TNX UK has signed an agreement to install six to eight television screens in each car of London commuter operator c2c’s EMU fleet.

The project is being funded by advertising and sponsorship. Passengers will receive ’near real-time programmes’ including news, sport, weather and general interest features; real-time travel information is to follow. Quiet zones will be provided on the trains.

A similar scheme was launched on Central Trains services in Birmingham on July 27, with screens fitted to Class 323 EMUs.

  • Tyne & Wear Metro operator Nexus is testing the provision of travel information by interactive digital television. ’Not everyone has access to the internet, but virtually every household in Tyne & Wear has television’, said Corporate e-Business Manager Ken Brown.
