Hilton has announced a new integration with iHeartRadio to allow guests to stream radio stations, playlists, and podcasts directly from their TVs through Hilton’s high-tech Connected Room guest technology platform. Travelers can use either their Hilton Honors app or the in-room remote to access the content on their guestroom TV.
“We heard our guests loud and clear when they said they wanted the ability to stream music in their guestrooms, so we’re excited to bring this to life in collaboration with iHeartRadio,” said Noelle Eder, Executive VP and Chief Information and Digital Officer for Hilton. “This addition to Connected Room is just another way we’re making travelers feel at home by giving them access to their favorite content and enjoying custom, curated playlists for any occasion or mood.”
As a special benefit to Hilton guests, iHeartRadio is free and no signup is required. Guests need only to open the app on their TV and press “play.”
“We are excited to join forces with Hilton, a leader in the hospitality industry, to provide a superior music experience for travelers,” said Michele Laven, President of Strategic Partnerships for iHeartMedia. “We look forward to helping enhance the guest’s stay by giving them the companionship of our live radio stations as well as quick and easy access to iHeartRadio’s massive catalog of music playlists, podcasts, and more.”
