Rail passengers are set for a summer of love, as GoMedia is streaming ITV’s hit series Love Island on TransPennine Express (TPE) along with Emmerdale, Coronation Street, news and entertainment.
Every episode of the programme is uploaded nightly to TPE’s infotainment system EXSTREAM, enabling passengers to ‘crack on’ with the latest ‘bantz’ on their commute the following morning.
Love Island’s series opening episode scored ITV2 its highest ever ratings, making it the most-watched programme across the five major television networks, at the time of airing.
Roger Matthews, managing director, GoMedia, says: “Around 80% 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.”
GoMedia’s onboard infotainment systems deliver world class 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.
GoMedia works with a number of the UK’s leading transport operators, including Eurostar, Virgin Trains, National Express coaches, c2c, Abellio and TransPennine Express.
