Do you run a hotel or resort? While businesses in all industries can benefit from using IPTV, the benefits are particularly large for hotels, resorts and other accommodation businesses that need to provide entertainment and useful information to guests.
From movies on demand to local and international TV, IPTV lets you expand your hotel’s range of entertainment options. It can also be used to deliver important information about your hotel to guests, from facilities and dining options to transportation, nearby attractions and more.
You can even use IPTV to deliver content to your digital signage and displays, helping you show guests promotions and more.
Below, we’ve gone into more detail on the key ways in which hotels, resorts, and accommodation businesses can benefit from IPTV:
Deliver movies and TV shows on demand
Entertainment plays a huge role in the customer experience, and there’s no better way to offer a wide range of entertainment options to your guests than by using IPTV.
IPTV technology lets you display movies and TV shows on demand, letting your guests decide exactly what they’d like to watch when they want to watch it. Without having to worry about the scheduling of broadcast TV, your guests are free to consume content as they choose.
By offering a range of movies and enterprise TV shows for your guests, you can provide a higher quality experience that helps your accommodation business earn higher review scores and win back guests for a stronger retention rate.
You can also use IPTV as an additional source of revenue by offering content as an upsell to increase your business’s average earnings per booking.
Showcase your facilities, amenities and more
Does your hotel have an impressive swimming pool, fitness center, spa or other facilities you’d like guests to know about? IPTV is the perfect tool for showcasing your hotel’s amenities and attracting the attention of guests.
Using IPTV, you can automatically display information about your hotel facilities on TVs inside guest rooms and public areas, helping your guests learn more about your hotel and advertise your optional extras and upgrades.
Just like you can upsell content via IPTV, you can also market your additional services. From spas and care packages to guided tours and more, IPTV can be a great marketing platform for your hotel’s top optional extras.
Share useful information with your guests
Another great way to use IPTV is a way to inform your guests about nearby attractions and things to do. By broadcasting informational IPTV content, you can let guests know about your hotel’s nearest attractions and provide helpful directions and advice.
You can also use IPTV to teach your guests about transportation options, help them avoid the most common scams and problems in your city, share information about your local currency or convenient payment options (for international hotels) and more.
Instead of requiring your guests to reach brochures and other content, IPTV lets you put useful information right in front of your guests, letting them familiarize themselves with the area or city in a fraction of the usual amount of time and enhancing the customer experience.
Promote your city’s top attractions
What are your city’s top tourist attractions? From historical buildings to theme parks, museums and more, you can promote your city’s top tourist sights using IPTV to quickly give your guests an understanding of what they need to see while they’re in town.
IPTV gives your hotel or resorts its own tourism channel for showcasing specific attractions and tourists sights. You can display a photo slideshow or offer a more in-depth look at the sights you think are worth visiting via wireless video transmitter, all in beautiful HD.
If your hotel offers a tour service, you can market it via IPTV and encourage customers to make bookings, increasing your revenue per customer and providing a more convenient experience for your hotel guests.
