RadioWeb seals hotel radio deal

RadioWeb Communications has added the full capabilities of “Hotel World Radio” from CPTV LLC to its hosted on-line internet audio service for the hospitality markets. CPTV brings over 20 years of hospitality industry in-room entertainment expertise to RadioWeb’s service. “Hotel World Radio” includes the most comprehensive catalogue of internet audio broadcast sources, with over 10,000 station streams and 5,000+ podcasts available to guests and residents in top-tier hotels, resorts and retirement communities in a footprint once occupied by a clock radio!

“We’re thrilled to team with CPTV in delivering the first revolutionary change in a hotel room since the arrival of cable TV,” said RadioWeb President Rhos B. Dyke. “We have tested our service in some of the most demanding hospitality service markets, and know that `Hotel World Radio’ will more than exceed our requirements, and more importantly, client expectations. Consumers will love it.”

Alex Dickman, managing partner for CPTV, added: “RadioWeb is an ideal partner for us. They are focused in a space perfectly suited for our products, servicing consumers far from home, and hungry for entertainment, news, sports and content not available in a conventional TV service. They deliver on our promise to make everyone feel closer to home.”
