Top shows from UKTV’s stable of channels can now be watched by West Midlands Railways passengers after the broadcaster struck a content supply deal with GoMedia, which supplies on-board infotainment systems to rail and coach operators.
From today passengers can enjoy more than 300 episodes from the network’s Dave, Really and Yesterday channels including 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 at 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.”
Hugo Allen, Head of Commercial UKTV Play & VoD, UKTV, added: “We’re excited to partner with GoMedia because it gives even more people access to our brilliant programmes.
“With the likes of Jon Richardson and Dara O’Briain now available on rail services, we hope it helps make these journeys more entertaining and enjoyable for passengers.”
UKTV joins HBO, Universal Pictures, Warner Brothers, Sky News, and NOW TV on the GoMedia platform.
