Game-changing 'three click' Sky TV hack has two very handy perks | The Sun

IF YOU need to delete content from your Sky TV box in a flash, this quick and easy hack should help.

The trick, which was recent shared on TikTok, lets you wipe dozens of episodes at once, rather than deleting them individually.

It was highlighted by TikTok user @emmastallabrass, who also goes by Emma online, in an upload posted in July 2022.

Emma said that the nifty shortcut is great for parents whose kids are a little overzealous with the download button.

Sky Q and Sky+ let you download content onto your TV so that you can watch it later.

It means you can catch your favourite shows and movies any time you want – even without an internet connection.

If you're not careful, however, the amount of content stored on your box can quickly add up.

Before you know it, you have hundreds of shows clogging up your storage space.

If your box's memory is filled to the brim, it can't store more content, depriving you of one of Sky's best features.

Some users are unaware that you can delete content in bulk instead of wiping episodes or movies individually.
