C&W launches next-gen interactive TV

The new interactive TV solution can be deployed across any type of infrastructure, eliminating the need to reinvest in recabling or renovations.

C&W Business launched next-generation hospitality interactive TV. The solution gives hoteliers improved and differentiated services with a larger selection of high-definition channels, updated channel line-ups (including up to 80 channels) and an easy-to-use program guide to help guests find their favorite TV channel or discover specific hotel information such as restaurants, bars and local attractions, from their TV.

The new hospitality interactive TV solution does not require upgrades to existing infrastructure. It doesn't matter what type of wiring the hotel is using—the TV solution can be deployed across any type of infrastructure, eliminating the need to reinvest in recabling or shut down rooms for time-consuming renovations.

There are two basic packages available to hotel and resort operators—C&W TV Lite (29 channels) and C&W TV Plus (67 channels), as well as a range of add-on packs including movie pass, kids pass, global news pass, sports pass and Fox pass. One of the most significant benefits for hoteliers, though, will be the ability to create a dedicated hotel channel that allows for the seamless communication of a variety of offsite and onsite programs to their guests. This unique differentiator is made possible by the smooth integration of our Digital Signage and Interactive TV Solutions.

Additionally, the solution comes with 24/7/365 proactive monitoring and support by a team of cable and wireless-technology experts, which allows them to remotely troubleshoot any potential issues.

"We continue to innovate and invest in leading-edge technology so that we can provide products and services to enable hotels in the region to enhance their guests' experiences and attract more customers allowing them to compete in the global tourism sector," said Garfield Sinclair, C&W Communications' president of its Caribbean business, in a statement. "With more channels, in HD, higher-quality services and enhanced monitoring capabilities, this IPTV solution will help hotels to greatly differentiate their proposition.”
