Netflix will soon be a part of your hotel experience if you happen to be staying at a Marriott.
Part of the news that helped the streaming entertainment service’s stock rise was the news that it had finalized a deal with Marriott International Inc. to have Netflix available for 100 of its 300 total hotel properties within the United States by the end of the year, with the rest receiving access by the end of 2016.
Guests who arrive for a stay at a Marriott hotel will have the choice of signing up for Netflix then and there, or, if they’re already current subscribers, they can log in using the application on the Internet-connected televisions in their suites.
The new development is a direct result of testing that was initiated by both companies earlier this year at eight select properties within the hotel chain.
