Connect the Siri Remote to Apple TV

The Siri Remote comes automatically paired with your Apple TV. If it disconnects or you get a replacement remote, you’ll need to manually pair it to Apple TV.

You can pair the Siri Remote with only one Apple TV at a time. When you pair a remote, any other paired remote is automatically unpaired.

Pair the Siri Remote with Apple TV

  1. Turn on Apple TV and position the Siri Remote so it’s within 3 to 4 inches (8 to 10 cm) and pointing at the front of Apple TV.

  2. Press and hold the  Menu button button and the Volume Up button Volume Up button for 2 seconds.

    When the Siri Remote is successfully paired, an onscreen message appears.
