DALLAS, April 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BoltBus, a bus line focused on providing exceptional service, luxury and convenience at an amazingly low price, today announced the launch of its free on-board entertainment system across its entire fleet to complement the premier on-board experience. The installation of the new system began last year in the California and Pacific Northwest markets, and most recently completed installation in the Northeast, now making it available across the entire BoltBus fleet.
BoltBus became the first in the U.S. intercity bus industry to introduce a bring-your-own-device on-board entertainment experience when it piloted the feature in 2013.
"We are thrilled to complete the installation of our new on-board entertainment system across the entire BoltBus fleet," said David Hall, general manager of BoltBus. "We know BoltBus commuter and leisure riders want to stay connected when they travel, and we received positive feedback following the pilot launch of our entertainment system in our Pacific Northwest markets a few years ago, so we are excited to finally offer this entertainment option to travelers across the country."
The entertainment system enables customers to enjoy movies and television shows, play games, surf the Web, and read the latest news – all completely free and all from their own Wi-Fi enabled devices including laptops, tablets or smartphones. The new system also features increased bandwidth for an improved Wi-Fi experience at no charge, and it now offers a more premium Internet option allowing for faster surfing and more productivity for a small fee. Customers will be able to choose from an extensive library of Hollywood movies, premium cable and network television shows, 15 video channels, and current news videos.
To ensure content remains fresh, new movies will be added each month, video channels will be updated weekly and news will be delivered on the hour. A portion of the movies in the library are new releases, available as early as 90 days after release into movie theatres, in some cases before they're available on DVD. The content for the entertainment system is stored on each bus and is therefore not reliant on external cellular signals to provide the best possible viewing experience.
The on-board entertainment system is offered in conjunction with BoltBus' premium on-board experience including free standard Wi-Fi, power outlets, leather seats and extra legroom. For more information about the new on-board entertainment system, visit www.boltbusentertainment.com.
