Another type of Netflix (and GoPro, and Hulu, and Pandora) trial

Marriott, following a PR disaster in which it briefly blocked personal wifi hotspots, strives to win public favor once more by introducing access to Netflix, GoPro, Hulu, and Pandora at select properties. There’s a catch, though – guests must already have a subscription to some of these services.

In a pilot program at eight locations, Marriott guests will be able to stream content from Netflix, Hulu, and Pandora through the rooms’ high-definition TVs.

Guests will explore their inner Spielberg at 17 Latin American and Caribbean resorts and hotels – here, visitors will receive access to GoPro HERO4 cameras to document their adventures. The hotel brand encourages guests to share their creations on social media using the hashtags #GoPro, #travelbrilliantly and #viajegenia, with a chance to be featured on Marriott’s Travel Brilliantly website.
