June 25, 2018

GoMedia, the onboard infotainment systems developer for rail and coach operators, has announced UKTV as its newest content partner.

Passengers on West Midlands Railways’ trains can now enjoy shows from UKTV Play, the broadcaster’s on-demand service. The content update brings more than 300 episodes of programmes from the network’s Dave, Really and Yesterday channels. Programmes include Jon Richardson: Ultimate Worrier, Dara O Briain’s Go 8 Bit, Yianni: Supercar Customiser, Into the Fire and Football’s 47 Best Worst Songs.

By September, UKTV shows will also be available for c2c Rail, TransPennine Express and Greater Anglia passengers.

Roger Matthews, Managing Director, GoMedia, said: “GoMedia’s focus has always been on increasing passenger satisfaction through the connected onboard experience. Partnering with UKTV will bring the best of British comedy and entertainment direct to passengers’ devices, making the daily commute a more enjoyable part of their day. Focusing on episodic TV will appeal to a wider range of passengers and enable them to dive in and out on their commute, or watch several episodes on a longer journey.”
