A TV experience
you’ve never experienced.

Finding your next movie or show to watch can be frustrating. Clicking countless buttons on the remote as you navigate cluttered screens. Apple TV changes all that. Bypass those confusing remote buttons with a simple swipe of your thumb. See your entertainment options clearly laid out before you. It’s an experience designed to make you feel like you’re interacting directly with your screen, even though it’s on the other side of the room.

Redesigned Interface

Feel fully immersed in your screen.
Even from across the room.

Many of the products we make — iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch — are built around the same profound experience: connecting you directly with what’s on your screen. Simple, natural movements of your finger play a big role in that. But how do you create that same immersive experience with a screen that’s hanging on the wall 10 feet away? The Apple TV interface solves that fundamental challenge by using Touch to reimagine how you interact with your TV screen.

  • Touch. The most natural way to navigate.

    The glass Touch surface on the Apple TV Remote was engineered to provide an experience that feels both fluid and precise. What your finger does on the remote is exactly and immediately what it does on your screen. It’s so natural, in fact, that your eyes don’t even need to look down. You never have to hunt for a button to press or have a light on to see.

Touch Surface

TV was controlled by buttons. Now it’s controlled by Touch.

The Apple TV Remote has a precise Touch surface, so you can use your thumb to quickly and accurately navigate around your television screen. You can also control the volume on your TV or A/V receiver. And thanks to Bluetooth, you don’t have to point your remote at your TV. Apple TV picks up your commands from anywhere in the room.

Apple TV Remote App

Control your big screen from your small screen.

Download the Apple TV Remote app and you’ll have full control of your Apple TV from your iPhone or iPod touch. Search for movies and music by text or dictation. Navigate by touch and gesture. Or play games that take advantage of the accelerometer and gyroscope.1
