ANYONE with Sky TV should consider upgrading their remote control with a simple accessory.

It’s a glow-in-the-dark sleeve for your Sky TV remote.

The idea is that it makes it much easier to find in the dark.

So you’ll be able to avoid losing those precious minutes blindly groping the sofa – or worse still, having to turn the lights on.

The sleeve also has the advantage of helping you avoid scuffing the remote.

The clever accessory has an impressive 4.5/5 rating on Amazon with over 260 customer reviews.

One buyer named Rosie wrote: “I find this very handy since I bought it because I kept losing my black remote.

“This is much easier to see.”

Another added: “Fits like a glove. Stops the remote sliding off the arm of the chair and is easy to find amongst your clutter!’

And one noted: “It shows up well on the bed so I can easily find it at night.”

A few long-time Sky customers also added that it helps to keep “broken” remotes together.

But not all of the reviews were positive. One troubled owner said: “OK. But my dog now thinks it’s a toy.”

The accessory isn’t an official Sky product, but it should fit a standard Sky Q remote.

And it’s available for Prime delivery, so paid-up Amazon members can bag fast delivery.

Find your lost remote

There’s another hack that Sky TV owners should know about.

If you’ve really lost your remote and can’t seem to find it, there’s a fantastic solution.

The remote has a built-in speaker that can beep if you’ve lost it.

All you need to do is activate the feature using your Sky box.

The remote control will beep loudly for 30 seconds, allowing you to quickly locate it.

First make sure your house is quiet, so you can hear the beep.

Then press the Q button on the front of your Sky Q box.

After a few seconds, your paired Sky Q Touch / Sky Q remote with Voice Control will beep.

This beeping will only last for 30 seconds, so if you don’t find it in that time, you’ll need to restart the process.

If it doesn’t work at all then it’s possible that your Sky Q remote is out of battery.

It’s also possible that the Sky Q remote is no longer in the building, and can’t be reached by the Sky Q box.
