PPDS Philips Sells Half-a-Million Hotel TVs Already

2.14 PPDS

PPDS (aka: Philips Professional Displays) says it just sold its 500,000th Philips MediaSuite TV to a leading hotel group. With Chromecast built-in and Netflix-ready entertainment solution reached the half-a-million milestone during ISE 2024 in Barcelona this month, less than five years since the series was first introduced.

Said to have exceeded PPDS’ own internal targets, Philips MediaSuite TVs (available in models sized from 19”-75”) have been designed explicitly to put guests in control of their viewing experiences. Today, PPDS has regional and international supplier agreements with Accor, B&B Hotels, Best Western, Choice, Four Seasons, IHG, Louvre, Marriott, Radisson, and Wyndham, to name just a few.

Offering a transition between home and the hotel room, Philips MediaSuite remains the only hospitality TV to feature Chromecast built-in, with access to the Google Play store and Netflix ready functionality. Guests can access and cast their content from their preferred accounts (including Apple TV+, DAZN, Disney+, Prime, YouTube, and more) directly onto the TV using their own personal device – whatever their mobile operating system – as they would at home, with no additional wires, dongles, or reoccurring equipment fees for the hotel.

Jeroen Verhaeghe, Global Business Development Director for Hospitality at PPDS commented: “Philips MediaSuite was inspired by personal experience. Hotel TVs had lost their appeal. They simply weren’t keeping pace with modern-day viewing habits, forcing guests to watch their content through their mobile devices rather than on the big screen. That is certainly not the case in the half million plus rooms now hosting Philips MediaSuite, bringing home-from-home entertainment options streaming in for guests, reforming perceptions of hotel TVs, and creating new possibilities and efficiencies for hotels, too.”
