London Midland has unveiled a free entertainment package of movies, TV programmes, eBooks and magazines plus wi-fi on its trains. The new service is called ‘Motion’.
This is the first time movies have been available on trains on a web browser – so no need to download an app before travelling. The Motion entertainment package will operate independently of the free passenger Wi-Fi connection, freeing up that all-important bandwidth for those who need it most. To give the best possible service, a state-of-the-art router is connected to three different networks providing the fastest free connection currently available on UK railways.
The Wi-Fi and entertainment package has already been installed on over half of London Midland’s long-distance fleet and Birmingham’s Cross City line between Lichfield and Redditch. By October, passengers on over 70 per cent of journeys will be able to enjoy the new service.
