Sky launches Easy Grip Sky+ remote control

Satellite TV

Satellite giant Sky has launched the Easy Grip Sky+ remote control, which the comapny claims will improve viewing for older customers, those with impaired vision and people with limited dexterity.   

The remote, developed in conjunction with Scope, Age Concern and disability research agency Ricability, offers additional features to the standard control, including larger and bolder graphics for button identification, raised contoured buttons with more reference points for easier button identification (for visually impaired users) and increased colour contrast between buttons and remote body. There are two models with different battery door options – either a textured easy grip door or a hand strap option to assist customers with dexterity impediments.

The Easy Grip is compatible with all Sky+ and Sky boxes and is available now for £19.99.
