    Marriott Hotels will soon provide access to streaming Netflix on hotel room TVs.

    The company announced this week that its hotel room guests will be able to log in to their Netflix accounts or sign up on room TVs.

    It’s the first hotel chain to offer the streaming service to guests and could signal a shift of the hospitality’s industry into the digital age.

    “Because consumers are choosing to take their streaming content with them when they travel, Marriott Hotels is making the industry’s first rollout of Netflix a priority,” Matthew Carroll, vice president of brand management, said in a news release.

    Netflix is available at six Marriott locations in New York; San Jose; Princeton, New Jersey; Newport, Rhode Island; Dallas; and Bethesda, Maryland.

    The company plans to expand the Netflix feature this summer to hotels in Anaheim, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Atlanta.

    One-hundred of its properties will offer Netflix by the end of the year and nearly all of the hotels will have the feature by the end of 2016, the company stated in the news release.
