London, UK, 1 October 2018: Leading onboard infotainment solution developer, GoMedia, is partnering with Chiltern Railways to launch the operator’s first onboard entertainment system, Chil.tv, featuring popular programmes from NOWTV, UKTV, Kids and Hayu.
Passengers can now indulge their favourite ‘guilty pleasures’ such as Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled and David Attenborough’s Conquest of the Skies, during their journey from their own devices using Chiltern’s complimentary Wi-Fi, saving the cost of paying for content or using up their own mobile data.
Eleni Jordan, Commercial Director at Chiltern Railways, says: “At Chiltern we like to do travel differently and we recognise that people are leading busier lives than ever before. We hope that with the introduction of Chil.tv, our customers will be able to take their mind off the hustle and bustle and relax and indulge in style.”
Working alongside Chiltern’s onboard Wi-Fi provider, Icomera, GoMedia and Chiltern Railways launched the service to passengers with an ‘Indulgence Zone’ created onboard the 12:55 from Birmingham to London on 26th September. An usherette provided complimentary retro sweets, as well as slippers and pillows for guests to enjoy whilst watching Chil.tv’s fantastic selection of programmes.
Dave Palmer, Managing Director of Icomera UK commented: “Having supplied Chiltern’s Passenger Wi-Fi since 2011, we have witnessed first-hand their continued commitment to offering a passenger experience that sets them apart. Their understanding of new available technologies, and willingness to embrace these, when appropriate, to deliver results, is one highlight of our successful collaborative relationship.”
Roger Matthews, Managing Director at GoMedia, adds: “We work with the world’s leading production houses to source the very best content for rail operators, to ensure the entertainment is accessible and suitable for the duration of the journey. Chiltern’s passengers can enjoy longer-form content without interruption on the operator’s London-Birmingham route, giving them time to sit back and relax.”
