Connect Bluetooth devices to Apple TV
You may want to connect a Bluetooth® device to your Apple TV—such as an MFi-certified (made for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad) game controller, a Sony PlayStation–compatible controller, a Microsoft Xbox–compatible controller, Bluetooth headphones, a wireless keyboard, or another accessory.
Apple AirPods connect automatically to Apple TV if they’re associated with the same Apple ID. See Set up your Apple ID on Apple TV.

You can also customize controls for specific apps.

Customize the game controller: Select Customization, then select On.
Customize a specific app for the game controller: Select the app from the list beneath App Customization.
A list of customizable controls appears with a diagram of the game controller.
Navigate up or down to highlight controls in the list.
As you highlight a control, its corresponding button is also highlighted on the diagram for reference.
Select the control you want, then select any of the available options for the control.
To restore default settings, scroll to the bottom of the list, then select Restore Defaults.
