Did you know that Sky’s remote control is packed with secret hacks designed to make your TV time that little bit easier?
Whether it’s a lost remote control or special shortcuts for browsing, these little tricks are worth knowing if you have them sky Q.
Find lost Sky remote control
Losing the remote control is one of those frustrating moments we’ve all gone through.
But it doesn’t have to be.
There’s actually a smart way to find your remote instantly thanks to a built-in beeper speaker.
It sounds for 30 seconds.
All you have to do is press the Q button on the front of your sky Q Crate.
If it doesn’t work at all, your Sky Q remote control battery may be dead.
It is also possible that the Sky Q remote is no longer in the building and cannot be reached by the Sky Q box.
Find shipments faster
Of course, when searching for shows, voice search is best – if it understands what you said – but it’s not for everyone.
However, it is also a bit tedious to type everything.
This little tip might help.
You’ll notice that each number has multiple letters on the remote, something we’ve all seen on phones before.
Well, it turns out these can also be used for quick tapping on Sky Q.
So you can tap the number 2 once for A, twice for B, and three times for C, etc.
Get a better idea of how it’s done in the video below.
Go back to the last channel
There’s also a clever hack to quickly go back to the last channel you were on without entering the number.
With the standard remote control, all you have to do is press the right blue button.
Swipe right on a touch control.
When the channel is displayed, press the center button and you’re good to go.
