Babcock GoMedia partnership expands with new c2c (VoD) service
The Babcock GoMedia partnership is going from strength to strength after adding a new service to its portfolio. Passengers on c2c routes will now be able to have access to a wide range of high quality films and television content.
The service, provided by GoMedia, utilises Babcock International Group's (Babcock) multi-platform distribution offering to encode, encrypt and add subtitles to the content and then distribute it directly into the GoMedia platforms The services continue GoMedia and Babcock’s close relationship and follows hot on the heels of existing services to National Express, Eurostar and Virgin East and West coast trains.
Passengers will be able to access, through an online portal, streamed content from movies to travel information direct to their own mobile devices - tablets, laptops and phones.
