Many Apple devices work splendidly right out of the box. Unfortunately, that’s not necessarily true for the Apple TV’s Siri Remote, which has a notoriously finicky learning curve, even after the company updated the controller for the Apple TV 4K.

Thankfully, as with all Apple devices, third-party accessories can help you get the most out of your streaming experience. For example, you can purchase this Function101 Button Remote for only $24.95 with code BUTTON5 for a limited time.

The Apple TV has a lot going for it, but the Siri Remote is pretty divisive, to say the least. If you like telling a robot what to do, you’re going to be hard-pressed to find a better remote. However, if you want a traditional TV-watching experience, the voice controls might not be your cup of tea.

Instead, you may like the Function101 Button Remote. The Function101 was designed as a replacement remote for Apple TV and Apple TV 4K, and it may make it a little easier for you to use all the features built into your set-top streamer. For a limited time, you can get the Function101 Remote on sale for $24.95 (regularly $29.95) with code BUTTON5.
