HTC confirms support of Sense TV ending, to be replaced with Peel remote app

Through an update to the Sense TV app, HTC revealed that they would be ending support for the app at the end of April. Sense TV worked with the HTC One M8's IR blaster, functioning as an interactive TV guide.

Now we have official confirmation that HTC will be transitioning users over to the regular Peel app in place of the old Sense TV app. HTC tells Windows Central that after the cut-off, users will be prompted to download the Peel app in place of Sense TV on both Windows and Android devices. The two apps are essentially the same, the big difference here being Sense TV was a branded version with design input from the Taiwanese manufacturer.

While Sense TV is still available in the Windows Phone Store for the time being, we're not seeing an official listing for the Peel app on Windows as yet. Hopefully the new app will kick in in plenty of time before the shutdown.
