Doubletree taps Tivus for in-room HD IPTV solution in $1.2M deal

Technology entertainment services company Tivus, which is based in Omaha, Nebraska, has landed a $1.2 million contract for in-room high-definition IPTV from the Omaha Doubletree Hotel & Executive Meeting Center Downtown.

The five-year deal provides the Doubletree with Tivus' in-room HD IPTV entertainment solution for up to 450 rooms, and gives guests the option of free and premium programming from around the world, games, and TV access to property amenities, goods, and services; and, all in the language of their choice.

The hotel investigated multiple in-room HD entertainment options while searching to replace its existing legacy entertainment system, said Anthony Spears, GM of the hotel said. "We were excited to discover a robust new solution provider right in our own backyard."

Spears said the hotel was attracted to the Tivus solution by, among other features, its "novel, personalized, and user-friendly features." Tivus also provides the Doubletree with a revenue stream through its unique-to-the-industry ad-revenue sharing feature.

Tivus uses onsite hardware and software, including flat-screen televisions, to give customers a turnkey guest entertainment solution. Tivus' IPTV hotel entertainment system is a complete, multifaceted entertainment platform that, for the first time in the industry, generates previously untapped revenues to the hotel through commercial spots, advertisements of local tourist services, and hotel promotions, etc.
