Netflix and Hilton hotels agree ‘Connected Room’ deal

Netflix has partnered with Hilton to allow guests of the hotel chain to access the SVOD service on the TVs found in its ‘Connected Rooms’.

Guests can access their Netflix account by either logging-in on their hotel room TV or via the Hilton Honors app.

Hilton said that its Connected Room platform ensures a guest’s login information stays secure and clears automatically upon checkout, unless they choose to clear it sooner through the TV.

Hilton currently has more than 1,800 Connected Rooms, and plans to roll out the technology to tens of thousands of rooms in hundreds more hotels across the US in 2019 as well as the first non-US locations.

“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 for Netflix.

Hilton’s executive vice president and chief information and digital officer, Noelle Eder, added: “We know our guests want to feel connected while traveling, 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.”
