Here is what the Xbox Wire had to say about the Xbox One Media Remote:

“…it lets you control video playback for Blu-ray movies and streaming video on Xbox One. Additionally, there are dedicated Back and OneGuide buttons. The OneGuide button provides one-touch, quick access to your favorite TV shows and movies through the Xbox program guide. This simple, yet powerful remote is designed to help you listen, watch and switch among experiences instantly.

The Media Remote can also control TV/Receiver power and volume through Kinect, which uses IR blasting to send signals to your TV and/or receiver. The easy-to-use remote control has a familiar design with a soft, silicone finish that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. As soon as you pick up the remote, the motion-activated backlit buttons illuminate, allowing it to be used in the darkest of rooms while playing games, watching TV shows, movies and more”.

The Xbox One Media Remote will retail for $24.99 ERP in the US and available in stores around the world early March.
