Use these steps to pair a Bluetooth accessory to your Apple TV (4th generation):

Some Bluetooth accessories aren’t supported on Apple TV (4th generation), including Bluetooth keyboards.

Unpair your Bluetooth accessory

On your Apple TV (4th generation), go to Settings > Remotes and Devices > Bluetooth. Select your accessory, then select Forget Device.

Your Apple TV (4th generation) can support several Bluetooth controllers simultaneously, up to this many:

  • One Siri Remote or Apple TV Remote
  • Two MFi (Made for iOS) Bluetooth controllers, or one MFi Bluetooth controller and one Bluetooth audio accessory (like headphones or speakers)

You might be able to pair more accessories, but at some point you may need to unpair other accessories to allow for new ones.
