Travellers can stream a library of around 200 hours of content to their mobiles and tablets.

A number of airlines have introduced similar systems in recent years as many passengers have better screens on their own devices than the traditional seat-back televisions, which add extra weight to aircraft.

There is also a section for children, including Frozen, Peppa Pig, Ben 10 and Horrible Histories.

Patrick McCall, co-chairman of Virgin Trains, said: The new Beam app will make our passengers journeys fly by, feeling like they ve arrived at their destinations before they know it.

A spokeswoman for the train company said Beam would be available on all Virgin Pendolino services on the West Coast route and would be rolled out on the East Coast from Monday and Super Voyager West Coast services by September.

The exact content will vary across the East and West Coast franchises.
