Mum finds 'amazing' Sky TV hack that totally changes how you use it

A TIKTOK user has been left so amazed at tricks she can do on her Sky Q remote that she made a video about it.

The TikTok video explains two tricks that you can try with your own Sky Q remote.

TikToker @heavenscent_2u posted the short clip.

She says: "Oh my god so I actually love TikTok, I've just decided.

"I'm a late bloomer. You learn some amazing things.

"So I've had Sky for nearly a year, Sky Q, had no idea you could do this."

The TikToker then gets her smart remote and clicks the voice control button.

The button should have a little microphone symbol on it.

She says: "Skip five minutes".

Then, the video shows how the TV programme she's watching does just that.

She also says how you can say "Restart" to your voice controlled remote and it will take you to the beginning of a programme.

Sky remotes have lots of useful features.

There's even one that can help you locate the remote if you've misplaced it.

How to use Find My Remote on Sky Q

If you’ve lost your Sky Q remote control, don’t panic.

First make sure your house is quiet, so you can hear the beep.

Then press the Q button on the front of your Sky Q box.

After a few seconds, your paired Sky Q Touch / Sky Q remote with Voice Control will beep.

This beeping will only last for 30 seconds, so if you don’t find it in that time, you’ll need to restart the process.

If it doesn’t work at all then it’s possible that your Sky Q remote is out of battery.

It’s also possible that the Sky Q remote is no longer in the building, and can’t be reached by the Sky Q box.
