      Remote control!

      Hi Sky,
      My son recently broke my controller for my sky box! Which is annoying lol.

      But I have seen this - Free Remote Control From Sky | WOW Free Stuff - Freebies, Free Samples And Free stuff In The UK just want to know if its real or not? Or is there a way of getting a controller without paying?

      Please let me know asap!
      Thanks,
      Steve

      Post moderated. New members must make 10 posts before they are allowed to include attachments or links in their post. This is to prevent spammers using the forum to advertise.

      It looks genuine enough but if you apply for it, don't use your main email or phone number or you are likely to get targeted with spam.

      It looks suspicious to me. With your Sky ID and account number anyone could reset your My Sky password allowing them access to your online Sky account.

      edit:

      I see that the online form has been removed.

      It is actually an official Sky remote you get through the Accessibility team. There is no need to give your details to a 3rd party, use the Contact Us link on this page - https://accessibility.sky.com/faqs/r...remote-control

      Re: Remote control!

      No idea really. According to the link I gave there has been a big demand, due to the page you linked to. This means there are longer delays. It could be anything from a few days to a couple of months. Remember to use this service you should be disabled in some way, arthritis in the hands or something like that.
