Virgin Trains has decided to be all modern and on-trend by launching its own free, Netflix-like entertainment service, called Beam, which will inevitably make the ticket inspector's job a little more annoying "Excuse me, mind looking at me, reading my lips, hitting pause and rummaging around in your pockets for me?"
Passengers on Virgin Pendolino services on both the West Coast and East Coast routes will be able to use the app to stream movies and TV shows as well as play games and read books while they travel, and the service should come to Super Voyager West Coast trains this September.

But what about data costs and mobile dead spots?
There's no point in any of this if DiCaprio's mouth keeps freezing mid-way through testosterone-fuelled lad speech.
Well, Virgin Trains says Beam works with an an-board server and doesn't rely on either a Wi-Fi connection or mobile data.
Do make sure you use a pair of headphones though, especially in the Quiet Zone.
