connect sky box to internet

Hi,
Is it possible to connect my box to the internet so I can watch anytime without using having to plug it in the wall? Like plugged into my laptop? My lead doesn't reach!

Thanks x

Re: connect sky box to internet

If you want Anytime+ on your Sky box then a lead needs to be run from your router to the Sky box if that is what you mean, other than that I don't understand what you are asking.

 

You can not connect your Sky box to your laptop.

Don't suppose you know what cable it is you need to connect your sky box to your Internet (modem)?

 

Thanks

The cable is Ethernet (Cat5 or Cat6).
