The Washington Post has this:

Best of all, owners of other recent-model Apple TVs don’t have to buy the whole new system to get the remote. Apple is selling the remote separately for $60. Apple TV 4K orders start April 30 and will be available in the second half of May.

I may look into that. I'd rather dictate to the remote if the alternative is to have to scroll and click letter-by-letter in order to type something, but the ring-style design on the new remote looks easier to use than the touchpad on the current one. (Of course, I can also pick up my phone and use that to type because the Apple TV will hand off control to my phone, but it doesn't do the same for my wife's, and she doesn't usually have her phone if she's at the downstairs TV anyway.)
