I’ve ordered on my Sky box, can I also watch online?

If you buy the event through your Sky Q box, it'll be available on your Sky Q box, Sky Q Mini, and Sky Q app (assuming you are connected to your home network) with a single order.

I want to watch this event on Sky TV, how do I order?

 

The easiest way to order is using your Sky remote;

  • Go to channel 491,
  • Press the GREEN button,
  • Press RECORD to book

Do I need an HD subscription to watch this event in HD?

 

No. As these events are a one-off purchase, your subscription does not impact your viewing options.

You will need an HD capable Sky box and TV.

 

Can I watch Sky Sports Box Office in Ultra HD?

 

Boxing events are available to Sky Q 2TB customers in Ultra HD (repeats will be shown in SD/HD).

 

A compatible TV will be required, CLICK HERE for help setting up Ultra HD.

Sky Q app, mini’s and 1TB boxes do not support Ultra HD. A multiscreen subscription is not required to watch box office events in Ultra HD.

 

Why haven't I been asked for my PIN?

 

The default settings will require you to enter your Sky PIN to order Box Office events.

You can re-enable PIN requests for Box Office purchases using the following instructions

  • Sky+ - Services> Parental Control & PIN> Family> PIN Required for purchases
  • Sky Q - Settings> Parental> Family> PIN on Purchase

I have a message on my TV, now what?

 

Click this link and type your on screen message into the available box. Simply follow the next steps.

 

I ordered using my remote, now the search banner is stuck on screen!

 

Press RECORD on your Sky remote to order the event.

This can happen during the first hour of programming if your order hasn't fully confirmed. The first hour of programming is available to all Sky customers without paying for the event. Pressing record will confirm your order and remove the banner, you will only be charged once (per viewing card).

 

I ordered using my remote, I have a blue screen.

 

Press RECORD on your Sky remote to order the event.

The first 60 minutes are available for all Sky customers without ordering the event. After that, if you see a blue screen, your order didn't process correctly. Re-order the event using your Sky remote, you will only be charged once (per viewing card).

Just to clarify, I’ve ordered in UHD but i’ll Still have access to HD on my connected Mini box

Community Manager

That's right. Once you order an event, you'll have access to SD, HD and UHD broadcasts (assuming you have the compatible equipment)

 

These events are ordered to the viewing card, as Sky Q customers have a single viewing card per household, only one order is required to watch on your main Sky Q box, Sky Q mini(s) and Sky Q app (when connected to your home network.)

 

Sky+ customers require a viewing card per box, therefore a separate order is required per box (viewing card).

Thanks Mark. Worked a treat so we could finish watching the after-fight in another room.

Hi, 

I just signed in to my account online and ordered the fight for saturday. 

I read that if you order on your tv you can't watch it online, is this the case for the otherway round if I order it on my laptop can I watch it on the tv?

Community Manager

@ines1988 That's right. The two platforms aren't linked.

It'd require two separate orders to watch online and on your Sky TV. Hope this helps Smiley Happy

Runner

Thats great! Thanks very much for your help.

I'm in my 31 day notice period to cancel , can I still order sky sports box office for the boxing tonight ?

@stevepvfc18761981

 

If you are within your 31 days notice you will be unable to order the fight to view via your box but you should be able to order it to watch online instead as you would have to add a payment method when doing this.

Hi, I want to order the boxing tonight on Sky Box Office. I am a Sky subscriber so will order through my remote. Does the charge go on my Sky bill or am I required to make a card payment today/a card payment will be taken today?

Community Manager

When streaming Sky Sports Box Office events, this FAQ page offers all the required information.

 

Sky TV customers who order a pay per view event will have the charge(s) added to their monthly bill.

Hi, I bought the box office fight on Saturday, didn’t record it but would like to watch it again. How do I access it through my tv as I can’t find it?

Hi @cjackson8t4,

 

I hope you enjoyed all the fights as much as I did. Smiley Happy

 

Full repeats of pay per view events are available the following day (Sunday, 0900 & 1600). These repeats are available to record for anyone who purchased the fight.

 

I don't have a confirmed date, but the fight will be made available for Sky Sports customers On Demand (usually a couple of weeks after the live event).
