LodgeNet Expanding In-Room Entertainment

  The Entertainment Software Association reports that more than 239 million
computer and video games were sold to American households last year, and
that computer and video games are played by one out of every two Americans
age six and older. LodgeNet Entertainment Corporation , has introduced a
new service that expands the range of in-room entertainment options for
this massive audience and the hoteliers who serve them.
LodgeNet, the world’s largest provider of broadband interactive television
services to the hospitality industry, announced that its TV GameRoom(SM)
service is now available in hotels across the United States. “Because of
the robust, advanced design of our digital platform, hotels installed with
our sigNETure TV(SM) marketing and entertainment system can offer games of
interest to young guests as well as adult travelers,” said Steven D.
Truckenmiller, Senior Vice President Programming & Content Management for
LodgeNet.

“With TV GameRoom and our Nintendo(R) game service, we have the
flexibility to offer in-room game packages aligned with each hotel’s
specific guest demographics and operational patterns,” Truckenmiller
continued. “For example, hotels without a high concentration of younger
guests can offer games without keeping a dedicated controller in the room.”

TV GameRoom offers guests of all ages a variety of familiar games that are
optimized for television and can be played using the LodgeNet remote
control. Guests pay for a block of time, during which they can play as
many games as they wish. Play time that is not used in the initial session
is saved for the guest to use later in his or her stay. Some of the games
are stored on an on- site digital server while others are offered through
LodgeNet’s TV Internet platform, providing opportunities for future
development of multi-player games and/or chain-specific game-points
accrual and rewards programs. LodgeNet is providing the games under
long-term licensing agreements with http://www.n2digital.tv/ and Zone4Play
(ZFPI.OB).
