Re: Choice Hotels and Cable
That is so true. Prices are still on higher side. Once it hits a balance at a more reasonable number then we will see more people go for it.

Re: Choice Hotels and Cable
Choosing your own, is most likely the way things will progress as competition for customers increases and content available increases wildly, making a more customer driven market for the first time in decades. Even competion from other countries and their providers like China Telecom is making big changes in the industry.

Re: Choice Hotels and Cable
It's interesting how cable is able to get these deals when traditionally, hotels preferred ISPs that weren't regional so they had consistent providers across the country.

Re: Choice Hotels and Cable
I know, Cable no longer is an excitement for any. I think very few these days have cable connections these days. I was in a family vacation at a resort this past weekend and we were just playing our own content to the TV.

Re: Choice Hotels and Cable
The stuff on cable is mostly pretty horrid, anyway. It is no attraction to me to see that cable TV is available for free. I can read my journal articles, or look at a video from UCTV on my iPad, instead.

Re: Choice Hotels and Cable
Agree with you. I believe 'Bring your content' will be the way forward. It is alreday in effect to some level. When you have unlimited data, with mobile hotspot it is a done deal.
