Remote, zapper, thingymabob: whatever you call it, it’s an essential part of your living room furniture, and it can be as much a nightmare as a convenience.

We’re all too familiar with the despair suffered when it goes missing, so if you happen to be suffering the effects of old age or, just finding the damn thing a challenge, we have good news.

Sky has developed a new version of its ubiquitous remote, with increased colour contrast between the body and the new contoured buttons. It also has bolder graphics to make it easier to use for the visually impaired.

The large handle-type addition on the back is a strap to make the remote easier to hold, although this is only one of two options – the other is a textured easy grip battery cover on the rear.

It’s compatible with all regular Sky and Sky+ boxes so if you want one simply give Sky a buzz on the number below.
