Replacement remote for SKy Q that has a guide button ?

Hi,

 

I am looking for a replacement remote for sky Q that has a guide button. I have an elderley relative who cannot cope with tech. They absolutley hate the new sky q remote, they had just got used to the Virgin one, which does have a guide button.

 

I also hate the lack of functionality. Next time sky increase my package price I am going back to virgin.

 

Thank you

HI @Jon101 

 

there is no remote for SKY Q that allows single button  access to the TV Guide

 

There is an Accessibility remote (non bluetooth) that has bigger buttons & a couple of direct buttons for Subtitles & Audio description but the rest of the UI interface is the same
