It was on the VIP app. Cant get it through the box. When we ordered it said limited stock so didnt hold out much hope of getting one.

Its the newer voice remote for Sky Q boxes.

Take a look here (Free sky Q voice remote) appears that it's not for everyone. I'm a platinum VIP and not got the offer. Rang Sky and they said it's expired.

Yeh were Platinum VIP as well. Strange that not all VIP's were invited.

Edit - the wife said were Diamond not Platinum. Not sure of the difference.

i’m diamond as well it said order confirmed but no email confirmation so will have to wait and see if It turns up
I've got a spare anyway to be fair so I'm not too fussed but might just keep an eye on the VIP offers in future

Thanks for the heads up. I went to my VIP Gold and redeemed.

I still prefer the touch remote so have two, one as a spare. Each of my mini's has a voice remote so this new one will be a spare for those.

@jonnyMercUK I have a none voice remote if you want it? The battery cover doesnt clip on anymore but it still works fine. Just pay postage.

I wanted to like the Touch Remote but I gave up on it. I have one in the drawer on its way to the bin. Together with multiple non voice remotes making their way out.

If the touch is working they go for good money on ebay.

Like over 40 quid? Unbelievable. I will get the missus to list it. Ta.

Tell me about it. After my last one broke I bought a spare for around £30 brand new as I knew these would be harder to get in the future.

I had a box replacement a couple of months ago. It came with a Touch and I told the engineer to sling it back in the van.

He took a while to drive off. He was probably listing.

It's all good, but thank you anyway

I got a free remote via VIP a few months back, so maybe I can't have it again. It doesn't matter as with all my recent box swaps I have a few spares anyway :D

I got the weekly email telling me to go request the new remote in the MySky app but it was nowhere to be found.
