National Express coaches are getting on-board entertainment

Long-haul flights have offered seat-back TVs to distract weary passengers for some time, and it’s looking like it won’t be too long before every transport option has its own form of on-board entertainment. Following the arrival of Virgin Trains’ entertainment app earlier this year, National Express has announced a similar service called VUER — short for View, Unwind, Enjoy and Relax (sigh) — for its coaches. Launching at the end of November, the VUER app for Android and iOS will give passengers complimentary access to TV shows, magazines, news and weather via free on-board WiFi.

Initially coming to nearly 300 coaches on popular routes with over 100 hours of launch content, the entertainment service will reach National Express’ entire fleet by next summer. Live journey updates and films will also become available within the VUER app early next year. National Express is promising there will be something for adults and kids alike, hopefully keeping the little ones quiet on those long and boring cross-county trips.
