GoMedia streams ITV content on TransPennine Express

June 22, 2018

GoMedia is streaming a number of ITV hit series, including Emmerdale, Coronation Street and Love Island to rail passengers on the TransPennine Express

GoMedia’s onboard infotainment systems deliver content straight to passengers’ own smart devices, using a transport operator’s existing Wi-Fi infrastructure. All content – including movies; boxsets; digital magazines and newspapers – is accessed via onboard servers, meaning signal blackouts and tunnels don’t affect coverage.

Roger Matthews, managing director, GoMedia, says: “Around 80 per cent of people in Britain own a smartphone, so enabling transport users to stream excellent content on their own devices is a key step to achieving higher levels of journey satisfaction. Working with ITV to bring Love Island, Emmerdale and Coronation Street to TransPennine Express passengers enables them to catch-up with the biggest shows on British television right now, ahead of a busy day at the office – at no extra cost to them.”
