Please be aware

We’re doing our best to adapt to the current situation and wanted to update you as staying connected is now even more important.

As Covid-19 has changed our everyday norms, we’re prioritising those who need us most, and we’ll be answering their calls first:

  • our vulnerable and isolated customers
  • those over 70
  • customers unable to access their Sky services

We hope this gives you peace of mind if you, or your friends and family, fall into any of these categories.

We’re trying to answer all calls as quickly as we can but, like many other businesses, we’re having to work differently.

If you need our help there are online guides that over 90% of our customers have found useful. You can find them on We can help those in need, as well as everyone else, much faster if we only receive urgent calls.

And with us all likely to be spending more time at home in the coming months, we're also doing a few extra things to make your Sky TV experience even better. For more information, go to

You can also ask questions and get help from other Sky customers on Sky Community. Sky experts are currently available here, but responses are not immediate and won’t be able to help if your question’s specifically related to your Sky account. Go to to take a look.

Calling hospital (0872) numbers during the COVID-19 pandemic

If you’re a Sky Mobile customer, you can now call your loved ones in hospital (on 0872 numbers) for less. We’ve removed any charges from our side, so you’ll only be charged 13p per minute by Hospedia (who provide the bedside phones). This is to cover the cost of running the service.
