Cartoon Network shows board National Express coaches

Ben 10, The Powerpuff Girls and We Bare Bears are set to join National Express coaches this year, following a deal with Turner.

To mark the partnership, a number of Stansted and Luton National Express coaches have been wrapped with Cartoon Network, Great Big Story and CNN liveries to showcase the new series available on board.

Rolling out this week, kids will be able to watch shows free of charge via VUER with their phone or tablet via the free Wi-Fi service.

“We are delighted to announce this fantastic new cartoon and news content on VUER– a superb addition to the already broad range of content available on board our services – making journeys on coaches even more enjoyable and relaxing,” said Chris Hardy, MD of National Express Coaches.

"We are looking forward to expanding our partnership with Turner with the possibility of adding more of their excellent programmes in the future.”

Parents will also be kept entertained with the new addition on VUER of lifestyle programmes from CNN, which includes interviews with Lewis Hamilton and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Rachelle Peterson, global director of commercial distribution at CNN International Commercial, added: “We’re excited to offer a wide range of programmes from Cartoon Network’s top kids’ shows to keep the children entertained on their journeys on National Express and give adults the chance to explore destinations and stories from CNN lifestyle shows and Great Big Story videos.

“This is a great example of how Turner’s premium content can enhance the travel experience.”
