Logitech’s great Apple TV remote alternative Harmony Elite on sale

There are very few options that can replace the Siri Remote that comes with your Apple TV and actually gives you even better control of it and your television. The Logitech Harmony Elite remote control is that device and surprise, surprise it’s on sale for Christmas for a limited time at 34 percent off on Amazon.

That brings its price down from $349.99 to $229.99, the lowest price we’ve seen by about $10.

It supports all Apple TV gestures – swipe up, swipe down, swipe left, swipe right – and controls your TV volume and native menus from any room without line of sight. As fellow reviewer Scott Blanchard at StreamBuzz.net said in a recent review, “This is hands down the best remote you can buy for an Apple TV.”

The companion Harmony App turns iOS and Android smartphones/tablets into personal universal remotes.

Other great features…

● Combined home entertainment and connected home control
● Works with Alexa for Voice control
● Controls up to 15 devices from set-top boxes to Philips Hue lights

    Remote more expensive than Apple TV itself…

    • Brad Gibson says:

      But (1) being that you can use it with future Apple TV devices, and (2) it will control your TV in ways the Apple Siri remote can’t do now and in the future, the investment is not a one-time thing.
