This initiative aims to change the way people view local trains as well as introduce the quotient of luxury and comfort in the trains. This would include a high-quality, buffer free streaming of new and popular TV shows as well as movies.
The content on demand services will be rolled out for two Rajdhani trains and the AC local of Western Railways (WR), according to a report by The Hindu. The service is expected to begin in the next two years and stream content including educational programmes, television shows and movies.
The service will be available in both paid and unpaid formats on a mobile app which can be downloaded by the passengers and used as a window. Passengers will be able to log in to the app, stream the content and enjoy the service.
This project will initially be piloted in the select few trains and will then launch for the more premier trains of the of Indian Railway.
The new content on demand service is another facility meant to lure passengers towards the more luxurious trains. Travelling via the Indian railway today is no less sophisticated than through flights and that is exactly what the railway is aiming towards.
