Peel.in Platform Makes it Easier for TV Networks to Drive Tune-In on Social

peel-smart-remote-462_1Smart remote technology leader Peel announced last week at the Mobilebeat Conference the launch of its Peel.in TV Tune-in Platform. The platform allows networks to more effectively drive tune-in on social.

Now, in promoting tune-ins, networks can go to http://peel.in and create a unique “Peel-In” link. When the link is clicked on a smartphone with Peel’s Smart Remote app (non-iOS users are likely to have this preloaded on their phones), users will be prompted with tune-in messaging and will have the ability to go directly to the show, set a reminder for later, or record the show on a DVR. Among networks that have already used the feature are AMC, HBO, BET, PBS, Univision, and Sundance Channel.

“Seventy-five percent of smartphone owners have the device in hand when watching TV. Twitter, Facebook and other social media have emerged as significant second-screen platforms for engaging viewers around TV programming,” said Bala Krishnan, co-founder and Chief Product Officer at Peel. “What was missing was a mechanism for directly connecting potential viewers and their friends to a show or movie. Peel.in provides that direct link.”

In May, The History Channel became the first network to use an advertising solution from Peel that allowed Smart Remote users to change the channel to a promoted show, DVR the show, or set up a calendar reminder by clicking on an in-app banner. If users begin taking action on Peel-In links and in-app advertising from networks, Peel will become one of the most powerful cross-platform tools networks have to drive tune-in.
