With the use of an HDMI cable, you can easily connect your Apple TV directly to your television. In case you have one of those receivers, then you should plug in your Apple TV into your receiver, and with another HDMI cable, you get to connect the receiver and television next.


Step 3: Pair and connect

This next step requires you to navigate through your Apple TV’s menu and find the pairing screen. When you see a notification saying “Pair Your Remote screen” what you should do next is tap the Touch surface of your Siri Remote/ Apple TV Remote.

Take note that if your Apple TV remote can’t connect the first time around, a message will pop up saying that you should bring the remote closer to your Apple TV. What you should do if that message comes up is careful press and hold the Menu and Volume Up buttons of your remote for two seconds.


Step 4: Language

Browse through a list of languages available and choose what country or region you are in.


After all of that, finish up by selecting one of these options. Either “Set Up with Device” or “Set Up Manually”.
