we you will be in a hotel with a flat panel tuned to The Window Channel. Designed specifically for hotel operators, the idea is to give visitors a window to anywhere in the world, with five minute, single camera "locked down" clips from Maui, the Champs-Elysées and other locations slightly more glamorous than wherever you really are. Not sure if 1080i and 5.1 surround is worth calling ahead for? Check out TheWindowChannel.com for some lower-res preview clips and see if it doesn't bring you around.
