Cox Beefs Up Hotel ITV Offering


Cox Business Services and nSTREAMS Technologies Inc. are partnering to supply
interactive-TV services, including movies-on-demand and Internet browsing, to
hotel guests.

The partnership will add nSTREAMS' interactive technology with in-room
interactive systems provided by Cox sibling Hospitality Network and video, data
and voice offerings from CBS. Hospitality Network serves more than 110,000 hotel
and resort rooms nationwide.

'Our relationship with nSTREAMS helps to further our technological reach and
bolster our aggressive push into a market segment that our people and our
network are well suited to serve,' Cox Business Services vice president and
general manager Chuck McElroy said in a prepared statement.

'Now, as a one-stop shop for cable television, ITV, voice and data, we can
install and serve hoteliers quickly and efficiently, saving them time and fees
from the hassle of multiple providers,' he added.
