GoMedia expands provision of Eurostar entertainment

July 25, 2019

GoMedia has won a new contract broadening its supply of Eurostar’s onboard infotainment, penning an additional three-year contract with the international high-speed rail operator.

GoMedia has partnered with Eurostar since 2016, when it developed and launched the operator’s onboard news and entertainment system, providing content alongside other third parties. The new contract sees the company managing all entertainment and information services accessible on Eurostar’s infotainment platform.

Officially launching on August 1st, a content overhaul means passengers travelling between St Pancras International and mainland Europe will be able to watch hit movies such as Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and Jurassic World, French title Belle et Sebastien, and Dutch film Zomer Zonder Mama (Summer with Rana). More than 20 games will be available to play onboard, as well as a selection of Red Bull Studios including Cerro Torre – A Snowball’s Chance in Hell.

Sive Hughes, Digital Content Strategy Manager, Eurostar, said: “We are always looking to improve the customer experience, and our extended partnership with GoMedia will offer travelers a broader range of content to relax and unwind to whilst travelling at high-speed.”

Roger Matthews, managing director, GoMedia, added: “Eurostar was one of our very first customers so we are extremely happy to be extending our relationship with them to enhance and develop the passenger experience. We are always looking for ways to extend the capabilities of our services by sourcing the latest films, TV shows, news and gaming, and look forward to extending our offering with Eurostar in the future.”

From late 2019, a range of lifestyle, business and fashion content will also be available, plus daily news and weather updates from French news channel France24.
