Using the Mini Guide

If you're watching live TV, bring up the Mini Guide to find out what's on now and later. When watching TV on demand, you can use the Mini Guide to browse and download other shows or movies.

And you can do all this without interrupting your viewing.

During live TV

Press the touchpad or select button when watching live TV to see details of the show you're watching.

Scroll right to see what's on later. Scroll up and down or enter a channel number for information about programmes on another channel, including a live preview of what's currently on. 

For quick access to your Favourites or HD specific channels, scroll left when in the Mini Guide and select from the menu options. When you then scroll right, you can navigate through the channel list and press select to change channel. 

PIN-protected shows will have a padlock next to their name.


Record or add a show while watching live TV

  • For Sky Q: press on your Sky Q remote.
  • For Sky Glass: press the + Playlist button on your Sky remote. A tick icon will show when it's been added.

If the show’s part of a series:

  • For Sky Q: the "Record series" icon will appear and all episodes will be recorded, including future series when available. Press again if you only want to record that episode.
  • For Sky Glass: the "Series added" icon will appear and each available episode will be added automatically. Press the + button again if you only want to add that episode.

To record or add a show that’s on later or on a different channel, bring up the Mini Guide first, find the show you want, and press or the + Playlist button.
