NetDriven Music in Your Hotel Room

BoomboxJust because your hotel doesn’t have an iPod station (yet), doesn’t mean you’ll be forced to listen to whatever the guests are doing in the next room. On Command Video Corporation, a provider of in-room interactive entertainment for hotel properties, has announced that it will begin delivering Instant Media Network’s new NetDriven music application. This system will provide patrons with the option to listen to 10,000 CD’s and 120,000 music tracks. I bet they even have Bat Out of Hell by Meatloaf.

I think this service will be embraced by business travelers with thirsty ears and high school kids throwing hotel parties alike. How do you get it? Through the TV. “On Command is pleased to have the largest music selection available via the television in hotel rooms,” said Tad Walden, senior VP of programming and marketing for On Command. “Millions of hotel guests have access to thousands of music artists simply by using the TV remote.

On Command and its distribution network services more than 800,000 guest rooms, reaching more than 300 million guests annually in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Spain. Properties serviced, among others, include: Accor, Adam’s Mark Hotels & Resorts, Fairmont, Four Seasons, Gaylord Hotels (Gaylord Palms, Gaylord Texan, Gaylord Opryland and Gaylord Hotel at Opryland), Hilton Hotels Corporation, Hyatt, Intercontinental Hotels Group (Inter-Continental, InterContinental Buckhead, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn), Loews, Marriott (Courtyard, Renaissance, Fairfield Inn and Residence Inn), New York Palace Hotel, Radisson, Ramada, Starwood Hotels & Resorts (Westin, Sheraton, W Hotels and Four Points), and Wyndham Hotels & Resorts.

I love it.
