SPARK® Media allows you to transform the patient experience with a hospital entertainment system that has everything a patient could need, including a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) solution.
Our technology caters to individual patient preferences and backgrounds, fostering digital inclusion. Patients can access entertainment relevant to their demographics and cultures, bridging divides. We reduce isolation through games and virtual connections to family.
By managing pain and anxiety, we enable better sleep and recovery. SPARK® Media can provide light therapy, music, meditation and more to support positive mental health. This holistic approach promotes the social and emotional well-being critical to quality of life.
We also deliver vital health education to boost participation in care decisions and post-discharge planning. Improving comprehension this way promotes equality and personal autonomy. Consistent usage helps hospitals better understand patient needs, supply resources accordingly and reduce readmissions.
SPARK® Media makes the NHS experience more positive for patients from all walks of life. We believe every patient deserves the best care delivered in the most uplifting way possible.
By working to humanise healthcare, we assist the NHS in providing truly patient-centred and sustainable care.

Frequently asked questions
Frequently asked questions
Is SPARK® Media free for patients?
Yes! All SPARK Products are free for end users & patients. Trusts and their charities can front the cost to provide this essential entertainment and engagement resource to patients.
How does SPARK® Media work?
Once you’ve successfully connected to our WiFi, you will be re-directed to the SPARK Media landing page. If this doesn’t happen automatically, enter www.wifitv.co.uk into your web-browser.
There are three tabs on this platform: Entertainment, Charity and MyCare. Each tab links to an entertainment platform or resource.
Can I add custom links or applications to my service?
Yes, absolutely! We can feature whatever your Trust or hospital wants to display or signpost patients and visitors too. This can be a web link or an application from our apps catalogue.
Can I have SPARK® Media for just one ward?
Yes! If you’d like to test the return on investment of SPARK® Media we can deploy the solution on one ward to be specifically tailored to that ward. When you’re ready, we can rollout to other wards/areas with a fully customised solution for each.
(This only applies to the solution on Bedside Units rather than BYOD)
How is the solution digitally inclusive?
Our SPARK solution covers three avenues to ensure digital inclusivity.
- Bring your own device (BYOD) where patients connect to our WiFi and access digital engagement platforms for entertainment & resources through SPARK® Media.
- Trust devices such as tablets that can be lent out to patients where they can access SPARK® Media.
- Bedside Unit (BSU) devices mounted to walls hosting SPARK® Media as the platform. These will be an upgrade to the existing Hospedia BSU and will be free for the patient, or can be installed from scratch.
I’ve lost the SPARK® Media page, how do I navigate back to it?
Not a problem, simply enter www.wifitv.co.uk into your web browser.
