Netflix subscribers staying at Marriott hotels in the US will soon be able to log in to their Netflix accounts just like at home. The hotel chain says it's created an "adapted" version of the Netflix app that will be available via its internet-connected TVs. Guests simply log in once at the beginning of their stay, and their credentials are wiped clean when they check out. (Guests who aren't already paying for Netflix can sign up for a free 30-day trial from the app or buy a full subscription.)
It was rumored back in January that Marriott was introducing this service, but the hotel chain has now confirmed it. The service is only currently available at six locations with a further six being added this summer. Marriott says it plans to roll out the Netflix app to 100 properties by the end of 2015, and to "nearly all" of its 300 US hotels by the end of next year. The service comes at no extra cost, and Marriott says that even international travelers will be able to use their Netflix subscriptions in the US.
