Later this month, Sony makes Netflix and chill even easier with $30 remote

If you’re a PS4 owner, Sony has a new toy for you.

accessories-universal-media-remote-for-ps4-screen-06-ps4-us-05oct15What a time to be alive! Sony unveiled their Universal Media Remote for PS4. As well as your typical remote-based features, the UMR will feature programmable buttons that will at launch be able to be set for:

  • Blu-ray Disc Player
  • Crunchyroll
  • FUNimation
  • HBO GO
  • Media Player
  • NBA GAME TIME
  • Netflix
  • NFL Sunday Ticket
  • PlayStation Video
  • PlayStation Vue
  • Twitch
  • YouTube

More will be coming later (no WWE app?! I will not stand for this!)

As it controls up to 4 devices at one time, including cable boxes and the TV, it’ll be great to finally hide all the remotes in my living room and finally have one master control.

The remote will be available for $30 and is Bluetooth, so I’d most definitely hop on Amazon right now and get that bad boy ordered. After all, you wanna impress bae, right?
