Netflix Is Coming To More Hotels Near You

Who wouldn’t want to catch up on a few episodes of House of Cards or Stranger Things while biding time in your hotel room waiting out your latest business trip? A new partnership between Netflix and in-room entertainment platform Enseo means chances are better that you’ll be able to do just that.

Netflix and Enseo announced an agreement on Wednesday that expands the platform’s rights to distribute the streaming application to hundreds of more hotels around the world.

While the two companies have worked together in the past, the expanded agreement allows Enseo to offer Netflix to any hotel under a contract in any country worldwide where Netflix is available.

This means that Enseo, which already offers the app in over 300 hotels in the U.S., can provide Netflix access to hotels that are beyond those listed on its pre-approved list of brands.

Through the Enseo system, hotel guests can to log in to their Netflix accounts directly from their room TVs. Watching TV shows or movies through the service in-room does not incur any internet charges and guests’ login information is deleted upon checkout.

“Our partnership with Enseo brings Netflix members a high quality viewing experience on their hotel room TV,” Paul Perryman, Director Business Development at Netflix, said in a statement. “Through our expanded agreement, now more hotels in more countries will be able to provide guests access to their favorite Netflix TV shows and movies on the in-room television, making their hotel room feel more like home.”
