Sky Useful Pages: Sky TV Help
Choosing Sky as your pay-TV provider is one of the best decisions you can make when you’re making a house a home. Thanks to an unparalleled number of channels, superb curation, great customer service support and unbeatable movie and sports coverage, Sky makes a compelling choice.
Of course, that’s all before you even get to the technology Sky include in our packages. Since its launch in 2001, Sky+ has become the standard bearer for all TV platforms in the UK. That’s thanks to its intuitive recording system, excellent recommendations, the ability to play, pause, rewind and fast forward and, most recently, stream video on demand.

That’s where Sky’s TV Help page comes in handy – it’s a step by step guide to setting up your Sky+HD box. But how do you navigate the page?
