Spectrum Enterprise, a part of Charter Communications, Inc., announced the launch of TV Streaming Access for Healthcare and for Hospitality organizations, a new feature of Spectrum Enterprise video service designed to enhance patient and guest experiences. In addition to using in-room TVs, individuals can watch programming from an app or browser on their personal mobile devices, tablets and computers while connected to the Wi-Fi network in a healthcare facility or on a hotel property.
Spectrum Enterprise TV Streaming Access (TVSA) offers over 200 live TV channels featuring entertainment, news, sports, Spanish-language and international programming in addition to a large on-demand library of movies and shows.
“TV Streaming Access has the entertainment needs of both healthcare patients and hotel guests in mind,” said Raj Mukherji, Vice President of Vertical Market Sales, Spectrum Enterprise. “Patients can spend significant time at a healthcare facility and having access to diverse programming through an easy-to-use format can provide a welcome distraction. The breadth of TVSA content also creates a more satisfactory experience for hotel guests who are looking for entertainment options that meet what they can access on their home video services.”
An interactive guide on TVSA allows individuals to find content quickly using keyword search, filters and sorting options to create a personalized guide menu. Shows or movies started on the in-room TV can continue to be watched throughout the healthcare facility or the hotel on personal devices. In addition, a patient’s visitors or hotel guests in the same party can watch different programming simultaneously, leading to an enhanced entertainment experience.
TVSA is a cost-saving and reliable solution for facility managers. There is no expensive client-owned equipment to purchase and maintain, and, unlike satellite-delivered content, Spectrum Enterprise programming is not as susceptible to weather-related disruptions.
