So... You're sitting on the couch starting up the PS4 or turning on your favorite TV Show and lo and behold your phone rings, It's the PPI company!
Nuisance calls are just that, a nuisance and Sky hope to help you fight the good fight. There are a few different options available to you.
I used to receive calls asking for someone else that is't in my household and this is because all phone numbers are recycled so if you change your number you will just receive the same amount of nuisance calls as before if not more.
So here are some sure fire ways that work.
What is Sky Talk Shield?
It's a service for Sky talk customers which allows you to screen and block calls. It's simple to add and manage from My Skyincluding managing Blocked and Whitelisted numbers and toggling the call screening feature on and off.
When Sky Talk Shield is turned on, all callers will first be screened and asked to state their name, you will then receive a call with the caller's name and from there you can decide whether to add them to the Star list or Block list.
If someone gets in contact and you want them to be able to call without having to go through the screening process then add them to your Star list. If you would like the number to stop calling you then add it to the Block list
How much is Sky Talk Shield? It's Free.

The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) is a free service that allows you to register your preference to not receive unsolicited calls. It is a legal requirement that all organisations do not make such calls to numbers registered with the TPS unless they have your consent to do so.
If you would like to register your number with the TPS then you can do so here.
If you're in a non-Sky Network area, find out how to activate call barring here.
