Sonifi Solutions has partnered with HoneyBadger Technologies to expand the global availability of its guest streaming product, Staycast powered by Google Chromecast. HoneyBadger's systems are found in more than 10,000 rooms across Australia, Fiji and Samoa and the company will be able to implement solutions for Sonifi throughout the South Pacific region.

Staycast seamlessly connects to a hotel’s existing TV infrastructure allowing guests to view their own content to the in-room TV. Guests do not have to enter any app credentials or personal information over the television because they use their own devices to access their favorite apps such as Netflix, BBC iPlayer, YouTube, and 1000+ more.

HoneyBadger has already installed Staycast at the West Hotel Sydney, Curio Collection by Hilton.
