Controller Options

Luckily, there are a few unique gaming controllers that work with Fire TV devices. I suggest the Matricom G-Pad BX Wireless Controller that uses Bluetooth technology to connect to your device.

Or, those with an Android Phone can install a remote control app using the steps below:
