Be Your Own TV Guide & Never Miss Out

Being your own TV guide has never been more convenient. With Pronto and the Peel Smart Remote App, everything you need is in the palm of your hand. You can personalize your settings and enjoy Peel’s customized recommendations based on your interests and viewing habits. You no longer have to scroll through hundreds of channels on your TV to find something that will interest you; you’ll find them right on the Peel App home screen.

Don’t worry about missing out on the season’s hottest shows because with the Peel app’s ongoing customized reminders, you’ll be able to keep up with all your favorite programs.

The app will show you what’s airing in real-time, what you can watch later and even the popular shows people are buzzing about on Twitter. Set favorite channels, genres and shows to create your own personalized TV guide.

It’s Small but Mighty

Pronto is palm-sized, lightweight and will fit in the smallest of spaces. It’s easy and effortless to set up and offers a sleek black design that blends with any home décor.

Connection is always reliable to your iPhone thanks to Bluetooth Smart. For those who prefer a minimalist look and keep their entertainment devices stored away, Pronto’s optional IR extension cable allows you to still control your entertainment while keeping your media center clutter free.

Enjoy the freedom of personalized control from anywhere in the house. Pronto is not just limited to your living room, as some users may prefer to catch up on their shows in the man cave or bedroom. With a second Pronto, simply set up a new room in the Peel app and connect.
