News > Otrum partners with Airtime
Posted on 1st August 2019
Otrum is pleased to announce that Airtime, a cloud-based movie streaming app from Techlive, will be embedded as standard and at no extra cost in all Otrum interactive solutions. This exclusive opportunity is available to all existing and new Otrum IPTV customers, provided that their interactive solution is operating on a compatible Smart TV.
Airtime offers guests a rich content library with movies from major Hollywood studios, available weeks before they are launched via other consumer services. For the guest, Airtime is simple – choose a movie, pay with a credit card (via a secure PCI-DSS compliant payment gateway), then relax whilst the movie is streamed directly to the in-room TV.
Hoteliers benefit greatly from using Airtime as an embedded option with Otrum; no additional subscription costs, no operational costs and no additional hardware. Should a hotel wish to provide free to guest movies, this licence option can be purchased from local Otrum Partners. Airtime movies are available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, with subtitles in Chinese, Arabic, Portuguese and Turkish and are in the early window ahead of domestic streaming services.
Mr. Tim Worrall, Managing Director of Techlive, comments “Airtime is in widespread distribution today, and by aligning forces with Otrum, we expect our room base to grow even faster. The simplicity of Airtime for the hotelier cannot be understated – all logistics are handled online by Techlive, and a seamless experience is delivered to the guest. Airtime works brilliantly with Otrum and has been very well received by hotels and their guests.”
Mr. Nigel Bateson, EVP of Otrum, states “We are very excited to be able to provide the Airtime app as a standard feature, and we expect this to be an attractive add-on to Otrum interactive solutions. In-room content continues to be a high-priority for many, and hoteliers can now take a hands-off approach by use of the Airtime app. As a streaming service, this requires no resources from the hotel and any support needs are directly handled by Techlive.”
For those hotels wishing to have movie services hosted on-site, Otrum continues to provide traditional VOD solutions. Please contact your local Otrum Partner for more information.
