Thursdays, 9pm

Installation day

A Sky engineer will ring you the day before, or the morning of installation to confirm their arrival time.

Upon arrival, the engineer will advise you on the best place for your dish to go.

On average, standard installation lasts no longer than an hour.

When your dish and box are set up, you'll be given a demo on how to use Sky TV, including how to get TV on demand and rewind live TV.

Setting up Sky Q Multiscreen

Sky Q Mini boxes don't connect to your dish, so you can access what's on your main box in any room, without messing about drilling holes.
 

1. Plug the pink end of the HDMI cable into the pink port of your Sky Q Mini box and plug the other end into your TV.

2. Plug the blue end of the black power cable into the blue port of your Sky Q Mini box. Plug the other end into the power socket.

3. Turn on your Sky Q Mini box, making sure your TV is switched to the correct input source.

4. Follow the on-screen instructions to connect your Sky Q Mini box to your Sky Q box.
