How many times have you tried to find a program on your local cable system using your remote control? Or tried searching for movies on Netflix using your Amazon Fire TV remote? The remotes are not designed for you to input a name of a program or movie, but they are good for turning your system on/off or the TV's volume. Today, Logitech brings a new solution to make this easier for smart TV owners. Welcome, the Logitech® K600 TV Keyboard with Integrated Touchpad and D-Pad, a versatile all-in-one keyboard that unlocks the full computing capabilities of the TV. This new wireless keyboard makes it easy for consumers to search for content on their TV or streaming media services. It also helps you navigate menus and the web on your smart TV.
