Fewer and fewer hotels seem to do it anymore Jerry. I have a suspicion that the ones that do are those that either are still in a multi-year contract or making a significant revenue stream from porno movies.

Increasingly you turn on the TV and it is just a TV. I've also encountered some that have the additional features like bill review etc. but which offer no movies etc.

day the hotels used to charge for rental movies (pay-per-view). Is this
kind of thing no longer part of their income stream?

I like watching NetFlix as much as the next person but I can understand some
hotels blocking that. It's a huge bandwidth suck and slows down the
internet for me tremendously when people throughout my area start firing it
up at night. Can you imaging the bandwidth the hotel would have to have to
support every third room streaming NetFlix?
