One of the tough parts of traveling now is being able to access the programs you want on the go. For some time now, select hotels have offered Chromecast support. Now IHG Hotels and Resorts is rolling out AirPlay in select locations. With this cord cutters will easily be able to cast their videos from their phone or tablet to their TVs in supported hotels.

IHG says AirPlay is now live in over 60 hotels in North America with more coming in the months to come.

In a statement Apple said: “Users can automatically connect to the compatible LG hotel TV in their guest room and the hotel’s Wi-Fi network by scanning a unique QR code on the screen. Once connected, guests can share almost anything on the big screen in their hotel room directly from their iPhone or iPad. Guests can also pair multiple devices to the TV, so friends and loved ones traveling together can also enjoy.”
