How do I get Sky Store?

  • To use Sky Store first make sure your Sky+HD box is connected to your home broadband network, and select Sky Store on your homepage. Once inside, you can choose movies in HD to buy or rent.

    There are three ways to connect and you can do so with any broadband provider.

    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.

  • Our best ever Sky+HD boxes
    with built-in Wi-Fi

    Our latest boxes mean you can connect to your broadband router simply by pressing the WPS button on your box and your router, or by entering your Wi-Fi password.

    This means that your Sky+HD box and broadband router don’t need to be in the same room.

    If your Sky+HD box is next to your broadband router, you can connect them using a wire.

    All you need is an Ethernet cable, available from Sky or from most electrical shops, and you can start watching even more great entertainment.
