In case you missed the announcement last month, Marriott is bringing Netflix to guest room televisions at select US hotels. Instead of having to use your iPad, iPhone, or tablet, Marriott will utilize an app installed on their in-room HDTVs which will allow current Netflix members to sign into their account or new members to create an account. Users will only have to login once per stay and they will be automatically signed out upon check-out.
“Our collaboration with Netflix responds to changing consumer preferences in the way our guests access and watch content, while recognizing the leading role Netflix is playing in driving this transformation,“ said Matthew Carroll, vice president brand management, Marriott Hotels. “Because consumers are choosing to take their streaming content with them when they travel, Marriott Hotels is making the industry’s first rollout of Netflix a priority.”
With this agreement, Marriott Hotels is the first hotel brand authorized to offer guests direct access to their Netflix accounts as part of its guest room entertainment offering. Netflix is currently available at six properties, with six more launching this summer. The brand plans to expand Netflix to 100 of its properties by the end of 2015, and to nearly all of its more than 300 properties in the U.S. by the end of 2016.
