Great Accessories for the Apple TV

Last updated:

The fourth-generation Apple TV continues to get better with each new software update. If you can’t get enough of the set-top streaming device, here are some great Apple TV accessories to take your tv to the next level.

A Great Way to Mount Your Apple TV

A perfect companion for a wall-mounted television, the Innovellis option attaches an Apple TV to the back of any set. It can hold the current-generation device or earlier Apple TVs. There are three different ways to use the mount. It can clip onto vents on the back of a TV, attach with special adhesive, or screw directly to a wall.

Protect Your Expensive Siri Remote

While the Siri Remote is a big step up from previous versions included with the Apple TV, there are some definite downsides. It’s small, easy to loose, and costs $79 to replace. But the Elago Intelli Case has more than a few tricks up its sleeve. Made from durable silicone, it can protect the remote from drops and other hazards. It also includes a lanyard to help keep the remote in-hand during those intense gaming sessions. My favorite feature is the powerful magnets that allows users to attach the remote to any metal surface, including many TVs.
