HTC Sense TV app has returned with remote control TV functions restored

In a surprise turn of events, the HTC Sense TV app, which was shut down over a month ago, has now returned to the Windows Phone Store.with a new update.

In March, HTC told us that it would shut down the HTC Sense TV app for Windows Phone on April 30. The app allowed owners of the HTC One M8 for Windows to use its IR blaster as a remote control for their TV. At the time of its shutdown, HTC said that that owners of the smartphone would be prompted to download a replacement Peel app.

However, that app never showed up and now, according to a number of tips from Windows Central readers, they have received prompts to update their own HTC Sense TV app with a new update. Your guess is as good as ours as to why HTC has changed its mind, but we will contact them to see if they can comment on this reversal.

Thanks to everyone for the tips!
