Skift Take

Not a bad first step towards making guests feel like they're really at home.

Marriott International Inc. says its flagship hotel unit will offer guests access to Netflix Inc.’s streaming-video service on TVs in its guest rooms.

Select hotels will allow guests to use Netflix by signing into their existing accounts through the Netflix app on the Internet-connected televisions. Guests can also sign up for a new subscription if they don’t already have one.

Marriott says it is the first hotel brand to allow guests direct access to Netflix.

The company says Netflix is currently available at six properties, with six more launching this summer. It plans to expand Netflix to 100 properties by the end of 2015, and to nearly all of its more than 300 U.S. properties by the end of 2016.
