Verizon has the first discount that we've tracked on the brand new Siri Remote, priced at $49.97, down from $59.00. The Siri Remote launches tomorrow, and Verizon is offering free two-day shipping for shoppers in the United States (excluding Hawaii and Alaska).

After you add the Siri Remote to your cart, Verizon's website will indicate a costly shipping estimate. To see free shipping, enter your address and click "update." Verizon's cart will then show a few shipping methods, which will include a few free options.

There are a lot of changes to the new Siri Remote, now featuring a one-piece aluminum body, tactile clickpad with five-way navigtation, and rearranged buttons. The clickpad also supports touch gestures, with the outer ring supporting a circular "jog" gesture that Apple says will help you find the exact spot you're looking for in a video.

The Siri Remote is larger than the prior version and it includes a dedicated power button that controls a TV's power. It also includes volume buttons, a mute button, an option for pausing and fast forwarding, and a menu button. Additionally, there's a side button for activating Siri.

The new version of the Siri Remote is compatible with the previous generation Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD. This makes it perfect for anyone who has a 2017 Apple TV model and doesn't feel the need to purchase the new model, but still wants the upgraded Siri Remote.

In what way better softtware? I have an appletv hd and an amazon 4k firetv (the tv itself not a stick).
In general tvOS is the most fluid, most responsive, and most intuitive. It looks really nice in light and dark mode. Amazing screensavers. Siri is (uncharacteristically) excellent at searching for content across all services, and can narrow results by actors, directors, year, genre, etc. The TV app is actually quite good, and allows you to add shows to your queue from every streaming app I've encountered (Netflix being the only exception). The picture and audio quality are second to none. And if you have other Apple devices, it works seamlessly with them and all Apple services—AirPlay, Photos, Music, Podcasts, etc.

Cancel all your apple orders now and order from Verizon. No brainer. (For the financially 'conscious' consumer :] )
I got some Belkin accessories 60% cheaper from Verizon! Also, one of my credit cards has a $50 cash back on a $55 purchase from a Verizon store. That would make this remote damn near free!!

With all the Roku, Firestick and Google devices that do the exact same thing for less than the cost of the Apple TV remote, not to mention the new smart TVs that have AirPlay 2 built in I don’t understand the point of this over-priced device.
