What accessories are available for the Apple TV 4?

Siri Remote

Here's a quick look at three available accessories available for the fourth-generation Apple TV at launch (October 26, 2015). We will add noteworthy third-party controllers to this list when they're released.

Siri Remote

Apple is offering replacement Siri Remotes through apple.com for $79. That's a lot of money for a remote control, even if it does have Siri, so it's probably a smart idea not lose or damage the original remote that comes bundled with your Apple TV.

Remote Loop

If you have ever used a Wii controller then you will recognize the Remote Loop. The $12.99 piece of cord connects the the Lighting adapter of your Siri Remote so you can tether the controller to your wrist. This will ensure you do not fling your Siri Remote through your television set when using it as a motion video game controller. Just Google "wii controller tv smash" for some examples.

SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Gaming Controller
