Motel 6 selects DISH's smartbox for in-room entertainment

Motel 6, World Cinema, and DISH Network LLC have completed a multiyear agreement through which DISH and World Cinema will deliver HD satellite TV service and high-speed Internet access to the motel chain’s more than 500 corporately owned and operated properties.
 
“Our goal is to deliver the best possible in-room experience, and the smartbox solution has provided that capability,” said Tom Lusk, vice president of procurement at Motel 6.  “We will now be able to provide HD quality video to all guests while also lowering our environmental impact through lower energy consumption.”
 
DISH’s smartbox features the flexibility to support a custom combination of legacy analog and HD channels at the same property, while easily reconfigured to meet future expansion and technology needs. By enabling new feature downloads via satellite, smartbox can support the latest upgrades without the need for new equipment.
