Question: Passwords on Apple TV

Why can't I always require a password on Apple TV and authenticate using Touch ID on my iPhone?

It is an interesting idea. Use Feedback - Apple TV - Apple to suggest it to Apple. I have it set up so that it remembers my password, but I have to use a 4-digit pin. Means I can't make a purchase by accident but I don't have to type in a 20 character password using that awkward keyboard mechanism.
