The Sideclick Universal Remote Attachment is on sale for $14.99 at Best Buy. This price matches the lowest price that the Sideclick has ever been. The Sideclick clips on to the side of your Fire TV remote to give you quick access to a column of 8 programmable buttons. Even though the buttons have labels, they can actually be used to replicate any function of your existing remotes. The Sideclick is programmed by pointing your existing remote at it to teach it the correct commands, so you can use multiple remotes to program the various buttons. The Sideclick is compatible with ALL Fire TV remotes, new and old. This includes the new Alexa Voice Remote that comes with power and volume buttons. The only remotes that it does not work with are the Fire TV Edition television remotes from Element, Westinghouse, Toshiba, and Insignia. Also on sale for the same $14.99 price are the Apple TV Sideclick and the Roku Sideclick. Sideclick for Fire TV, and thoers, is also on sale at Amazon for $19.99 if the Best Buy deal ends or sells out.
Fantastic! Thanks for the heads up. I considered it for $20 and passed, but at $15 I can’t resist.
I love mine! If you’ve got a FireTV device with the older remotes, highly recommend it!
*sigh* here we go again with aftvnews peddling this cr@p. Really people, nothing to see here…
Wow, how sour are those grapes tasting over there?
On a more serious note, the Sideclick remote has been invaluable to me. This is a great tool for all FTV owners, especially those like me who have perfectly fine 2nd gen boxes and won’t be upgrading to the new 4K stick with remote integration. I have trimmed my remotes from three down to one because of this attachment. It’s been flawless since day one and I recommend it to anyone else in my spot.
Why wouldn’t Elias talk about Fire TV accessories that help the end user’s experience?
Agreed with Nate, I got mine through the original crowdsource (forget which one) and haven’t regretted it for a second. Great device that I use everyday. If this one stopped working or I needed another, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy one.
I have to suspect that Trevor has no actual knowledge of the device and is just a crank.
Looks like an a very useful device. Does it retain the memory when swapping batteries or do you have to reprogram it all over again?
