The Piggyback Remote for the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick Voice Remote by Mission Cables is now available. The Piggyback Remote is a universal remote that attaches to the back of the Fire TV remote. Earlier this year I reviewed the Piggyback Remote for the Non-Voice Fire TV Stick Remote and was impressed by it. My biggest complaint was that it was not available for the voice remote, but now it is. The Piggyback remote has 5 programmable buttons that can be taught to replicate any button from an IR remote you already own. This new voice remote model works with all voice remotes except the 1st generation Fire TV’s remote. Basically, if your voice remote’s battery door slides on, as opposed to clips on, then this new Piggyback Remote will work for you. The Piggyback Remote is regularly priced at $19.99, but is currently on sale for $14.99.
