While “deep Siri integration” was touted as one of the headline features of the new Apple TV, it will initially only be limited to just five languages in eight countries.

9to5Mac reader Walter van Bergen, a commenter in our piece on the 200MB app size limit, noticed the text within the App Programming Guide for tvOS.

The Apple TV Remote comes in two flavors—one with Siri built in and the other with onscreen search capabilities. The Siri Remote is available in the following countries:

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • France
  • Germany
  • Japan
  • Spain
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

All other countries get a remote with an onscreen search button in place of the Siri button.

The Apple TV has been upgraded to 2GB and 801.11ac WiFi.
