Do You Ever Use The In-Room DVD Player During Your Hotel Stay?
A few years back, we used to get excited to see a DVD Player in a hotel room and while they are still a rarity, when we checked into the Signature at MGM Grand in Las Vegas the other day, we hardly flinched when we saw this DVD player right below the flat-screen TV.
Are we just completely jaded now or is the DVD player going the way of the hotel telephone? After all, so much recreational programming (movies, TV shows, music) can be found on your computer, your phone or your tablet.
And with the advent of streaming services like Netflix and even the movie rentals from iTunes, putting in a disc in a DVD player just seems silly. Plus, before we know it, DirecTV and other DVR services will come online in hotel rooms too, further edging out the DVD.
We tried to think of uses for the DVD player and could really only come up with two:
1.Kids. Your kids want to watch "Despicable Me" over and over and it's better/easier to watch on a real TV than have them hogging your computer/phone/tablet.
2. Work. You're a modern day Mad Man/Woman and you need to watch sample ads/presentations on DVD during your trip.
