What if I get error messages on Sky TV?

There are three main types of errors possible with Sky TV. The first is a blue screen that tells you your Sky + HD Box isn’t getting signal. This is an issue with cables, your satellite dish or the connections to your Sky box. To fix this, check all your connections are inserted correctly and check your dish hasn’t been damaged at all.

The second problem is a black screen that says “NO SIGNAL” – this is because of a connection problem between your Sky box and your TV. Again, check these cables and insert properly if needed.

The third is the most popular – the scrambled picture. Because satellite is transmitted in open air, unfortunately your signal strength is subject to adverse weather conditions. This one you will have to wait out, but it shouldn’t be too long – most weather is handled smoothly. Call the Sky phone number above if you need further assistance.

What is Sky Go?

Sky Go is a streaming Sky service available on your devices, so you can keep current with your TV programming, wherever you are in the world. You can have this service on up to two compatible devices. Computer, laptop, Playstation, Xbox, tablet or mobile.

Simply register your device with and follow the easy-to-understand instructions on how to install. Not only can you watch TV, but Sky Go now also includes the popular Sky on demand service.
