In addition to the many successful projects that have already been rolled out across the UK, GoMedia has made high quality media content available on the TransPennine Express (TPE) and Greater Anglia Trains. The services will run alongside Icomera passenger Wi-Fi as part of a newly enhanced rail passenger experience.
GoMedia is bringing a collection of HBO’s hit-shows, including select episodes from the first and second seasons of Game of Thrones, to rail customers for the first time as part of its latest on-board entertainment package on TPE.
The service is available for all customers travelling between Glasgow/Edinburgh and Manchester Airport, giving them the chance to view more than 150 shows and films. Passengers will need to download the app to their own smart devices and will be able to access the content once connected to the free on-board Wi-Fi.
Also GoMedia is announcing the launch of its service on Greater Anglia, bringing free news and entertainment to passengers as they travel. Advertising and sponsorship opportunities on the Wi-Fi and the media portal will be managed by KBH Digital.
The media portal will feature TV box sets from hayu and NOW TV, as well as digital magazines and movie trailers. A service from Reuters will provide passengers with the latest news and sport headlines. Passengers stream the content to their own smart devices through an app, available on the App Store and Google Play, or via a web browser.
Roger Matthews, Managing Director, GoMedia, said: “We work alongside some of the biggest production studios and digital rights management companies in the industry, which enables us to source high quality content.
“It is our objective to increase passenger satisfaction and by providing free news and entertainment, in combination with the Wi-Fi service provided by the operator, we will turn previously dead time into productive time and create more enjoyable experiences for passengers.”
Greater Anglia and TPE are now part of a rapidly growing GoMedia portfolio that includes Virgin Trains East and West Coast, Eurostar, National Express coaches and c2c.
