About GoMedia

Our history, people and unique expertise

Our History

GoMedia was born in 2015 out of a simple desire to make time spent on transport better (or as Egor, our Director of Engineering, likes to say "Help passengers fight boredom!"). We believed an improved onboard experience would in turn improve overall customer satisfaction. (A theory that has since been born out to be true across multiple clients.) With an initial focus on offering entertainment services on trains, the timing was right – on-board Wi-Fi was becoming ubiquitous and smart phone ownership was now the norm. 

In February 2016, GoMedia was proud to launch with its first client, Eurostar, and a few months later with Virgin Trains. Since then we have added six more clients including National Express Coaches and TransPennine Express, and additional services. It was a natural evolution to add information services to our offering to keep passengers up to date on the progress of their current journey and help them plan their onward travel.

A unique focus

Three years on, we still have the same aim that we had at the outset - to make the time spent on the move more enjoyable. After all, most of us spend many hours travelling – perhaps to work each day or longer trips for a weekend break or holiday. So we want that to be time to feel good - whether it’s sitting down to a movie on an inter-city train or checking all is ok on your onward journey during the morning commute - we’re keeping people entertained and informed.

This is all we do. And we are good at it. We work with some of the leading transport brands, content owners and technology providers, have developed our own trusted tech developed specifically for on-board use, have grown rapidly in three years, achieved several ‘firsts’ including the first company to put Amazon Prime on a train and our solutions have won many awards for our clients.
