The Bungalows Key Largo, a luxury all-inclusive resort located in the Florida Keys, has implemented the BeyondTV entertainment casting solution from Hotel Internet Services. Set to open on Dec. 19, the adults-only resort recognized a need to ensure full guest satisfaction by catering to their entertainment preferences for secure access to streamed and personalized online content.

With BeyondTV, guests are able to leverage guestroom televisions to access popular content streaming and social media apps, including Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Pandora, ESPN, YouTube and Facebook. Leveraging its patented data-privacy technology, BeyondTV safeguards guest information with features that include automatically erasing all usage data and browsing history upon check-out. Guests also are able to delete their personal data at any time during their stay with a push of a remote control button. Another way for guests to watch the content they desire is with BeyondTV's GuesCast, which allows guests to cast such content from their personal device to the TV without ever having to input sensitive login information.

With hotel services needing to keep pace with evolving guest preferences and behaviors at a faster rate than ever before, BeyondTV provides hoteliers with the ability to implement additional features and functionalities in stages. This includes being equipped with voice control functionality via integration with Amazon's Alexa, allowing guests to make requests or control amenities such as the television, lighting and thermostats using simple voice commands.
