Turku, Finland, 20nd of April, 2021 - We are delighted to announce that Netflix – the world’s leading streaming entertainment service – can now be embedded into the Hibox Smartroom offering.
We are bringing Netflix to all Smartroom customers by making it available in both our hospitality TV solution and in our multi-screen solution for healthcare, giving both hotels and healthcare providers the ability to let their customers use their personal Netflix subscriptions on hospitality TVs.
Additionally, we have deployed a new user interface to ensure an intuitive user experience in terms of the many services available in our TV system, as well as enjoying one's favorite shows and movies in the Netflix TV app.
“It is key for our customers to be able to offer their guests and patients a true "home away from home" experience, and we are very excited about this new development. By enabling the largest streaming service in the world on the Smartroom platform, our customers will finally be able to offer their guests exactly what they are asking for. Hibox is committed to developing new functionality and services in our Smartroom product, and this was a very important step forward for us” said Staffan Granholm, CEO at Hibox Systems.
