Sitting on a train can be quite boresome, especially if you are going a long way.

Virgin Trains has today launched something that they hope will cure this bordeom, called Beams it is a new on-board streaming application that will allow passengers to watch a select of films and TV shows whilst on the train.

The app is free to download and use, however, you can only stream content when on the train, where you will get access to around 200 hours of content.

Virgin Trains exxplains more:

BEAM content includes a selection of classic and new films such as The Wolf of Wall Street, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Bridesmaids, Theory of Everything and Despicable Me 2 as well as a mix of popular box sets and TV series from House of Cards, Poldark and Fortitude. To keep the kids busy, BEAM will have a separate section for children, playing popular TV shows like Peppa Pig, Ben 10 and Horrible Histories. A selection of leading magazines will also be available, including Newsweek, Men’s Health, Top Gear, Total Film, Hello, Grazia, Living Etc., Ideal Home and Marie Claire.

To celebrate its launch, Virgin Trains has partnered with Hollywood blockbuster Independence Day: Resurgence, the sequel to the Oscar-winning Independence Day which is also available on BEAM.An Independence Day: Resurgence train-wrap is being unveiled at London Euston today, with presenter Alex Zane showcasing the new train design to director Roland Emmerich and cast members, Liam Hemsworth and Jeff Goldblum, who each have a carriage decorated with images of their characters on the side.
