Griffin Unveils 'Survivor Play' Case for Apple TV Siri Remote

Griffin today debuted its first accessory for the Apple TV, introducing a new case designed for the Siri Remote. The Survivor Play for Siri Remote aims to add protection to keep it safe from scratches and dings when dropped and it adds a non-slip grip to make it easier to hold when playing motion-based games that require a lot of movement.

The Survivor Play, which is made of a soft, textured silicone, fits around the back of the Siri Remote and is similar to the wide variety Wii Remote skins that make the Nintendo controller easier to hold during gameplay. According to Griffin, the Survivor Play was designed primarily with gameplay in mind, adding extra thick grips to make it more comfortable to hold.
Now that Apple TV has added gaming, your Siri Remote will be working harder than ever. Survivor Play was designed with gaming in mind. Its easy-to grip shape surrounds the remote's back and edges with impact-absorbing silicone. So just in case things get rowdy while you're playing Beat Sports, your Siri Remote stays safe.
The case also adds cushioning and protection for the edges and the corners of the Siri Remote, the places most likely to be damaged should the remote be dropped or flung across the room during a heated gameplay session. Because it wraps around the back, the Survivor Play leaves the Siri Remote buttons, touchscreen, microphones, and Lightning port easily accessible.

When it launches later this fall, the Griffin Survivor Play for the Siri Remote will be priced at $19.99.

At this rate, pretty soon we'll have a case for our cases.

Yikes! $20 for a plastic cover? Who cares that much about keeping their TV REMOTE in perfect condition?

Yeah, this is a bit ridiculous. Not everything made by Apple needs a protective case put on it... particularly when it covers the back, which will spend 90% of its time unseen, sitting on a coffee table.


I'd buy to increase the grip rather than for protection. That remote is tiny, and presumably very slippery.

That being said, the price is downright ridiculous.

20 bucks for a piece of silicone covering such a small remote is hilarious.

I can get TPU shells for my Wii U gamepad for less.
Licensed products even, not a knockoff.

Why must everything with an Apple logo on it get wrapped up in cases, protectors and bubble wrap? People need to baby their things less and enjoy them more.

Up next. Bubble wrap for the Apple Pencil!

I'm not buying an Apple TV until I can get a battery case and a screen protector for the remote. (And I don't care that it doesn't actually have a display, I just want to feel that it's protected anyways!)
