TV on the train

You're now able to watch TV while travelling on some high-speed trains through Oxfordshire.

First Great Western have started installing mini TV screens on the back of seats on their high speed services.  They're a bit like the screens you find on aeroplanes.

On them, you can watch comedies, documentaries and even children's programmes, but you have to pay a fee of £3.95 to use them.

First Great Western say the service is aimed at people travelling long distances, rather than commuters. 

The screens are currently being used in 16 of First Great Western's high speed trains, but they're hoping to have them in all 54 of their high speed trains by November 2010, when you'll be able to book your use of a screen at the same time you book your seat.
