'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


This Apple TV 4K remote alternative is just $24

Controlling your Apple TV is way easier when your remote has well-placed, functional buttons.
Written by StackCommerce, Partner

Although "It just works!" is Apple's motto, you probably sometimes wish its products were a bit more intuitive -- especially the Apple TV remote. If you're looking for a user-friendly remote for your Apple TV or Apple TV 4K, the Function101 Button Remote could be a good option for you -- and it's on sale at Stack Social for $24 right now when you use the code ENJOY20.

The Function101 Button Remote looks, feels, and functions exactly as a standard remote would. Its buttons are made of silicone for a familiar feel, and they're all thoughtfully laid out. The only thing missing is voice input.

The Function101 Button Remote uses standard infrared technology (IR), so you can synchronize it with your TV in seconds. Then, you can control everything on your TV, including the power, volume, and mute functions. Although IR does require a line of sight to control your Apple TV, it will work from as much as 39.3 feet away. That wide connectivity range means you can just sit back and relax as you enjoy your favorite entertainment.

While the Button Remote is compatible with the Apple TV & Apple TV 4K, it'll also work with most TV brands. 

If you want a more user-friendly primary or secondary remote for your Apple TV, get a Function101 Button Remote for Apple TV/Apple TV 4K now while it's on sale for $24 right now with the code ENJOY20.
