How To Speed Up Sky On Demand Downloads

sky on demand

Trying to download an On Demand programme through Sky but bumping up against tediously slow download speeds? It’s a common problem, and in this guide we’ll be looking at how to fix it. First, you should check the strength of your wireless signal.

  • Press the ‘Services’ button on your Sky remote
  • Navigate to ‘Settings’
  • Press the ‘Select’ button twice to enter the ‘Picture’ page
  • Click ‘Network’
  • Check the signal strength bar.

If your signal is weak, Sky+ will struggle to download things at high speeds. The fix to this is getting a better connection between your router and your Sky+HD box. Here are some hints to improve the strength of your signal.

  • Consider moving your wireless router closer to your Sky box
  • Try to remove all sources of interference such as electronic items like computers, fax machines et cetera
  • Run a wired connection from your router to the Sky box for a constantly strong connection
  • Don’t do any other taxing Internet activities like downloading torrents or playing video games whilst you’re trying to download things On Demand

With those done, you should see your Sky On Demand speeds increase dramatically and you can go back to enjoying TV the way you want to. If not, your problem may be something else and it's worthwhile to contact the Sky payment number and register a complaint.
