Look out for more bright video screens on the London Underground, this time above escalators.
There’s long been static advertising panels above escalators at some stations, but ExterionMedia have now developed a video equivalent.
According to ExterionMedia, the new 15sqm HD screen is four times more engaging/annoying (delete depending on preference) than the old static posters.
The advertising company will be rolling out Digital Gateways across five more stations on London Underground including London Bridge, Liverpool Street, King’s Cross St Pancras, Waterloo and Charing Cross during the rest of this year.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
