buying from thirdparty website

In this world of E-Commerce, you can see the mini box on other third party websites also. Moreover, the deal you may get there may be quite lucrative.

We do not recommend you to buy any box from third party websites like Amazon, E-bay, etc. This is because many users report that these devices brought from the mentioned sites do not work properly.

Sky is a legal company, and hence any Q box sold otherwise is termed “illegal” as chances are there that these devices are stolen devices sold online. If Sky notices this, they will block the device immediately.

So, avoid buying any mini box from a third-party website or you may waste your money.
