It’s common to find Netflix on hotel room TVs, since the app is pre-installed and guests can simply log in to get their fix. Hilton and Netflix are taking the experience one step further by teaming up for in-room streaming through the hotel giant’s own Hilton Honors mobile app. Hilton’s guests will be able to log into their Netflix accounts and control streaming using the app now.
The companies will be offering the experience in Hilton’s Connected Rooms at first. The hotel chain introduced this concept for guest rooms in its properties back in December. In a Connected Room, you will be able to control the room’s temperature, lighting, and personalize TV channels with the Hilton Honors mobile app. Sounds pretty sweet to me.
Hilton already has a similar deal with Showtime which allows guests to access Showtime’s content for free through the app. When it comes to Netflix, users will be able to log into their own account using the Hilton app and then choose what they want to stream on the TV. Since they will be signing into their own account, they will also be able to access their saved list of content, pick up where they left off watching and get personalized recommendations.
