Siri Remote Control
With Siri, you can quickly search for a movie or TV show across popular services, including content apps such as iTunes and Netflix. All your viewing options are displayed on the screen, so you can see where a movie or show can be found. You’ll also see if it’s available to rent, buy, or watch with a subscription. Dual microphones allow Siri to hear your commands clearly, even if there’s background noise.
You can also ask Siri to show sports scores, control playback, pull up the weather, access settings, and even check stocks. Tell Siri to turn on Enhanced Speech, which boosts dialogue and softens music and sound effects for late night viewing. Or if you can’t understand a line from a show, ask “What did she just say?” and Siri will skip back and temporarily turn on closed captioning, so you can see what you missed.
Touch Siri Remote Surface
The Siri Remote has a glass Touch surface, so you can use your thumb to swipe, scroll, select, and easily navigate around your screen. Simply click anywhere on the glass Touch surface to make your selection. Instead of using traditional fast-forward or rewind buttons, just swipe across the timeline and use the preview frames to pinpoint where you want to go. Every move you make on the remote’s Touch surface is mirrored on your television screen. As an added convenience, the Siri Remote can control the volume on your TV or A/V receiver.
