Peel for iPhone can control DirectTV or Dish without additional hardware
Peel has announced an update for its re-released Smart Remote and TV Guide iOS app that allows DirectTV and Dish Network customers to dispense with additional hardware to use its functions. The universal smart remote app can communicate directly with a set-top box, with the only additional requirement being a Wi-Fi connection to facilitate the link. Advanced features of the app require at least an iPhone 4S running iOS 7. Peel aims to provide its remote control service to new TV providers in the near future.
