How to use a Bluetooth keyboard with the Apple TV

Dan Frakes | May 29, 2013
The Apple TV's included remote is easy to use but limiting, while Apple's Remote app for iOS requires that you have an expensive iOS device on hand and available. Ultimately a Bluetooth keyboard, even an inexpensive third-party model, may be the best Apple TV remote of all.

I have as much inside information as the next tech pundit (read: none) but the optimist and technology fan in me hopes that this is yet another step—along with the gradual addition of more content apps, such as Hulu Plus, MLB, and Flickr—toward Apple opening up the Apple TV to real third-party apps. After all, some of those apps will surely require more than cursory text entry, and maybe a few will even beg for a physical keyboard.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Except when I'm typing on my Apple TV.
