Stop Sky Card Warning From Showing

A big thank you for Phil from Lanzarote Business Sales for sending this tip to us recently.

“OK now I know that a few people throughout the Canaries are getting a little bit frustrated waiting for their new sky cards to come and can only imagine how difficult it can be to keep getting rid of the warning if you have a bar or other business showing games.

TIP:
If you select any program you wish to watch from the SKY TV Guide and then select it to “Autoview” then leave the box to bounce in to the program without pressing any backup or selecting the channel you will find that the warning doesn’t appear again until after the program has finished!”

Thanks Phil! We don’t have Sky… but we know many who do… so hope that your tip helps them out.
