Sky launches remote for "older" viewers
Sky has launched a remote control specifically designed to assist older customers, people with visual impairments and those with limited dexterity.
The Sky+ Remote Control - Easy Grip is intended to make it easier for all viewers to enjoy the choice of content available on Sky.
The Easy Grip remote offers all of the familiar features of the iconic Sky+ remote in two variants with different battery door options – either a textured easy grip door or a hand strap option to assist customers with dexterity impediments. Both versions have the additional benefits of:
-Larger and bolder graphics for easier button identification
-Raised contoured buttons with more reference points for easier button identification for visually impaired customers
-Increased colour contrast between buttons and remote body
-Compatible with all Sky+ and Sky boxes
Kay Allen, Disability Affairs Manager at Sky, said: "Sky is launching an inclusive remote control because we think that everyone should be able to enjoy a great choice of TV. We know that some viewers have problems operating their TV remote control so our Easy Grip remote is specially designed to make things easier for them. It’s just the latest addition to our range of accessibility services and we’ll continue to work to make television more accessible."
Sky+ Remote Control - Easy Grip costs £19.99 (+ £3.50 P&P) for both battery door options. Existing customers can call Sky on 08705 66 33 33 or take advantage of Sky’s text phone number 08702 40 19 10.
