your activation date
You’ll find this on the top of your Sky
Hub packaging. Your Sky Broadband
will not be up and running until then.
When to set up your Sky Hub?
• If you are switching from another
broadband provider, on the
activation date your previous
broadband service will stop. When
this happens you can start to set up
your Sky Hub
• If you are coming from Virgin Media
or getting a new broadband service,
you can set up your Sky Hub on your
activation date and then wait for
your Sky Broadband to go live
Please note, your Sky Broadband
can go live anytime up to midnight

Find
your master phone socket
For your best speeds and stability you
should connect your Sky Hub to your
master phone socket. This is where
your broadband signal is strongest.
To find it look around your home for a
larger phone socket with a line in the
middle and possibly a BT or Openreach
logo. You can also try tracing where
your phone line enters your house
from the street and looking on the
wall near there.
OR
Alternative master
phone socket
If you can’t find a master socket with
a line through it, look for a socket that
is thicker or with a BT logo in the top
or bottom corner.

Master phone socket
If you can’t find your master phone
socket simply connect your Sky Hub
to a convenient phone socket. Your
broadband should still work but may not
perform as well as in the master socket.
OR
Pre-filtered sockets
You may find you have a pre-filtered
master phone socket. This is usually
the case if you have a new build house
or previously had Fibre installed in
your home.

Take out everything from your master phone

If you have an Openreach Modem connected
to your pre-filtered faceplate disconnect it and
recycle it as you no longer need it.

Why should I fit microfilters to all my other phone sockets that are in use?
Without correctly installed microfilters around your home, your Sky Broadband
connection may be slow, intermittent or may stop connecting at all.
For these set ups, this is how you should
fit a microfilter to your phone socket:

with a wired set up
Why a wired connection?
If your computer will always be next to your
Sky Hub, then you may want to set up a wired
Sky Broadband connection.
Ease of set up – a wired connection is much
easier to set up. All you need to do is simply
plug one end of the black Ethernet cable into
the back of your Sky Hub and the other end
into your computer.
Reliability and speed – your computer will
always be connected, without interference
from other electrical devices which will give you
a faster speed than with a wireless connection,
so ideal if you are downloading large files.

sing your
U
equipment safely
Your Sky Hub has been manufactured to meet
international safety standards, but you must
take care if you want it to perform properly
and safely. It’s important that you read this
section completely, especially the ‘Warnings
and Cautions’ instructions. You should follow
the instructions set out in your Set Up Guide.
If you’ve any doubts about the Set Up process,
operation or safety of your Sky Hub, please
contact Sky.
Warnings and cautions
Remember that contact with 230V AC mains
can be lethal or can cause a severe electric
shock. To avoid this risk:
• Never remove the cover of your Sky Hub.
There are no user-serviceable parts inside,
but there are some high-voltage live parts
• Don’t attempt to repair your Sky Hub. Instead,
please contact Sky Customer Services
• If you move your Sky Hub between locations
at different temperatures, allow it to reach
room temperature before you connect it to
the mains supply
• Make sure that all electrical connections are
properly made
• Don’t connect your Sky Hub to the mains
supply until you have properly connected all
the other cables
• Disconnect your Sky Hub from the mains
supply before you disconnect any other
equipment from its rear panel
• Never push anything into holes, slots or other
openings in the casing of your Sky Hub
• Your Sky Hub is intended for use in moderate
climates. Don’t use or store your Sky Hub box
in hot, cold, damp or dusty places
• In order to ensure a free flow of air around
your Sky Hub, allow at least 10cm of space
above and on all sides. Don’t cover any
ventilation holes and slots
35
• Ensure the ventilation holes and slots
don’t become impeded with items such as
newspapers, tablecloths and curtains or
similar items
• Don’t place your Sky Hub close to sources
of heat such as a heater or direct sunlight. The
maximum temperature should not exceed 45°C
• Don’t place your Sky Hub in an enclosed
cabinet with other pieces of tv equipment
e.g. Sky Box, VCR or DVD
• Don’t put anything on your Sky Hub which
might drip or spill into it. Never stand objects
filled with liquids, such as vases, on top
• Never place naked flame sources, such as
lighted candles, on or adjacent to your Sky Hub
Mains plug and its fuse
The supplied mains plug may
be a non-rewireable type or
a rewireable type. Both types
contain an approved 3A fuse. If you need to
replace the fuse, use an ASTA or BSI approved
BS 1362 fuse, rated at 3A and marked with
either of these symbols. Non-rewireable plugs
have the fuse beneath a fuse cover on the plug
face. Use a screwdriver to lever off the fuse
cover, replace the fuse with a new one and refit
its cover. Never use a plug if its fuse cover is
missing. Rewireable plugs have the fuse inside.
36
Use a screwdriver to remove the plug’s back
cover, then lever out the fuse and replace it
with a new one. Replace the plug’s back cover.
If the supplied mains plug is not suitable for
your mains socket outlet, remove its fuse and
then cut the plug off the lead. Destroy the
severed plug immediately to avoid the shock
hazard which would exist if this were to be
plugged into a mains socket. Don’t attempt
to repair or modify the mains lead or plug. Fit
an appropriate mains plug on the lead. If this
plug contains a fuse, it should be as described
above. If you’re using a non-fused plug, an
external fuse must not exceed 5A.
Connecting to the mains supply
Your Sky Hub operates with 230V AC, 50 Hz
mains supply. Don’t connect it to a DC power
supply. On some models, the supplied mains
lead has a 2-way connector at one end and
a mains plug at the other. Insert the 2-way
connector into your Sky Hub before you insert
the plug into the mains supply. The only way
to disconnect your Sky Hub from the mains
is to take the plug out of the socket. Your Sky
Hub must therefore be installed near the
mains socket outlet, which should be easily
accessible. If you’re in any doubt about
anything relating to the mains supply,
consult a competent electrician.
