October 25, 2017 Vanessa, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Like most people, the idea of paying USD20 in a hotel room to “buy a movie” never made sense to Vanessa. As the years went by, and more and more travelers journeyed with their own personal mobile devices on which they could work and watch movies and stream TV, it seemed like a personal affront.
