DIRECTV BUSINESS SOLUTIONS is the creator of the Advanced Entertainment Platform (AEP), which is the premier customizable hospitality platform enabling linear and OTT content. The content is controlled via the cloud that provides television service to hotel rooms across the United States. Netflix has been added to the platform, effective immediately.
The addition of Netflix to AEP continues DIRECTV BUSINESS SOLUTIONS commitment to delivering the most content to hotel guests in the most seamless way possible. Netflix adds an incredible library of content to an already-robust offering at no additional cost to guests with an existing Netflix account.
Earlier this year, DIRECTV BUSINESS SOLUTIONS announced they would provide AEP hardware to hotels free of charge and reduce the per room price of the digital platform itself by more than 10 percent.
“Content is king, whether customers are enjoying it their own homes or in a hotel room,” said Doug Eichler, Senior Vice President, DIRECTV BUSINESS SOLUTIONS. “Keeping that in mind, the cost of entry should not be a barrier to an enjoyable experience, no matter where you are.”
Other traditional content providers, including Showtime®, Hallmark, Music Choice®, and an On Demand library consisting more than 10,000 hours of content available from major programmers were already integrated into the AEP.
