EchoStar Sign a Multi-Year Hotel TV Deal with Guest-Tek

EchoStar Communications announced a multi-year deal to provide its DISH Network satellite TV service to Guest-Tek Interactive Entertainment Ltd., which provides networking services to major hotel brands. The agreement will provide a package of television programming services called Free-to-Guest (FTG), which includes a wide range of premium content and more HD channels than previously available.

Guest-Tek brings additional value to the hotelier through its ability to provide the FTG programming over a converged network along with its video-on-demand (VOD), high-definition video-on-demand (HD-VOD) and telephony services. Guest-Tek offers this converged 'triple-play' service set through multiple network platforms including coax, or local area network infrastructures.
