How to change Apple TV (Gen 2) wifi network without a remote or remote app?

I

iMore Question

I recently moved and now have a new wifi network, however because my Apple TV is still on my old network the remote app will not recognize my apple tv, and therefore I can't use it to control the apple tv. I also do not have an apple remote and I am trying to figure out how to change the wifi network so my remote app will work. Is there a way to do this without using either?

You’ll need one or the other.
Best thing is the remote but if not then reset the ATV and you’ll be able to use the app to set it up again.

Welcome to iMore!

If you do not have access to your Siri Remote then you'll need to factory reset your Apple TV. Using a USB cable hook it up to your Mac or PC and reset it using iTunes. This way you can set up your new WiFi within your Apple TV and continue to use the Apple TV app.

A new Siri Remote should be at the top of your Christmas list. ;)
