Simple Remote - Remote Control for Apple TV



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 DVR’s

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 TV’s volume or the soundbar's 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.
