Back in September, Griffin announced its first product for the fourth-generation Apple TV, a silicone case designed to protect the Apple TV Siri Remote. As of today, Griffin's Survivor Play remote control case is available for purchase.

The Survivor Play mimics the design of sleeves for the hand-held Wii Remote, wrapping the Siri Remote in a soft textured silicone that adds grip and padding that may save it from breaking should it be dropped on accident. The Siri Remote slips easily into the sleeve, which protects the back, the sides, and part of the front while still leaving the buttons, the built-in touch pad, and the Lightning port available for use.

At the back, there's a thick but ergonomic grip included, which Griffin says makes the Survivor Play easy and comfortable to hold on to even during long gameplay sessions.

Given that there have already been multiple reports from people who have broken the glass touch area on their Apple TV Siri Remotes, the Survivor Play is a useful accessory that could prove to be quite popular with Apple TV owners. Because it leaves the Lightning port open, it can be paired with a Remote Loop for even more peace of mind.

Griffin's Survivor Play for the Siri Remote can be purchased from the Griffin website for $19.99.

Perhaps there will be a case for Apple's new battery case...

Few things I don't like about the siri remote:
1. So small/slim that I keep having to look for it even though it's sitting right next to me when I'm in bed
2. When you pick it up, without looking at it, you can't tell which side is top/bottom
The case would have been a great benefit if it had a physical design to change #2 above.
Actually, if the case had been launched as originally designed, I might see your point about '#2 above', however, they greatly changed the design and extended the case to cover the smooth glass lower portion of the case. For me, that's plenty of both by-touch and visual indication when picking it up as to which way is correct :)
