MASTERING your Sky TV remote control is key to becoming a TV pro.
There are many hidden tricks you may have overlooked – and one in particular comes in handy.
One of the best tricks is letting you instantly go back to a channel you were just watching.
We’ve all been there: you start watching a new channel and then immediately regret it.
Or maybe you just needed to switch to a channel for a very short time.
This can happen when you switch between channels quickly.
Either way, your Sky Q remote has a simple shortcut to solve your problem.
Just swipe right on the touchpad remote control.
This will bring up a screen below where you can select your previous channel.
This means you can quickly switch between two channels with minimal effort.
Of course, there are plenty of other Sky TV remote control tricks you might want to learn.
Skim the guide
If you’ve ever used the Sky TV guide, finding exactly what you want can sometimes feel like a pain.
Luckily, there are a few remote control tricks you can use to quickly jump around.
If you press the fast-forward button on a Sky Q remote, you can skip forward 24 hours in the guide.
That means you can see what’s going on tomorrow (and beyond) in seconds.
If you click rewind, you will also be transported back 24 hours.
If you want to dive deep into the guide and know what’s on, just hit the play button.
This could shave minutes off your daily browsing if you remember to use the shortcuts.
Hide in plain sight
And here’s another trick.
Your Sky TV remote has a secret button you probably didn’t know about.
It serves a very useful purpose: viewing your recorded TV shows and movies.
It saves you from digging through your box’s various menus to find the content you saved for later.
We’re talking about the Sky logo – yes, it’s a button!
Press it to bring up your recordings, which is anything you’ve chosen to download and save for later.
