AT&T is teaming up with Host Hotels & Resorts and GuestTek in a multiyear relationship to bring DirecTV shows, movies and more to Marriott hotel rooms owned by Host. Guests at some Marriott hotels in the U.S. that are owned by Host are already installed, while the remaining rooms will be added through the second quarter of 2016.
"Hoteliers are looking to connect their customers to an integrated video and broadband solution that can grow as needed, is cost effective and saves energy,” said Eric Boyer, senior vice president, AT&T GigaPower, Commercial and Connected Communities. “We’ve worked with GuestTek to deliver a tailored experience. It gives guests access to the latest shows and movies while meeting Host’s expectations and Marriott’s national brand standards. Guests win when they can watch what they want directly on the hotel room HDTV.”
Working with DirecTV , GuestTek can meet guests’ expectations now and into the future with its OneView Managed Video Platform. The solution offers hotel guests premium features including a branded welcome screen, a fully interactive program guide, access to internet content and more.
