Netflix, Hulu Test In-Hotel Streaming With Marriott
Both Netflix, which has a substantial operation in Los Angeles, and Los Angeles-based Hulu are both considering an expansion into the hotel entertainment market, in a test with Marriott International, according to a report this morning. According to Bloomberg, Marriott is in a test which lets guests access Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, and other streaming media services through their televisions. The service has apparently rolled out across eight hotels, in a bid to attract hotel users to on-demand programming from those streaming media providers.
