Originally launched in 2013, VIA Rail upgraded its complementary On Train Entertainment system and doubled the video content library. The portal now offers 150 hours of all-Canadian programming for passengers to choose from. Daily news, and TV shows from the CBC, animation and documentaries from the National Film Board, and vignettes from Historica Canada and the Canadian Heritage Information Network can now be found on all of VIA Rail’s trains within the Québec city - Windsor corridor.
