This eliminates the hassle of carrying multiple remotes at the same time. The steps below will guide you on how to program your Fire TV add on.

There are different versions of the universal TV remote but the one by Piggybank is the most recommended because of the ease with which it fits with the Fire TV without increasing the bulkiness of the remote.

4. Remove Battery Protector
At the base of the piggyback remote you will find the 'Battery Protector'. Pull it out and insert the suitable battery in the slot.

5. Align your TV and Piggyback TV Remote
