Worldwide sales of PPDS’ Philips MediaSuite TVs surpass 500,000

Philips MediaSuite remains the only hospitality TV to feature Chromecast built-in, with access to the Google Play store and Netflix ready functionality

PPDS, the exclusive global provider of Philips Professional Displays, has announced that sales of Philips MediaSuite TVs surpassed 500,000 during the week of ISE 2024.

The milestone – which has exceeded PPDS’ own ambitious internal targets – arrives less than five years after Philips MediaSuite was first introduced to the hospitality industry. Philips MediaSuite (available in models sized from 19-75in) launched in EMEA in 2019 and in North America and APAC in 2021, quickly becoming the brand of choice for some of the world’s most prestigious and recognised hotel groups. Today, PPDS has regional and international supplier agreements with Accor, B&B Hotels, Best Western, Choice, Four Seasons, IHG, Louvre, Marriott, Radisson, and Wyndham, to name just a few.

“Philips MediaSuite was inspired by personal experience,” said Jeroen Verhaeghe, global business development director for hospitality at PPDS. “Hotel TVs had lost their appeal. They simply weren’t keeping pace with modern day viewing habits, forcing guests to watch their content through their mobile devices rather than on the big screen. That is certainly not the case in the half million plus rooms now hosting Philips MediaSuite, bringing home-from-home entertainment options streaming in for guests, reforming perceptions of hotel TVs, and creating new possibilities and efficiencies for hotels, too.”

Offering a “seamless transition” between home and the hotel room, Philips MediaSuite remains the only hospitality TV to feature Chromecast built-in, with access to the Google Play store and Netflix ready functionality. Guests can access and cast their content from their preferred accounts (including Apple TV+, DAZN, Disney+, Prime, YouTube, and more) directly onto the TV using their own personal device – whatever their mobile operating system – as they would at home, with no additional wires, dongles, or reoccurring equipment fees for the hotel.

With Chromecast built-in, security is also enhanced, with no additional external hardware and therefore zero risk of its theft – a feature exclusive to Philips MediaSuite and the recently launched Philips Hospitality TV 4500 Series – while all customer data is automatically deleted upon check-out, removing timely and costly manual wiping and giving guests total peace of mind. 

“By working with our specialist team of experts, together with the unrivalled manufacturing power of our mother company, TPV, and our incredible partners, we are committed to delivering the many world-first features and functions on this state-of-the-art, all inclusive, and ever evolving solution,” added Verhaeghe. “Android, Chromecast built-in, and all the streaming opportunities will continue to be a part of this incredible story.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the response from the market. And we’re not standing still, either. With news such as the addition of DAZN – only available for hospitality on Philips MediaSuite TVs – and more to come, we are continuing to bring world-first, complementary solutions that add even more value for our hospitality customers. And we thank them all for choosing Philips, positioning our hospitality TVs as the brand of choice for advanced guest entertainment and experiences.”
