Next generation hospitality TVs : Set for sustainability
With the latest version of Android TV OS , introduced in October 2020 , all existing HFL6014 and HFL5014 models can be updated to include these benefits as a part of the PPDS ‘ extended lifetime ’ guarantee .

“ At PPDS , we always place customer experience at the heart of what we do . Entertainment is a big part of the experience when staying in a hotel . With our TVs running on Android TV OS , our extended lifetime guarantee ensures guests can always enjoy a home from home experience , choosing to watch or listen to their own content on or through the big screen , rather than their smaller personal device . Likewise , for hoteliers , having the ability to upgrade their fleet of TVs to ensure expectations are met , rather than being forced to invest heavily in new models is invaluable – for them and for the planet .”
