Will App turn on TV and set-top box?

Will App turn on TV and set-top box?

If I select the "Watch On" button from the TV Remote App for a particular program, but the TV and set-top box are turned off, will the App turn the TV and set-top box on?  Will the set-top box automatically tune to the program once the box is turned on?  Or will nothing happen and the system will not respond to the request?

The TV app will change the channels on the cable box but I do not believe it will turn the cable box or the tv on or off.

That's correct, the app does not control power of the tv or cable box.
