      Not that I know of, Sky are depending on this so as not to lend your ability to watch Sky Player to your mates etc

      If you're a Sky TV customer you can set up a secondary account linked to your primary account with different username/password to give to the child. This would have the same access to Sky Player as your main account but not access to payment details etc. You set this up in mysky somewhere.

      You can only use one of the two accounts at a time.

      That would be useful but I don't see one, where are you signing into?
