Yeah... What is that? It's not visible on my Virgin box...


If you're talking about the rectangle on the bottom left-hand side of the screen. That is the sign that sky uses to help it identify that people are accessing their channels legitimately and that they are watching an IP stream. That's rectangle site is also used on sports channels. It's nothing to worry about.

 

I'm not actually getting audio description problems at the moment, not on sky one or sky living I haven't tested the other channels yet. I'm using a NowTV smart box by the way

Re: Audio description problems

I have that box too it's never been there before presumed it was something to do with the ad we're receiving. Watching Atlantic on Apple TV with bow tv app and it's rather hard to follow !

Re: Audio description problems

I'm getting this too it's on the live Now Tv channels Sky 1, Atlantic, Living, not Sky Arts or any others, using Now Tv Smart Box. No way to switch off. Must be a glitch at their end.

Re: Audio description problems

I've spoken to technical support, the box doesn't support Audi description but due to the latest update it's messed up that's why we're hearing audio description and there's nothing you can do to turn it off, the support team are working to remove the update.

Audio Description

Tonight's episode of Girls on Sky Atlantic had audio description on and I have no idea how to switch it off! What's going on?

Same on Sky 1 and Sky Living.
