Used in conjunction with the free Nevo iOS or Android app, full zapper functionality can be configured on your smartphone or tablet in less than three minutes. It works with any Bluetooth Smart enabled Android or Apple phone. Once you have selected your provider, the correct channel line-up will automatically download.
It is also customisable. For example, press ‘Watch Movie’ on your tablet and it can turn on your TV, Blu-ray player and amplifier, using the correct HDMI ports, and play the movie. You can also switch TV channels directly from the EPG menu on either a smartphone or a tablet.

You can pre-define up to twenty different activities on your tablet (five on a smartphone), such as Listen to Music, Play Games, Go to Bed, Watch Nickelodeon or Listen to iPod Dock.
