      Best Apple TV accessory ever. Bought two of these, one for my 4th gen Apple TV and one for my 3rd gen in the basement. Does exactly what it says it does. I’ve got all 8 buttons programmed on my home theater setup upstairs. I’ve got it programmed to turn on my TV, turn my amp on and select the output I have Apple TV assigned to, turn the volume up and down. I’ve also got another button programmed to select the DVR output from my amp and the last two buttons programmed to change the channel up or down on my DVR remote. You can also charge your 4th gen remote with Sideclick, a lot of thought definitely went into this. It makes the Apple remote easier to hold and harder to lose as well, huge plus. Looks like they also have one for Roku and Amazon Fire TV, if I ever buy a Roku or Amazon Fire TV I'll for sure be getting a Sideclick for those as well.

      Works as intended.

      I bought the sideclick with the thought of making my 4th gen appletv remote a bit beefier and to hopefully end its game of sliding down the couch cushion(s). The remote became more robust, but the slip resistance I was hoping for wasn’t there. Where the sideclick really shined was when I used it, as intended, on my appletv 2nd gen remote (used in a room that only has “old” tech). Not only was the remote beefier, but I finally had a use for the universal remote attachment. Remote setup took maybe 4 seconds, per button, to program. I no longer need to juggle 2 extra remotes (tv, DVD player) and can easily control the extra devices with the sideclick. This works as advertised. I would prefer a thin slip resistant strip on the bottom for future models. A clip to cover the appletv attachment that doesn’t have the sideclick on it would also make more sense given the price point of this accessory.

      Bad design, good concept


      The sidekick makes the Apple TV remote bigger than an iPhone 6 with a battery extension case on it, and that makes using the touch pad on the Apple remote side a pain to use. Few people have hands big enough to reach across comfortably. The idea of the slidekick is to be slim and low profile, and perhaps make the streaming remote slightly more substantial in the hand, but instead, it just makes using the remote annoying. fingers don't wrap around the remote all the way, so they are awkwardly underneath the remote. Right handed use: The weight of the batteries in the slidekick is annoying when using the apple remote, and the TV buttons require a stretch to reach with the thumb. Left handed use: great for TV buttons, but using ApplTV touch pad is as annoying as reaching for something on the top end of an iPhone 6 screen If you don't browse much, and you like ugly things that cost 1/5th of the applTV, than this might be the product for you. I will most likely return this item, if I have the time before the 30 days is up.

      Streamlined streaming


      Great product!!! Sideclick makes streaming my content so easy for anyone to do. Turn on the TV with the power button, change the source if I need to, and control my surround system with the volume & custom buttons. Not only does It makes it a breeze to control a complicated system, but it's easy to set up as well. I had a more complicated/hard to read universal remote, and I "taught" the Sideclick all the commands I needed from that. This makes it easy for anyone who comes over to control my Apple TV and stream music/movies from streaming service apps off their phone. The slight negative, be willing to forego complete, 100% control of your system with a single remote though. The limited number of buttons makes things easy, but may keep you from a function you may want, like a surround/stereo mode toggle. But if you think about the necessary functions for your setup, you'll end up programming a very effective Sideclick. Would recommend to anyone who is interested in making it easy as pie to get to the content, which is totally worth it.

      New Rule: No Apple TV remotes without Sideclicks!


      Sideclick is a big win for me. I have 2 young kids and I have yet to find another Apple TV user with kids that hasn't had to replace the remote at least once. We indeed had to replace it once and it went missing for a good 3 days another time. The Sideclick remote adds the perfect amount of bulk to the remote to keep it from slipping into the abyss of the couch cushions, and yet the attachment is slim enough that it is easily controlled with one-hand. Sideclick also makes navigating media selections easier for all of us. Instead of needing multiple remotes for turning on/off the tv, switching the input to the Apple TV, channel surfing using our Antenna, or adjusting volume through our sound bar, everything can be done with the Sideclick Remote. Since getting the Sideclick, there has been significantly less "MOM" shouts across the house from frustrated kids so that is huge. It really is a handy little accessory. Perfect for cordcutters with minimal button function needs. We also have one for our Roku. 5 stars

      Makes my streaming life so much easier

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I backed the Sideclick on Kickstarter, so have been using it for some time. I bought one for my 3rd generation Apple TV, and absolutely loved it. With the increased functionality of the 4th generation Apple TV remote, I wasn’t sure that I’d need it, but even for that one, it’s a great help. There are rare times that I need to pick up another remote, but the Apple TV remote with a Sideclick is generally all I need to use most of the time. Pros: Light and not bulky at all (-although it’s light, it adds much-needed bulk to the teensy-tiny Apple remote that can be easy to lose between the cushions) Intuitive and easy to learn to use. Extremely easy to program Cons: Honestly, none that I can think of. Depending on the system setup, I’ve used my Sideclicks to program TV power and volume, receiver volume, receiver inputs, TV channel, muting, and more. They’re an indispensable aid to streaming, and I absolutely love the Sideclick.

      Great Addition to AppleTV 4th Gen

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      I use both the Amazon FireTV and AppleTV to stream movies and various apps. Since I have been using the AppleTV for AirPlay more recently I purchased this remote addition to make it easier to control my soundbar. I added a Yamaha soundbar to my Samsung TV to improve the quality of the sound and this remote allows to easily control the volume. The remote is programmed like any other IR learning remote so you need the original, but also not limited to predetermined code list either. The other small advantage is I know which way is up on the Apple remote. For those of us reaching blind for the Apple remote it can be difficult which end is the touchpad since it is all black. The Sidekick is added to the left side. Yes you can tell by looking at the lettering on the buttons on the remote, but challenging when you are over fifty and not wearing glasses. LOL

      Awesome Invention

      I love the Sideclick! I have a very small TV in my home office, along with a soundbar and an apple TV. I really didn't want three remotes on my desk, and I didn't need an expensive universal remote -- i mean, it's my home office. This is the perfect product -- it is quickly and easily programmed, and now I can just click one button to turn on the TV, another to turn on the soundbar, and then just use the apple TV remote to control volume (and programming selection). I've also found the Apple TV (4th gen) remote to be reallllly sensitive -- just touching it or moving it can wake up the apple TV, and it's easy to register accidental touches/clicks. Having the side click on the remote also helps avoid accidental touches and clicks. This thing is perfect for what i needed, and it works perfectly!
