Great news to Sky Q box users. If you are using a Sky Q set-top TV box with broadband, Sky is giving you a free Sky Q voice-control remote. It is open to Sky VIP users without the existing remote on their Sky Q box. Users in the UK and Ireland can avail themselves of the free offer. However, it is only available while stocks last.
When using the Sky Q voice remote, you can enjoy the features that come with your Sky Q TV box. You can launch apps, play recordings and downloads, and manage the playbacks with only your voice. Try searching for specific events, shows, or actors. Find movies to stream and change channels for binge-watching. With the voice control remote, you can also take advantage of the new feature called “What Should I Watch“ on your Sky Q box.
