTube on Thursday announced it was taking to the skies with a deal to stream shows from some of its partners free to seatback screens on Virgin America planes in the United States and Mexico.

Within two weeks, Virgin passengers will be able to tune into shows from five partners of the Google-owned video service including "H+ The Digital Series" from Warner Brothers, according to YouTube marketing manager Kate Berland.

"Bringing YouTube aboard Virgin America is part of a larger effort to bring you more of the videos you love, at heights you've never seen them before," Berland said in a blog post.

"So pack up your three-ounce containers, fasten your seatbelt, and join YouTube and Virgin America 35,000 feet in the air."
