Box Upgrade FAQs

  • How do I upgrade my box(es)?

    • To upgrade your current box, sign in to find out which boxes are available to you, choose the box you would like to upgrade to and then go to our secure checkout to complete your order.

        

  • Can I choose a time slot for engineer set-up?

    • When you are booking your installation you will be able to choose from a list of available dates. We will do our best to install Sky on the date you select and will confirm the date by email once your order has been processed.

      If available, you can request a morning or afternoon installation time when you place your order, either between 8am and 1pm, or between 12pm and 5pm otherwise our 'all-day call' policy applies. Our engineer will arrive on site during the time period requested but the installation may continue past that. You don't need to call us to confirm your appointment unless you need to rearrange it or we have your details listed incorrectly.

  • Can I watch programmes in high definition on a Sky+ box or a new SkyHD box?

    • If you have an HD-ready TV and the latest black Sky+ box or the new SkyHD box you are able to watch free-to-air HD channels.

      To access Sky's range of HD programming, you will need a SkyHD box, a black Sky+ or a Sky+HD box together with an HD Pack subscription. The channels you receive with the HD Pack depend on your Sky TV bundle.

  • Can I watch programmes TV on demand on any Sky boxes?

    • Our most up-to-date Sky+, Sky+HD and Sky+HD 2TB boxes have built in Wi-Fi capability, so  they're easy to connect to your broadband router, making access to TV on demand simple.

      The services you receive come at no extra monthly cost and depend on your Sky TV bundle.

      Find out more about setting up.

  • Can I get a replacement box rather than an upgrade?

    • If there is a fault with your Sky box which you are not responsible for we can replace it with the same box. However if the fault does not lie with Sky you will need to order and pay for a replacement.
