Many hotels offer guests Netflix, but Hilton has taken it a step further. The chain has partnered with Netflix to let guests stream from their rooms on their own accounts in Hilton Connected Rooms. Guests will also be able to control the temperature, light, TV and more from their mobile device or TV remote.
It works through the Hilton Honors app, where guests can sign and add Netflix and other streaming media providers to their “favourites” list for easy access.
“We know our guests want to feel connected while travelling, just as they do at home, so we’re giving them seamless access to their favourite Netflix shows, films and specials while on the road,” said Noelle Eder, executive vice president and chief information and digital officer for Hilton.
Guests without Netflix accounts will be able to sign up and start watching while existing members will be about to continue from where they left off.
“This partnership extends our commitment to enabling our members to watch their favourite Netflix series, movies and specials wherever and whenever they want, and we’re thrilled to be bringing our service to Hilton guests all over the world,” said Bill Holmes, head of business development, Netflix.
Hilton currently has more than 1,800 Connected Rooms and plans to roll the technology out across tens of thousands of rooms across the world in 2019.
