Is there an available backlit remote for the DIRECTV stream box?

The DIRECTV STREAM box is compatible with DIRECTV satellite remotes so yes.

You can use the RC66RBX remote or the RC73B remote.

The Dtv Stream box remote is backlit. Light doesn't stay on very long, though. Only when you are pressing buttons.

For the moment, DIRECTV handles only standard remote controls. You can learn more about them in Explore Your DIRECTV STREAM Remote | DIRECTV STREAM Customer Service & Support, Get Help with Your DIRECTV STREAM Remote | DIRECTV STREAM Customer Service & Support. We'll be more than happy to help you with any other concerns. Jon, DIRECTV Community Specialist

As Ludwick577 indicates, you can use the backlit Directv satellite remote, which works well with the Directv Stream box.   The only feature you will lose in the Google Voice commands.  Walmart sells the remote for around $25.

Apparently there is new promotion confirmed by the official forum team.

https://forums.directv.com/conversations/directv-stream-setup-equipment/backlit-remote/6441077d4fedbd759cd317f0

To improve customer satisfaction and decrease churn, we are offering one Backlit remote or one Genie remote to separate targeted groups of customers at no cost. Customers that are eligible for this remote should receive a notification.
