LCD display on the train

LCD display on the train, Tokyo, Japan
Above each door of Yamanote line, loop line running in the middle of Tokyo, are installed two LCD displays. One show us the information on the train situation and the other gives us Commercial Message, Weather info, some small news about stock, sports, fortune-telling and more.

I wish we could watch some sports live on the display

Cool :) And would be even cooler with sports - superb idea :)

We (at Prague) have only one projector at the subway stations with text news. But this is much much better.

That's great. Japan has an incredible train system. I wish more American cities did also so we could leave our cars at home.

This is a very good idea! We do not have trains in my city, just buses. The buses don't have anything like these LCD screens :(

Thanks for the comments:-))
If we could watch sport live on the display, many people would drink beer on the train and anybody would not like to get off the train.

I apologize for 'Train English' -- its my company that makes them. (Although since they started using Joanna-sensei, it isn't so bad as the early ones.)

I watch the screens on the Toyoko line mostly; I feel like I could tell you every single theater production currently on in Tokyo based on their five minute loops of footage.
