Being away from home for months at end can be hard however being able to get a regular feed of news from your homeland can certainly help ease the homesickness.
Andy Cook, V.Group’s global crew operations director explains how we are helping our seafarers connect with home: “We subscribe to a daily NEWSlink service, delivered by KVH Media Group. The news is filtered both on country and interest areas, which essentially means our seafarers get all the latest news from home and more.”
In addition to regular newsfeeds we have the opportunity to provide additional special interest news and from today our crew will also receive all the latest from the Rio Olympics along with their regular newsfeeds. Previous special issues have included football events as well as major political events.
