It’s common to find Netflix on hotel room TVs, the app is pre-installed and guests can simply log in. Hilton and Netflix are taking this experience one step further by teaming up for in-room streaming through the hotel giant’s own Hilton Honors mobile app. Hilton’s guests will be able to log into their Netflix accounts and control streaming using the app.

The companies will be offering this experience in Hilton’s Connected Rooms initially. The hotel chain introduced this new concept for guest rooms in its properties back in December. Guests in a Connected Room will be able to control the room’s temperature, lighting, and personalize TV channels with the Hilton Honors mobile app.

This might be Hilton’s first deal with Netflix on this but it’s not the first time that it’s offering an experience like this. It already has a similar deal with Showtime which enables guests to access Showtime’s content for free through the app.

For Netflix, users will be able to log into their own account using the Hilton app and then decide what they want to stream on their room’s TV. Since they will be signing into their own account and not some custom version, they will also be able to access their saved list of content, pick up where they left off watching, and get personalized recommendations.

Hilton has over 1,800 of these rooms in its properties currently and will be rolling out the technology to “tens of thousands” of rooms across the U.S. and internationally.
