Introducing the Sky Q touch remoteOur new Sky Q touch remote introduces new innovation and features that make controlling your Sky TV intuitive and easy. A new touchpad lets you swipe up and down, left and right and fluidly scroll through the user interface for a seamless experience. Slide along the area above the touchpad to fast forward and rewind your favourite shows. The new Home button takes you directly to your home page, while a sidebar button takes you to apps such as Sky News or Sky Sports News. We now have a dedicated Search button to help you quickly find a show, movie or sporting event. The Sky button takes you straight to your most recent recordings. Old favourites are still there too, including a dedicated multifunction record button that sets a series link in one click, records a single episode with two or cancels the recording with three. The Sky Q touch remote is also designed to control the volume on your TV or audio system. Pressing and holding the standby button will allow you to power the TV on/off and we now have an input button that lets you switch between your TV sources. No more awkwardly pointing your remote at the TV, the Sky Q touch remote uses Bluetooth technology to communicate with your Sky Q box. We also added a microphone to access Voice Search, a feature we'll be adding soon after launch. If you lose the remote, help is at hand - just press the Q in the middle of your Sky Q box and the Sky Q touch remote will start to beep! Your Sky Q menu will even tell you when to change the batteries.
