What do I need to get started with Sky On Demand?

To start enjoying Sky On Demand services, including Catch Up TV, you will need:

Do I need an engineer to help me set up Sky On Demand?

No. You can easily do it yourself. To get started, all you need to do is connect your Sky + or Sky + HD box to your wireless router using an Ethernet cable.

How do I set up Sky On Demand?

Simply take the Ethernet cable and link up the two devices. The Ethernet cable comes included with the Sky digital TV package. If your wireless router and digital TV box are in separate rooms, you can use one of Sky's wireless connectors, they cost around £20.

How can I set up a wireless connector to access Sky On Demand?

Setting up a wireless connector is quick and easy. Before you set it up, make sure you have all of your equipment in place: the wireless connector, your Ethernet cable and the power adapter. It's also worth making sure that you broadband is up and running.

  • Plug in the wireless connector into the mains power. Connect the Ethernet cable at the back of your Sky+ or Sky+ HD box and the other end to the Wireless Connector.
  • Look at the instructions that come with your Wireless Connector. These will explain how to link up the wireless connector to the Ethernet if you have more questions. You can read Sky's handy On Demand Wireless connector guide.
  • On your Sky Remote, press the "TV Guide" button. After that, press the red button which will allow you enter the On Demand menu and link up the two devices.
