World Cinema has partnered with Showtime for distribution sales of the Showtime hotel app, included with the WorldVue platform. Through the app, hotels are now able to provide free access to the Showtime service, which includes an extensive library of original series, blockbuster hit movies, comedy programming, documentaries and more, on the in-room televisions.
 
Previously, streaming and casting in a hotel room required guests to pair a personal device or enter passwords with a TV remote. With the Showtime hotel app, included with most WorldVue platform packages by World Cinema, guests can click and watch premium entertainment without a log-in or password.
 
“Since our founding, World Cinema has been driving the in-room entertainment evolution in the hospitality industry, and guest room entertainment definitely comes of age with the no-hassle Showtime Hotel App," said Clinton Fox, SVP of sales and marketing for World Cinema, in a statement.
 
Last year World Cinema unveiled STB-5500 Ultra HD set top box with WorldVue. The box empowers hotel guests to cast video from their smartphones, watch personalized streaming apps on their hotel TV screens, or enjoy live TV and use a host of additional smart apps in up to 4K quality. The box also features space for additional hardware and upgrades such as a cable modem for IP-over-coax installations. The STB-5500 offers future capability to improve Wi-Fi connectivity for guests by acting as a soft access point for personal devices.
