Netflix strikes a deal with Enseo to offer its service in hotels

Netflix strikes a deal with Enseo to offer its service in hotels.

Netflix and Enseo signed an agreement expanding Enseo’s rights to now distribute the Netflix application on select Enseo devices to any hotel under a specific contract with Enseo in any country where the Netflix service is available.

"Our partnership with Enseo brings Netflix members a high quality viewing experience on their hotel room TV," said Paul Perryman, director business development at Netflix. "Through our expanded agreement, now more hotels in more countries will be able to provide guests access to their favorite Netflix TV shows and movies on the in-room television, making their hotel room feel more like home."

In 2014, Enseo was the first hospitality integrator to license and deploy the Netflix application in hotels. Backed by a world-class platform of powerful hardware, flexible software, and technology-based services, Enseo has designed a platform that continues to evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of hotel brands, hotel owners, and most importantly, the guest.

Guests staying in hotels powered by such Enseo devices will be able to subscribe to Netflix or sign into their existing accounts simply by accessing the Netflix application on the guest room TV via a Netflix logo on the on-screen TV menu, or a Netflix-branded button on the TV remote control. In addition, guests will not be required to pay in-room Internet fees in order to access the Netflix application on the Enseo device. When the guest checks out, their Netflix user credentials will be automatically removed from the device.

Enseo’s Room Operating Center powers guest experiences including streaming Over-The-Top applications like Netflix, as well as enabling guests to listen to their own music using Enseo’s Bluetooth audio. Enseo provides guests the best WiFi service with Enseo’s HSIA and HomeAwayFromHome personal area networks.

Enseo’s advanced data analytics gathered data from several million occupied room nights this year proves Netflix is the guest’s favorite channel in all 19 hotel brands deployed today. This was consistent across all demographics from luxury guests to conference attendees and the ever elusive millennial traveler.
