  • 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, from the Homepage go to the Catch Up TV section. If you're not connected you’ll get an on screen message saying you need to connect your Sky+HD box to broadband (like the image on the right).

    You then have three options to set up Sky+.

  • Get an On Demand Connector

    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’ve never downloaded a TV show or movie on demand, you can sign up for a free On Demand Connector.

    If you've downloaded from on demand before, you can still get an On Demand Connector.
