While the remote for the Apple TV is sleek, responsive and pretty, the buttons can be hard to distinguish sometimes. This small remote can be difficult to handle and keep track of, too. However, with a good Apple TV remote case, you can fix all of that and add a little character to your remote in the process. The best part is they aren’t very expensive.

At $8, this Kutop remote case is one of the cheaper options. It’s made of a durable silicone, has a honeycomb back, making it easy to hold, and an integrated lanyard so you can easily hang it up. We picked it up in green so it would be easy to spot in a darkened home theater, but it’s available in plenty of other colors. This case is also sold under the Sahiyeah brand for $1 more, so it’s not unique to Kutop.
