Movistar+ app updated to act as TV remote

Friday 19 May 2017 | 12:03 CET | News

Telefonica has updated its Movistar+ multi-device app to allow pay-TV subscribers to use their smartphones and tablets as a remote control. Users simply have to tap an icon on the top right of the app to convert their mobile device into a remote control for the decoder, with all the buttons normally found on a physical remote control, including channel selection, volume as well as the ability to stop and resume playback, rewind or fast-forward programmes, record content and select favourites, among other features. The update comes as the operator prepares to follow Vodafone with the launch of a dedicated 4K-UHD decoder.
