What do I do if the following message appears: No satellite signal being received
Try rebooting your box and checking your cable connections - Switch off your Sky box and TV at the mains. Next check that all the wires are firmly inserted into your Sky box and television.

What do I do if I keep losing signal whilst watching?
Heavy rain, snowfall, electrical storms or gales are common causes for satellite signals not being received by your digital box which can and does affect the quality of your picture. This is usually a temporary problem which will resolve itself once the weather conditions return to normal.
How do I make sure I record all of the fight?
Due to the nature of live boxing, shows sometimes exceed their time slots.
As a result, we advise all users to manually add time to the length of their recording to ensure they don't miss a single moment.
