Switch on your Sky+HD box and TV in one go

With one touch of the sky button on your Sky remote, you’ll be able to turn on your Sky+HD box and a compatible TV directly from standby in one go and switch your TV to the correct HDMI input. We call this HDMI One-Touch-Play.

When you press the sky, tv guide, box office, services or interactive button on your Sky remote and when your TV is on a different HDMI input such as DVD, freeview or a games console, it will switch your TV to the correct HDMI input so that you can watch Sky TV straight away.

Please note: This feature doesn’t turn off your TV when you put your Sky+HD box into standby.
