GoMedia is bringing a selection of HBO’s hit-shows including select episodes from the first and second seasons of Game of Thrones and the first season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Wire and The Sopranos to rail customers for the first time as part of its latest on-board entertainment package on TransPennine Express (TPE).

Continuing to expand its market-leading portfolio of transport operating companies that already includes Virgin Trains, Eurostar, National Express coaches and c2c, GoMedia’s latest development brings news, TV and movies to TPE customers. The service, named Exstream, was launched to TPE passengers by Kristian Nairn, best-known for playing the role of Hodor in Game of Thrones.
