Internet protocol television (IPTV (News - Alert)) is everywhere. From corporate companies to private homes, IPTV is sweeping the entertainment arena with its state-of-the-art technology and new possibilities.
Taking these possibilities further, iBAHN has announced its selection by Omni Nashville Hotel in Nashville; according to the contract, iBAHN will be deploying IPTV services in the Omni Nashville Hotel.
iBAHN's IPTV solution will expand Omni Nashville Hotel’s channel offerings. Guests will have 44 high-definition channels on the in-room televisions and a 16-channel lineup in the fitness center. But they do not need to search for a remote to browse all these channels. They can simply download an app, available at the hotel, to their smartphones and control the TV from their smartphones.
This IPTV service also offers connected music services, which will allow guests to download music streams and other entertainment. Additionally, iBAHN's customizable platform enables the hotel to expand the Omni brand with the help of the television platform.
