We’re busy working on a number of improvements to your on board service, including new trains, existing fleet refurbishments and enhanced WiFi.
From December 2018, we will also be starting to launch a complimentary, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) entertainment service, on South Western Railway services from London to Weymouth, Poole, Portsmouth Harbour, Southampton Central and some outer suburban services (operated by the white Class 444 trains, blue Class 450 trains and newly refurbished 442 trains).
The new Class 701 trains will be fitted with the service when they start rolling out in 2019, and the West of England line fleets will also be fitted by mid 2020.
The BYOD entertainment service does not require an internet connection, so streaming is uninterrupted while you're on board, and if your show isn't finished when you leave the train in the evening, you can resume watching the next day.
We'd love to hear what content you would like to see as part of the service. Please complete the survey to let us know your thoughts and preferences. Once you've completed the survey, you are welcome to share any additional suggestions by adding a comment at the bottom of this page
The Survey has now closed and this forum thread has been disabled - thank you all for sharing your thoughts.
What would be nice is if SWR could MOVE THE ELECTRIC SOCKETS. AWAY FROM THE TOP OF THE HEATERS. In their current positions they jab into the lower leg of window seat passengers and now make the journey incredibly uncomfortable. Comfort over crappy Entertainment any day.
