Guests used to flip on the television when they arrived in their hotel rooms, but today's travelers bring their own devices and many are looking to connect to on-demand choices such as Hulu Plus and Netflix. LodgeNet, a hotel-room-entertainment provider, recently filed for bankruptcy, as the number of hotel rooms it serves has dropped steeply. The company is trying to revamp its service so guests can connect via Wi-Fi or a direct cable connection between their mobile device and the TV in the guest room.
