DSC_0825 (1)Hyatt Hotels announced it will begin to offer guests the ability to stream content from apps on their smartphones and tablets to the in-room television.

Guests will be able to have the same experience they have while on the go with their phones or at home with thousands of apps, be it Netflix, Hulu, Sling TV, or YouTube thanks to technology Hyatt is building into its World of Hyatt app that will connect to a Chromecast digital media player connected to the room’s TV at participating hotels. The feature is already available at 14 properties including the Hyatt Centric French Quarter and the Hyatt Regency New Orleans.

“Today’s traveler often has one or more streaming subscriptions, and now they can view their favorite content on the big screen when they’re on the road, too,” said Debbie Goetz, the hotelier’s senior vice president for corporate marketing.

The new feature will also support photos, personal videos, and presentations – virtually anything that can be displayed on a personal electronic device. Hyatt is using technology from Staycast to power the system.
