  • Setting up Sky+ is really simple

    To make the most of Sky+, including Catch Up TV at no extra cost, you need to connect your compatible Sky+HD box to your broadband router.

    You can do this even if your box and broadband router aren’t in the same room or you don’t have Sky Broadband.

    There are three options to set up Sky+.

  • Setting up Sky+

    It's easy to get started with Sky+. First, you need to check if you have a compatible Sky+HD box.

    Then, press 'tv guide' on your Sky remote and select Catch Up TV. If you're not connected, you'll see a message asking you to connect your Sky+HD box to broadband (like the image on the right).

    Click the tabs above to see the three ways you can connect.

    If your compatible Sky+HD box and broadband router are in different rooms, or you'd rather avoid wires, you can connect them wirelessly with our On Demand Connector.

    If you are new to Sky TV, or already have one of our newer Sky+HD boxes with built-in Wi-Fi (look for the WPS button), then you won't need one.
