Marriott Announces Streaming Deal with Netflix

On the road one-third of the year, you can often find me at night watching the latest House of Cards or Boardwalk Empire episodes on my laptop. Rarely do I find something worthwhile to watch on the hotel television. That’s why I was excited to hear last month that Marriott has signed an agreement with Netflix that will allow guests to access their accounts via Internet-connected TVs. Already at a half-dozen Marriott properties, the company hopes to roll out this option at 100 of their American locales by the end of the year. 

I’m off next week, back the week of July 20th when I’ll be blogging and tweeting live from location from the 4 huts in the emerging Maine Huts & Trails System. Please stay tuned for an in-depth look at the only hut-to-hut system in America where you have the rare chance to hike, mountain bike, and paddle between huts. In the meantime, enjoy the warm weather and keep active.
