Apple TV is a best-in-class streaming box with a polarizing remote. While Swiss firm Salt chose the Apple TV to bundle with its broadband fiber TV service, they found the remote to be a problem for some customers. So they made their own. Developed in collaboration with Apple, the new remote is a celebration of mundane usability, with physical buttons for things like pause, rewind, fast-forward, stop, up, down, left, right, power, and select. Thanks to Apple's help, it works right out of the box without any pairing, and while it lacks a microphone and dedicated Siri button, the tradeoff is well worth it for many Apple TV users — even those that aren't Salt customers.
