Sky Q Mini boxes require a Sky Q Multiscreen subscription to function; without one, they will simply not work. More Sky Q Mini boxes must be added to your subscription in order for you to receive and begin using them.
Purchasing a used Sky Mini box does not guarantee premium Sky quality and may have been in use for several years. Customers must also pay a non-return fee for any Sky equipment when canceling a contract, and a £50 fee for a non-returned Sky Q Mini box. If you see someone selling a Sky Q Mini box on eBay, it is possible that they obtained it elsewhere and are trying to make a profit on equipment that may or may not function properly.
Is an aerial required for a Sky Q Mini box?
No, an aerial connection is not required for the TV that you intend to use your Sky Q Mini box with. If you get your broadband from Sky, this will be pre-configured; otherwise, you will need to enable the feature yourself.
Is the Sky touch remote compatible with the Sky Q Mini box?
Although the Sky Q Mini box accepts the Sky touch remote, you cannot use the same Sky touch remote on both your main Sky box and your Sky Mini box.
Is Sky Q Mini a WiFi booster?
Yes, your Sky Q Mini boxes can be used as WiFi boosters throughout your home. If you get your broadband from Sky, this will be pre-configured; otherwise, you will need to enable the feature yourself. The Sky Mini boxes will boost your home network signal in the rooms where they are installed, allowing you to connect your various devices in places where you may have previously struggled to get WiFi signal.
If you don't have Sky broadband, here's how to activate WiFi hotspots:
- On your Sky Q remote, go to Settings > Setup > Network.
- Choose Advanced Settings > WiFi Hotspots > Turn On.
- To confirm, enter your TV Pin.
Will a Sky Q Mini box function in another home?
Sky Multiscreen requires you to be on the same network as your main Sky Q box in order for the Mini boxes to communicate with it. Because of this, taking your Mini boxes out of the house and attempting to use them elsewhere without the Sky Q box would be impossible.
Are Sky Q Mini boxes 4K capable?
Unfortunately, 4K UHD is only available on your main Sky Q box and not on the Sky Mini boxes. Because your Sky Mini box only supports Full HD, you'll have to watch Sky content on your main box to get a 4K experience.
Is it possible to watch Netflix and Amazon Prime on a Sky Q Mini box?
Because your Sky Q Mini box is essentially an extension of your main Sky Q box, any apps you have installed on your main box will also be available on your Mini box. If your apps aren't showing up on your Mini box, go to Settings, press 001, and then select Apps > Refresh Apps.
