Hey guys,

So my amazing girlfriend got me a new phone, the Samsung galaxy 4 (i9505 to be precise). anyways surprisingly I have found the stock app WatchOn quite useful but I wondering if anyone knows how to set it up to work with New Zealands MySky boxes?

Kudos to anyone who can help me get it to work since I'm far to lazy to get up and grab the remote these days lol

On my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 it came with a similar application named Peel Smart Remote.

I just did a quick scroll through available brands of "Set top boxes" and Sky and Sky+ seems to be an available brand.

I assume the Sky boxes it supports are the ones which the U.K. use..
I have no idea how similar Sky New Zealand's decoders are to it, but I think it is worth giving it a go none-the-less as the application is free.

From my experience, the sky UK and the sky NZ remotes aren't interchangeable...
Computers: Sirius | HP 650 15" Celeron Laptop
Mobile Devices: OnePlus One 64GB | iPad Mini 16GB White | Cheap 10.1" Android Tablet | HP Touchpad
Stuff Ralph54 owes me: 1GB Black USB Stick | SATA 3 cable | IDE/SATA to USB | 8GB Black USB Stick

Hey setup the remote for a 'Pace' set top box code set 9ish should work. Works with my mySKY+ box.
Hopefully that works for you

Thanks PeachesNZ, I have been searching for a while for a set top box "model" in the Peel app to work with my NZ sky digital box. Trying all the sky models wasn't working. Still relevant a few years on!
