Maxdome launches on high-speed trains

MaxdomeGerman video-on-demand service Maxdome is now available on high-speed trains following a deal between its owner ProSiebenSat.1 and Deutsche Bahn.

Maxdome will be available to high-speed train passengers by the end of this year, and the on-demand service will be the only video entertainment service available on the trains, accessible via WiFi provided by Deutshe Bahn.

The service allows passengers to use their laptops or mobile devices to watch selected content while travelling, even if they do not currently have a Maxdome subscription. Each customer will be able to access a collection of 50 regularly rotating films and series for free, according to ProSiebenSat.1.

To access the rest of the Maxdome service, travellers can upgrade to a Maxdome subscription from the train.

“The ICE portal will be strengthened by the addition of maxdome’s unique entertainment services by the end of 2016. Travelling with ICE trains will be much more enjoyable for our customers thanks to this video service,” said Michael Peterson, management board member of DB Fernverkehr.

“Offering Maxdome on the trains provides passengers with a significant added value. Customers will be able to enjoy films and series without having to download them beforehand, without using mobile data, and without having the stream cut out while going through a tunnel. It doesn’t get more convenient than that,” said Marvin Lange, managing director, Maxdome.
