I think it be nice to have a app for very small devices like watches. Not as a true remote control but just to augment the remote control. Once watching a stream you could use a function on the wrist to pause fast forward or rewind.

I’m sure the member of our dev team that went out and bought an Apple Watch on day 1 would agree with you… However, I think we’ll be focusing on bigger screens for the time being
I concur, TabloTV! IMO, the ‘remote’ apps should actually be more associated with ROKU, Amazon, or whatever front end is being used. I use the Roku remote on my phone regularly, and I do agree it would be cool to develop that same app for a smartwatch!
