Sky Q is constantly bringing new voice commands to its voice remote, which viewers can use to name shows, films, actors and directors to better start a search. Better still, you can even quote from your favorite movie to pinpoint that title on Sky Cinema, Sky Store, Netflix, or Disney +. For example, barking “Show me the money!” into your remote control loads the list for Jerry Maguire.
However, with the latest addition to the Sky Q Voice Remote, the satellite broadcaster is taking a completely different path. For the first time, Sky has asked its customers to help select the next command by voting on the next voice command to be added to their set-top box.
With a survey launched on social media, Sky offered its customers the choice between “Here we go”, “Southgate you are the one”, “God Save Our Gracious Queen” and “So good, so good”. With hundreds of votes counted, the winner was chosen as “Southgate you’re the one”.
That may not come as a surprise considering how much English fans rallied around the Atomic Kitten hit from 2000. The girl group has the song against each other this week before the semifinals.
When you pick up your Sky Q voice remote control and say these magical five words, you will be redirected to Euros’ special language landing page. This brings everything a Euro 2020 fan could want in a single menu – from the latest headlines about the tournament, highlights from the games or a link to the latest episode of That Peter Crouch Podcast for exclusive insights jump, there’s a lot to love.
If you don’t have a Sky Q voice remote, Sky runs regular promotions to get your hands on a free one.
“Southgate you’re the one” complements the three existing voice commands to start the Euro 2020 hub on Sky Q – “Goal”, “It’s Coming Home” or “Come on England”.
Sky Q starts at £ 25 a month. The flagship set-top box can not only tune Ultra HD 4K sports broadcasts, but also stream films and shows in ultra-sharp quality. Sky Q allows viewers to record six programs simultaneously while watching a seventh live. There’s also support for HDR and dozens of popular apps, from home fitness like Hiit and Peloton to music videos, cooking guides, and streaming services like Netflix, Prime Video, and Disney +.
