      Free Mini Connector For Any Customer Who Has Never Connected To ON Demand Before

      Sky Help Forum - Free Mini Connector For Any Customer Who Has Never... - Help & Support from the Official Sky Forum



      Look Familiar? You may have seen it in a leaflet that landed on your doormat recently.

      We are currently offering existing customers a free On Demand connector, you may have been asked to head over to sky.com/thankyou to grab one!

      All you need to do is go to sky.com/thankyou and register your interest by clicking the button and signing into your Sky account.

      We want you to get as much value as possible out of your package. Thatís why we are offering a free connector to those who donít use our On Demand Service.

      We have a full FAQ on this offer here.

      Some terms and conditions you should be aware ofÖ


      • You will need to install the On Demand connector yourself.
      • The offer is only available to those customers not using On Demand currently (You should not have used On Demand since 27 May 2013)
      • The offer ends 13 October 2013.
      • You need to have a compatible box*


      * Most newer Sky+HD boxes are compatible with On Demand. However, Thomson boxes, older Sky+ boxes (white boxes) and Digiboxes (black or white) will not get On Demand or Catch Up services. If you're not sure about your Sky+HD box:


      1. Press the Services button on your Sky remote
      2. Press the left/right arrow buttons to highlight Settings
      3. Press select and use the left/right arrows to scroll to Details.
      4. Note the Version Number:

      i. If it starts 4F30, 4F31, 9730 or 9F30, your box is compatible with On Demand.
      ii If it starts 4E30, unfortunately your box isn't compatible.

      Good question.

      At the present time I don't know. Perhaps someone can try and see?

      Remember though, if you connect your STB via another WiFi adaptor or an Ethernet cable then you will not qualify. There is a date (27th May 2013) from when this rule applies.

      Why not for those that have already used it - bit unfair.
      I might want to connect via wifi.

      I thought that, and they know if you have already used it as I tried a cheeky application.

      So much has changed! Virgin user since 2009, but moving home soon, and I will be going back with Sky. Surprised my Sky User account was still valid!

      I am sure that you will like it being back with Sky.

      Are you going for ADSL or Fibre?
