Hyatt Makes Channel-Surfing Even Easier for Guests
Hyatt has implemented the interactive “click and go” Program Guide (IPG) from Roomlinx, Inc., at several Hyatt properties, including Hyatt Regency New Orleans, Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center and soon in other full service Hyatt properties across U.S., Canada and Caribbean.
The Roomlinx IPG gives hotel guests a fast, easy way to access a full schedule of current and upcoming shows. Guests simply press the guide button on the remote or click the TV icon on the iTV screen to display the IPG. Navigating is just as easy with choices like page up, page down, auto scroll and rollover functionality to display program descriptions. Once a program has been selected, one click takes the guest directly to the show.
Roomlinx’s proprietary IPG technology offers two features that allow the guide to do the searching for the guest, creating even greater ease of use. The genre filter lets guest choose from a list of popular program genres including Movies, Sports, News and Family, to view the schedule of programs in that category. With the keyword search guests can drill down even further by entering a word like “baseball” or “food” in the search field and see all the programs with that word in the title or description.
