Hotel TV Compared to Consumer TV

You may ask, why choose hotel TVs at all? Why not just use standard consumer sets instead?

The answer is easy: to give you a significant commercial advantage.

Reduced costs, increased income..
Through the various in-built energy-saving features, you can save many thousands of pounds in running costs over the lifetime of hotel TVs.

Time saved..

Hotel TV`s are specially designed to easily clone the settings from one TV to all others in your hotel, even remotely from any location. With standard TVs you can’t – each one has to be programmed individually, each time you need to reconfigure your channels. The difference in time and effort can be enormous.


Manufacturers have taken a number of measures to minimise potential problems. For example, built-in volume limitation so as not to disturb guests in adjoining rooms. Menu locking, which ensures that the settings you have programmed into the TV remain the way they should. More secure Smart TV avoiding disturbance from sharing features and allowing hotels to tailor and manage their own offering. And special remote controls which don’t allow guests to remove the batteries.


With hotel TVs it’s possible to display a welcoming message for guests in the room. You can also show a special start-up channel with relevant information about your hotel and the surrounding area through video or images and text. Plus on some higher specification models you can add a clock display.

Professional service..
