      Two, the touch/swipe remote and a standard push button to fall back on if you lose it with the former

      If you get the latest Bluetooth remote that has buttons as well as swipe capability, then you now only get one.
      That’s the normal now with the latest Sky Q boxes

      No. You should get 2. Checked with Sky and they are sending me the other one. The "traditional" one has the old style rubber buttons. The new one, although as you say, has buttons, does not "feel" the same to a lot of people - as per the Sky spokeman.

      Just to clarify, that’s not Sky’s current policy. If you get one of the new batch of 2tb boxes that includes the latest Bluetooth remote that can also be used as a button remote then that’s all you get.
      If you get one of the older boxes then you get 2 remotes, the older Bluetooth version which was swipe only and was appalling and a standard IR version.
      But it looks like you either got hold a Sky rep who either wasn’t aware or was feeling generous. But at the end of the day you got a good result.

      Only one remote is now issued.
