HBO used to be a big advertised selling point for many hotels. However, since HBO came to fruition, many other premium services have as well. They too have upped the television game with cutting edge shows. Take Showtime for example. From Weeds to Dexter to Shameless, Showtime has given viewers valuable entertainment for almost 20 years. Now, they are being given the HBO treatment in hotels. At least, that’s the case for some Hilton hotels.
If you are staying in a Hilton that boasts a high-tech guest room, you are in luck. Premium streaming is available for those who use their mobile phones as a remote to control the features of the room. Part of this plan is complimentary Showtime streaming. This partnership is a further expansion of the Connected Room Technology Hilton launched last year.
Chief Customer Officer at Hilton, Jon Witter, stated,
“Connected Room has set a new standard for the industry by giving our guests a travel experience where their room can be customized to their preferences, and also offers complimentary on demand access to Showtime service. The availability of in-app controls is the next step in allowing guests to manage all aspects of their stay from the palm of their hands.”
All of these services are done through the Hilton Honors app. With the app, you may:
- Control lighting
- Change temperature
- Stream television (including Showtime)
To get Showtime, no cable or streaming credentials are necessary. You just need to update the most up-to-date version of the Hilton Honors/Connected Room app.
