The Apple TV serial number may be required when registering the device or contacting support. But how do you find the serial number of the Apple TV? In the following I have put together various options. If the TV box from Cupertino works, you can read out the corresponding information in the menu, for example via the settings. If the device no longer outputs a video signal, you don't have to despair - I also have a tip for this where you can look for the serial number of the Apple TV.
The easiest way to operate the device is of course via the settings. To do this, first call the menu item Settings on. Then choose General and subsequently Info. In addition to the device name, you will also find the exact model and number as well as the serial number as the next point. You can also read the tvOS version and details about the WiFi connection there. Here is an example image from the Apple website:

You will find information such as “Designed by Apple in California”, “Assembled in China”, the model number and the like. Finally there is also "Serial" followed by the serial number of the Apple TV:
Find out the serial number of the Siri Remote
Both the Apple TV HD and the Apple TV 4K come with the same remote control. Where Siri can be used, it is called "Siri Remote". In countries and regions where Siri is not available, it is called "Apple TV Remote". Both models also have a serial number that you can call up when used in a region and language for which Siri is available. You then use the menu with the following points: Settings -> Remote controls and devices -> Remote Control.
