HOTSPLOTS and Lufthansa Systems sign cooperation agreement

20.12.2017 12:16:19 - HOTSPLOTS Cinema entertainment package now with new, extended and internationally available content

( - Berlin, 20 December 2017 – hotsplots GmbH, a provider of professional Wi-Fi solutions, and Lufthansa Systems GmbH & Co. KG have signed a cooperation agreement enabling HOTSPLOTS to market feature films and series provided by Lufthansa Systems as a content package including international licences. The content can be streamed via mobile Wi-Fi hotspots in buses and trains.

The cooperation with Lufthansa


Systems allows HOTSPLOTS to offer its international customers a comprehensive range of current blockbusters, feature films and series. The films fall into the so-called “Late window content” category, meaning they hit the cinema approximately three months earlier or appear on DVD/Blu-ray about a month later. The versions provided are dubbed and subtitled in various languages, which international passengers and those with an interest in foreign languages can choose from.

This completely revised HOTSPLOTS Cinema package perfectly complements the professional Wi-Fi service and existing HOTSPLOTS Media solutions, which received the German “busplaner” magazine’s Innovation Award in November 2017. In addition to HOTSPLOTS Cinema, customers can use the information services HOTSPLOTS Press and HOTSPLOTS Tourist Info as well as the entertainment package HOTSPLOTS TV to go.

Karsten Micke, Head of International Sales at hotsplots GmbH, comments on the cooperation: “Busworld Europe, the biggest bus and coach exhibition in the world, which took place last October, clearly showed that Wi-Fi has become a standard in buses. With our entertainment and information services we are now taking the next step and thanks to the agreement with Lufthansa Systems the attractiveness of our entertainment package has gained a considerable boost. This puts us in a position to offer – together with our partner Robert Bosch Car Multimedia – an all-round package comprising hardware, Wi-Fi and infotainment services, especially in the bus and coach sector. This interplay of the brands Bosch, Lufthansa Systems and HOTSPLOTS is unique in the market and guarantees bus companies a high degree of expertise and brand quality ‘Made in Germany’. Together we will offer this solution internationally. It is available as an initial installation through leading vehicle manufacturers or through retrofitting and can be installed as a complete solution as well as a stand-alone service.”

“In recent years, Lufthansa Systems has accumulated a high degree of expertise in order to establish Media Services not only in the in-flight entertainment market in the aviation sector but also in markets such as the bus and coach market,” explains Jan-Peter Gänse, Head of Passenger Experience Products & Solutions at Lufthansa Systems. “Content providers – especially Hollywood studios – attach particular importance to the safety of their films, meaning they are only allowed to be played on systems that comply with special security requirements, such as HOTSPLOTS’ system. We are convinced that with our BoardConnect Media Services together with HOTSPLOTS and its cooperation partner Robert Bosch Car Multimedia we can offer a premium product for entertainment on buses.”
