With Sky Multiscreen:
- You can watch different Sky channels on different TVs at the same time. All the channels you subscribe to are available on all Sky boxes, and you can have four Sky boxes or eight Sky Multiscreen boxes running from the same dish.
- Get Sky Go Extra at no added cost, and watch live TV or download on demand shows on up to four computers, mobiles or tablets (in line with your TV subscription).
- Each Sky box has its own parental controls, so you can restrict viewing on one box without affecting the others. For more information, read our Set up parental controls on your TV article.
What do I need for Sky Multiscreen?
To enjoy Sky Multiscreen, each TV in your house needs its own Sky box and they must all be connected to the same phone line, unless you activated your viewing card after 17 December 2013, in which case no phone line connection is needed. However, make sure your boxes are connected to your broadband network where possible.
To use Sky Multiscreen you will need to be using a Sky Q box. Upgrade to Sky Q online here.
Sky Store and Sky Box Office
Sky Store rentals and Sky Box Office events can only be viewed on the Sky box on which they were ordered, and your box will need to be connected to broadband to view and download these. If you wish to view them on another Sky box, you’d need to order and pay for them again on that other box.
