The next time you're on a trip, you may have something to watch on the hotel room TV besides the usual so-so channels and on-demand movies. Marriott has confirmed to Bloomberg that it's trialing access to streaming services like Hulu, Netflix and Pandora on TVs in eight of its hotels. It's not certain what the company will charge (if anything) if it launches this feature in earnest, although it's reportedly mulling a few options that include a "premium" internet tier with TV streaming on top of the usual WiFi. That last choice might not be very popular when you can already curl up on the bed with your laptop at no extra cost. Having said this, Marriott hasn't committed to anything yet -- there's a lot left to decide before you can watch House of Cards on a big screen during your vacation.
