That’s $5 off the regular price of $29.99 and the second lowest price this remote has been.

Sideclick Remote for Fire TV & Fire TV Stick is now available exclusively at Best Buy

sideclick-review-all-fire-tv-remotes-header-800

Sideclick, the universal remote that attaches to the side of any Fire TV remote, is now available exclusively at Best Buy. Several people have asked me if I knew when the Sideclick would come back in stock at Amazon. While I don’t know the answer to that question, I can now tell you that the reason it’s out of stock everywhere is because, in order to get the Sideclick remote onto Best Buy’s shelves, the husband and wife team behind the successful Kickstarter project had to give Best Buy a period where they were the exclusive online retailers of the product. So, for the time being, Best Buy’s website is the only place you can buy the Sideclick remote. If you’re not familiar with the product, read my review. I’m a big fan of the Sideclick and it has had a permanent home on my main Fire TV in my livingroom.

I had a chance to review the prototype last year, but now that I’ve used the final product, I can pleasently say it’s the best purchase a Fire TV owner can make, if they want to reduce the number of remotes they use, without losing any Fire TV functionality.

The initial campaign failed but Brett Epstein, the mechanical engineer behind the project, took what he learned from the first campaign back to the drawing board and reluanched with an improved design that rocketed past their new campaign goal in just a week.

sideclick-v2-fire-tv-and-stick-remotes

Sideclick, the unsuccessful Kickstart project that set out to reduce your remote control clutter by attaching a set of 8 programmable buttons to any Fire TV or Fire TV Stick remote, will be relaunching their campaign tonight, July 15th, at 10pm Eastern. There will be a limited number of “Super Early Bird” and “Early Bird” discounted units offered, so mark your calendar or yell at Alexa/Siri/Google/Cortana to remind you to be online tonight when the doors open. You’ll be able to find the new campaign here once it goes live.

The improved Sideclick design now has 8 programmable buttons instead of 6. It also uses a new clipping mechanism which lets you use the exact same Sideclick remote with Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Roku, Apple TV, and Nexus Player remotes. Each streaming box remote now has its own custom clip, instead of an entirely unique Sideclick remote.
