WebTV Networks and On Command Corp. Feb. 4 said they will begin a three-month test of Internet service in San Francisco area hotel rooms as a first step in an ambitious plan to offer in-room Web service. The two will jointly develop and invest in an enhanced version of WebTV to allow guests to access e-mail and browse the Net. On Command, run by multimedia veteran Robert Kavner, now supplies TV entertainment and information services under the On Command and SpectraVision brands in 3,200 hotels globally.
