Description Technical Specifications FAQ's & Support Docs

The Channel Master Simple Remote is designed to function as an alternative remote control for Apple TV devices (4th Generation and 4K). The Simple Remote provides Apple TV users a more conventional remote control user experience with up, down, left and right navigation buttons. The Simple Remote uses IR technology (not Bluetooth) which enables the ability to also control the volume up/down and the power on/off functions of most popular televisions or soundbars. The Simple Remote is pre-programmed to work with Apple TV devices out of the box or it can also be programmed to work as a replacement remote control for Channel Master DVRís.

Note: The Simple Remote control uses IR technology which means voice search(Siri) is not compatible and line of sight between the Simple Remote and the Apple TV is required.

Channel Master is committed to providing consumers with high-quality television experiences by producing products that are innovative and easy to install, set up and use. Many Channel Master OTA Antenna users also use Apple products including the Apple TV for streaming video, this is how the simple remote came about.

The Channel Master Simple Remote is an ideal alternative remote control for Apple TV users who have difficulties using the remote control included with the Apple TV or for those who have lost or broken their original remote control and need a replacement. The Simple Remote uses IR technology to communicate and is designed to control all of the basic functions of the Apple TV except for Bluetooth voice functionality. The Simple Remote also has a universal feature that allows it to be programmed to control the on/off, volume up/down and mute functionality of most brands of TVs and soundbars. (The universal capability allows programming for one additional device that users can set to control either the TVís volume or the soundbars volume).

The Channel Master product team has spent extensive time testing the Simple Remote with many popular streaming apps and various home theater set-ups and use cases. This remote is ideal for use with popular live-streaming apps including Sling, YouTubeTV, Hulu + Live, GetChannels and more. One important button on the Simple Remote is the HOME button, this button will allow you immediately return to the Apple TV home screen and to manage/close all apps that are running on the Apple TV.

The Simple remote control is also compatible with Channel Master DVR+ and Stream+ OTA DVRís (Programming Required).

5 of 5 Apple TV Remote Replacement January 14, 2021
Reviewer: RGS from Luling, LA  
This is an excellent replacement for the 4th generation Apple TV remote.  Much easier to operate, simple to setup and use.  It's also at a great price at $25.00.  My only slight disappointment is it can't simultaneously operate the Apple TV and my Channel Master CM-7500GB16 DVR unit I use daily.  It can be programmed to operate the Channel Master DVR but it won't operate both devices simultaneously.  You can reprogram each time to operate the device you wanting to control, but that's inconvenient in my opinion.  I use my new remote for the Apple TV, as I never liked the way the "glass" on the Apple remote functioned.

I highly recommend the Channel Master Apple TV remote.  It's a long overdue product for the 4th generation Apple TV at a great price.

4 of 5 Lacking voice feature January 13, 2021
Reviewer: BOBBY V from Albuquerque  
This is a good remote if you don't care about using the voice functions.  I talked to channel master and asked them why they did this and they said it needs bluetooth to work and this remote does not have bluetooth but in.  They said that they did not add bluetooth in because it allowed them to offer a lower price and that most of their customers don't use the voice feature anyway.  SO IF YOU WANT TALK INTO THE REMOTE, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU.  OTHER THAN THAT IT IS A REALLY NICE REMOTE.

5 of 5 Works great with Apple TV January 12, 2021
Reviewer: Mike Reed from Miami  
It’s exactly what the name says, a simple remote for Apple TV.  Even though it is not Bluetooth and it doesn’t support Siri, it is a nice remote.  I don’t use those features anyways.
