I haven't got Sky but I'd of thought this is a very good deal for a remote. Can't understand why it's gone cold?
cos its not an official remote but a "replacement" , the experiences I have had with no official remotes make it not worth the saving . Official ones are much better quality and are £10 on ebay new. These replacements all have last less than a year for me.

That's what I thought. It seems to be picking up now.
Just ordered
Third party Sky remotes are (usually) terrible pieces of junk.
Weak & flimsy rattley, poor connections so you end up pressing buttons several times aand/or harder.
Made the mistake twice of buying cheap, wouldn't again.
buy the real thing, i've had a few these and they're rubbish
nice find op, heat
If you want a cheap sky remote then try ebay. The same item is £3.95 delivered.
Heat from me, and I don't have sky
As others have said, the non official ones are terrible and you do end up pressing buttons more than once to get them to work. I bought one off Ebay the other week and never again!!!

Official remotes all the way...
I've had a few of the cheap ones before and they've not lasted very long. The official ones are half price at the Sky Accessories Store at the moment with code blackfriday50.

Totally agree with that! Loads on eBay for not much more than a couple of quid but they are garbage... even if they say they are 'original' or 'genuine,' watch out

Stick to a real seller or proper outlet. I recently paid a tenner for a rev.10 so this is a steal.

Heat OP!
Cold.Hate to say it but these things are all over ebay for the same price or less and they're nowhere near as good as the real thing.
Oh, wait, is this not an official/genuine/original remote?! A bit misleading, isn't it?
Yep 7.50 on sky accessories with discount

Thanks so much for that. ordered an official one for a tenner. nice!!
Cheaper options on eBay.
Bought a £4.99 one from Ebay a few years ago after the original didn't like the actions of a 4 year old child. Cheapo one has put up more of a fight.

Hi,

Where did you get it for £7.50 (and what discount)? £20 on Sky Accessories site.

gotta be honest, when mine played up I phoned sky, complained and they sent me a free one. we pay enough for subscription.
just what I needed ty x
Thanks to the other posters I have ordered one half price from Sky Accessories! If topcashback tracks then its another £1.90 saved.

Shall give to the parents as they have been using one where the TV Guide button barely works and it's annoying to use when I go home!

Cheaper option in Poundland ~ I'm sure I saw one in there.

Sorry couldn't see the code, where is it?
False economy. Buy an original. It'll last for years. This will get you through Xmas day if you are lucky

If an original lasts years though how comes so many people need replacement ones? I know the one we got with our box certainly didn't last for years

This is an original isn't it?
Definitely looks like it.
Never paid for a replacement, just call them and another one should be sent out for free. Got a big button remote for the old man the other day from sky..we pay enough for the service! Things like this should be free to all of there customers.
I need a replacement cos my husband cut the subtitle button out on our last one so I wouldn't put them on ....:-)
You might not need to buy a remote: your current remote may just need cleaning. Open up the remote ( with a screwdriver and prying tool) and soak and wash the rubber button pads. Works a treat.

It's gone cold because every deal, no matter how good, always begins life off cold.
i would love to meet the people who inhabit the new deal board and vote cold without checking out the deal or investigating prices. they must be a right barrel of laughs
Thanks
I recommend buying a One For All replacement remote from Argos for £10.

argos.co.uk/sta…htm


argos.co.uk/sta…htm or this one too for £15.

I have the first one, and it's well made, and way better than the Sky remote, as the problem with the Sky remote is the carbon contacts which get worn out from repeated presses, but many other remote brands, including the £10 OneForAll, doesn't use those contacts, so it'll probably last several times longer than an official sky remote.

Thanks for the advise. Was going to pay the £10 from the sky website but after a 5 minute phone call a free replacement is on its way!
