Motel 6, World Cinema and DISH Network have completed a multi-year agreement through which DISH and World Cinema will deliver HD satellite TV service and high speed Internet access to the motel chain's more than 500 owned-and-operated properties.

"Motel 6 understands the importance of technology that is scalable, economical and energy-efficient," said Robert Grosz, vice president of commercial sales for DISH. "Based on Motel 6's preferences, we tailored a smartbox solution that features channel options and scrolling guide functionality that will enrich each guest's stay at the motel."

DISH's smartbox can support a custom combination of legacy analogue and HD channels at the same property, with remote updating capabilities.

"World Cinema has grown with Motel 6 through three generations of in-room technology, and we pride ourselves on delivering cutting-edge technology to the hotel industry," said Chet Dickson, president of World Cinema. "Combining this tailored HD TV solution with our optimised Internet service represents the future of in-room entertainment. Motel 6 guests will have the at-home experience at their fingertips."
