Couch proof

Logitech Keys-to-Go Ultra Slim Keyboard with iPhone Stand

Staff Pick

When it comes to lounging around on the couch with a keyboard, you can't beat this one. It's small, lightweight, and spill-proof! The spill-proof aspect is key for me because there are usually snacks and drinks involved in our family's Apple TV binges.

The original

Apple Magic Keyboard - US English

Apple TV, Apple Magic Keyboard, right? Right! It's compact and looks like it might move around on you, but it's fantastically stable (I type on one all day long), lightweight, large enough to type comfortably, but small enough to be unobtrusive. So, if you're looking for a standout performer in terms of connectivity, overall feel, and size, Apple's Magic Keyboard is a perfect pairing to your Apple TV!

Bottom line

Entering text on the Apple TV with just the Siri Remote is a bummer for sure. Make movie night easier and more relaxing with one of the best Apple TV Bluetooth keyboards to take the headache out of typing in the Apple TV interface. My pick would have to be the Logitech Keys-to-Go because it will weather any messy movie night my family may throw at it.

If you'd prefer to replace your Apple TV remote altogether with a typeable solution, the iPazzPort will do all of the above. No need to switch between remote and keyboard! However, if budget is your priority, you may prefer the very affordable Rii Mini Wireless Keyboard, which is also small and compact.
