Using the Logitech Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboard with Apple TV

Since the availability of Apple software 5.2, it is now possible to control your Apple TV using the Logitech Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboard.

The keyboard is ideal to use with Apple TV because of its Easy-Switch and illumination features.

  • Easy-Switch let’s you quickly switch between Apple devices, so you can use the keyboard on a desk with your Mac and then bring it into the living room to use with Apple TV.
  • The Illuminated keys help you see what you’re typing - especially useful if you’re navigating your iTunes content in the dark,
