Frequently asked questions More FAQs

  • What do I get with Sky Multiscreen?

    Sky Multiscreen lets you enjoy your Sky TV channels in another room, so different family members can watch the shows they love at the same time. You'll need an extra Sky box and a Sky Multiscreen subscription (£11.25 a month extra) for every extra room you want to watch Sky TV in. Now including Sky Go Extra at no additional cost.

    > More about Sky Go Extra

  • Which channels can I watch with Sky Multiscreen?

    Your Sky Multiscreen service mirrors your main subscription. You can watch channels that are part of your subscription bundle, and record them if you have a Sky+ or Sky+HD box. Those programmes you purchase individually, such as Sky Box Office movies, sports matches and events, are only able to be viewed on the box they were booked on and will be billed individually.

    Sky Go Extra allows you to watch and download the channels available on Sky Go.

  • How many Sky boxes can I use from one dish?

    Your satellite dish can support up to eight "feeds" and the total number of boxes depends on the type you're using. Each Sky and Sky HD Multiscreen box requires a single feed/cable from the satellite. Sky+HD boxes each require two feeds/cables as they both allow you to watch one channel whilst recording another at the same time. Each box will need a separate Multiscreen subscription.

  • How much is the Sky HD Multiscreen box?

    Your first Sky HD Multiscreen box is free when taken with a new Sky Multiscreen subscription. Any additional Sky HD Multiscreen box will cost £49.

  • Do I need an HD subscription for each box?

    No. The Family Bundle for your entertainment channels and the HD Pack for your Sports and Movies channels cover all the HD ready boxes in your home.

  • What is Sky Go Extra?

    Sky Go Extra takes Sky Go one step further and lets you download your favourite Sky TV shows, depending on your subscription. Watch wherever you are, on up to four devices (selected tablets, smartphones and laptops). Sky Go Extra, without Sky Multiscreen, is currently £5 a month.

  • I have Multiscreen - why can't I access Sky Go Extra?

    If you are an existing Sky Multiscreen customer, you will need to opt-in to receive the Sky Go Extra benefit. You can do this by visiting Sky Go Extra and adding the product to your account. You will also need to download the Sky Go app from the iTunes App Store or Google Play.

  • If I cancel Multiscreen will I still get Sky Go Extra?

    Yes. If you end your Sky Multiscreen subscription, after opting to receive Sky Go Extra as a benefit, you will revert to paying the current standard price (£5 per month) for Sky Go Extra from that point.
