Why do I have to connect to ‘TPE Wi-Fi’ first?

All our entertainment content is stored locally on board the train, When connecting to the ‘TPE Wi-Fi’ this connects your device to the on board WiFi system to access the entertainment content but remember this is not internet access to the big World Wide Web!

The good news is, it doesn‘t use up your mobile data allowance and if you go through a tunnel or are in a poor connectivity area Exstream is still available to view!

Exstream is jam packed with entertainment, comedy, catch up TV, sporting highlights and not forgetting daily news, weather, and newspapers. If you fancy something different, play a game or relax and listen to our audio channel There is something for all!

What is “Your Live Train Journey”?

“Your Live Train Journey” enables customers to follow the progress of the train they’re travelling on in real-time, using their own personal device. Simply connect to the onboard Wi-Fi and select the “Your Live Train Journey” tile icon. The tool automatically gives you information relating specifically to the train journey you are currently on. The service will only work when you have connected to the onboard Wi-Fi, so please do not attempt to access it when you are not onboard the train.  

What if the train journey info is incorrect?
