The Info Channel of Guestfriend: a new look for the hotel TV

The television, together with the smartphone, occupies the first place of the most used devices in 2020. More than 90 % of Germans switch it on at home and on holiday to relax*. Therefore, make sure to use the TV system in your accommodation. We will show you how to give your offers more visibility with your own hotel TV and what is new – on the info channel of Guestfriend.

Why should hosts rely on a own info channel for their TV system?

Guests want to be well looked after all round. This includes personal tips for the stay, interesting facts about the offers in the hotel and often direct contact. Getting all this under one roof is not easy, especially in times of the Corona pandemic!

The solution: Televisions and monitors attract attention and provide comprehensive infotainment and targeted marketing at busy locations. Whether in the entrance area, restaurant, fitness or common room: events, news and services are seen despite distance and hygiene rules. Contactless and digital, our hotel TV provides simple support for the personal care of your guests.

What content should not be missing on your own TV channel?

The info channel helps hotels, guesthouses, holiday flats, campsites, homes and even clinics to inform, communicate and sell. Accordingly, everything you want to communicate to your guests and visitors will find its place.

The Info Channel of Guestfriend

What functions are behind the new TV software?

  • Practical building blocks: Without extensive research, you can use ready-made elements that update automatically, such as weather, time and date.

  • Sensible synergies: News and events stored in the Guestfriend editorial system can be played out simultaneously in the Digital Guest Directory, the Hotel Newspaper and via the Info Channel without additional effort.
  • No hardware costs: Use your existing monitors, TVs or distribution system with HDMI input and Internet access.
  • Easy installation: We supply the appropriate technology and undertake maintenance and technical updates completely free of charge.
