While home TV tech keeps marching on, hotel TVs seem hopelessly behind: They feature few channels, no on-screen menus and lots of other outdated annoyances. So what’s the problem?
It’s not just you. Hotel TV systems are a constant pain point for frequent travelers. A partial checklist of complaints I’ve heard (and, frankly, voiced): There is rarely an interactive onscreen channel guide, every time the TV is turned on it resets to an information channel (with the volume jacked up), and it can take a second or more for the TV to change from one channel to the other.
