A common complaint is that it’s impossible to turn off your TV with the Sky Q remote.

But that’s just not true – it just takes a bit of know-how.

It’s true that pressing the Sky Q remote button turns off your Sky box.

However, you can also turn off your TV with a simple tweak.

Instead of a quick press, press and hold the power button on the Sky Q remote for a few seconds.

This will turn off your Sky Q box and also put the TV on standby.

That’s not the only Sky TV remote control trick you need to know.

If you’ve ever used the Sky TV guide, finding exactly what you want can sometimes feel like a pain.

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.
