9 Awesome Apple TV Accessories

SteelSeries Nimbus

SteelSeries Nimbus

While you can use the Apple TV remote as a gaming controller by flipping it sideways, it doesn't provide quite the same experience as a dedicated game controller. However, you can get one for your new Apple TV.

The SteelSeries Nimbus is a gaming controller that you can connect directly to your Apple TV over Bluetooth and use it to play games. It has a similar design as the Xbox One controller, but with the D-Pad and left thumbstick switched around.

It costs $49, which is right on par with the cost of a game controller for an Xbox or PlayStation. It would be nice if users could use a PS4 controller with the Apple TV, since it uses Bluetooth as well, but we're guessing we'll see unofficial support for that arrive soon enough, either through jailbreaking or by other means.

    The Apple TV (4th Gen.) does not support keyboards, at least not yet. You might want to do your research before you start recommending accessories for Apple TV that aren’t even supported.

    Ridiculous article, my Apple TV 4 did come with an HDMI cable, so glad I didn’t read this 1st and run out to by one I didn’t need, and recommending a £79 keyboard when the device doesn’t as yet support BT keyboards. What research and testing did you ACTUALLY carry out? Most unprofessional

    The AppleTV does NOT come with an HDMI cable. Never has in any model. It does come with a power cable, and a lightning cable with which to charge your remote, but that’s it.

    One off the most annoying things I see so far is that you can add apps like amazon video on your phone or tablet but not on the apple tv, yet they added the Ookla speed test app which I believe is useless in a sense that you will only use once or twice for troubleshooting only.

    YOU ARE ALL WRONK ON THE KEYBOARD ISSUE

    AppleTV has always had the ability to connect to an Apple WIRELESS keyboard via BLUETOOTH.
    Look up the info on a simple Google search and find out how!

    Check the brand page of Sikai Case, they manufacture as well some cases for Apple TV.

    I have no clue whenever they are awesome as other here claim about their product :D, might be good might be not.

    But some of their stuff which I bought was quite good, well at least relatively to the price I paid for it :D
