About Us

OUR HISTORY

Stellar Entertainment began in 1974 as Helen Irvine Airline Entertainment, when Rob and Helen Lynch answered a newspaper ad to manage some inflight audio entertainment. Under the stewardship of the Lynch’s, the company has grown exponentially to become a full-service Content Service Partner. Having operated for over 40 years, Stellar Entertainment is the longest established continually running IFE company in the world.

 

With seven offices located around the world, Stellar Entertainment’s reach is truly global.
