In a futuristic way, your experience in a train journey from Hyderabad to anywhere in India is going to change. Indian Railways and RailTel Corporation is gearing up to provide entertainment services to its passengers without having to rely on the internet.
If you've often traveled in trains, you know that streaming videos on YouTube and other such platforms is a daunting task due to network fluctuations. With something known as Content On Demand, passengers will be able to watch movies, shows, educational programs, etc uninterrupted for free and via subscriptions through Margo Network, a subsidiary of Zee Entertainment. Not just that, passengers will also be able to book cabs, buses, and trains through this no-internet service.
A full-day train journey doesn't seem like a bad idea now, does it?
Like how somethings are worth waiting for, officially estimated time for this service to roll-out is two years. Approximately 8,731 trains which include premium, express, suburban, and mail trains of Indian Railways will have this CoD service along with 5,573 Wi-Fi enabled railway stations spread throughout the country.
