Enter text on Apple TV
There are several ways to enter text on Apple TV.
Use the onscreen keyboard
When a keyboard appears onscreen on Apple TV, use the Siri Remote to do any of the following:
Enter a character: Swipe across the Touch surface — or tap the left or right side of the Touch surface — to highlight an onscreen character, then press the Touch surface to select the character.
Change keyboards: Press the Play/Pause button , or swipe down and select uppercase, lowercase, numbers or special symbols.
Enter an alternate character (such as a letter with an accent mark): Highlight the character, then press and hold the Touch surface to select an option.
Use an iOS or iPadOS keyboard to type on Apple TV
Optionally, you can use your iOS or iPadOS device’s keyboard to enter text on Apple TV.
Whenever a text field appears on Apple TV, a notification appears on your iPhone or iPad.
On iPhone or iPad, tap the notification and enter text in the keyboard that appears.
Text you enter on the iOS or iPadOS device automatically appears in the text field on Apple TV.

Use the Siri Remote
Whenever you see a text entry field, you can use your voice instead of using the onscreen keyboard.
On the Siri Remote, press and hold the Siri button and say the text you want to enter. You can even speak individual characters — for example, when entering usernames and passwords.
