E-Guide Services, Inc. Contracts Accor North America,
Motel 6 and Studio 6
.

Dallas, TX – E-Guide Services, Inc. (EGS) announced Tuesday that it has signed an agreement with Accor North America, Motel 6 and Studio 6 to install E-GuideTV, their fully customizable television guide channel, as an added amenity to all Accor corporately owned Motel 6 and Studio 6 properties. 

EGS is the provider of E-GuideTV, a real-time television guide channel designed specifically for the hospitality industry. E-GuideTV is customized to engage viewers and keep them in the know with up-to-date TV listings, local and national advertisements, entertaining content, local time and date. 

Accor is excited to be able to provide the E-GuideTV service to the 625 corporately owned properties and their guests. Installations are already underway in the Dallas/Fort Worth and are soon to begin in Houston, Austin and San Antonio areas.
“We are excited to partner with E-GuideTV to offer our guests the added convenience of knowing what's on TV without having to search through channels or asking the front desk," said Olivier Poirot, CEO of Accor North America, Motel 6 and Studio 6.  "At Motel 6, we pride ourselves in offering a great value at lowest price of any national chain, and E-GuideTV is one of the ways we're increasing price value for our guests." 

For Motel 6 and Studio 6 guests, E-GuideTV will act as a central location to find TV programming information, local time and date, making their stay a more hassle-free experience. 

For the corporately owned Motel 6 and Studio 6 properties, E-GuideTV will also act as a green solution providing TV programming on guest room TVs and eliminating paper waste and printing cost associated with printed in-room channel line-up cards. 

In addition, the E-GuideTV service will be customized for each hotel with their branded logo and specific television listings data. Guests will consequently only see programs available at that hotel, and will no longer have to hassle with tuning to a channel that is unavailable.

The E-GuideTV service will also be made available to Accor franchised properties at no cost.
