Will Hotel Technology Ever Rule The World? | By James Harrison

Will Hotel technology Ever Rule The World? An interesting topic that I came up with, almost as a humorous, tongue in cheek look at an automated future in hotels. However, I first thought of the idea in December 2019, and planned to publish an article in March 2020. I did write a short article about whether COVID19 can stop hotel technology, but I put this one on ice.

Hotel TV And The Future – Part Four | By James Harrison

Before we dive deeper into content delivery it’s key to understand what is happening in the content provider landscape. One word you will hear in the video, and in many other places is unbundling. Unbundling is something that effects both On Demand content providers and Liner (Channel) providers.

As I sit here on March 1st 2020, writing this article, we are in the middle of a global pandemic. If you’re reading this shortly after I issued it, you’ll know that pandemic is the Coronavirus.
