I’m a Sky TV addict and I know three game-changing remote hacks – including a secret button that saves you loads of time

YOUR Sky TV remote is full of hidden features – and even the odd secret button.

Here are three you might not know about that will instantly upgrade your telly viewing experience with Sky Q.

Take your Sky Q box to the next level

Faster TV guide

The TV guide can take ages to swipe through using the standard arrow keys.

This is especially the case if you want to look at what’s on tomorrow.

But did you know there’s another set of buttons that skip forward much faster?

The button in question is the fast forward button.

Click it and the guide will skip forward a whole 24 hours.

Similarly, hit the rewind button and it’ll go back 24 hours.

Should you get lost in the TV guide, go for the play button – this will send you back to the present.

Say your favourite movie quotes

The voice controls already make telly time a lot easier.

But you can have a bit of fun with it too.

The feature will recognise some movie quotes – and send you straight to the title it’s associated with.

For example, “My Precious” will take you to The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

You can find the full list of supported movie quotes here.

Hidden button

Your Sky Q remote also has a hidden button hiding in plain sight.

The Sky logo isn’t just a fancy bit of decoration, it’s actually a fully functioning button too.

Pressing it will take you straight to your recordings.

So you no longer have to go through the various Sky menus to find what you’re looking for.
