Premier League top clubs get their own Sky+HD remote controls

Fans of Manchester City, Newcastle United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Everton can all show their allegiance with a Sky+HD remote in team colours.

Each of the remotes includes the team’s home strip colours and club badge, and cost £29.99 from Sky – that’s £5 more than a standard replacement remote.

It’s the first time Sky has rebranded its remote controls since the special edition Union Jack handset for the Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

What, no Manchester United? How the mighty have fallen.

Hopefully it’s the first of many customised Sky remotes: we’d love to see Game of Thrones houses and F1 team livery. If you can think of any more, let us know in the comments below.

If you just want to make your remote control stand out, a quick search on Amazon will deliver stick-on skins with everything from jelly beans and flames to tropical fish and ‘sexy cannabis’.

You can also get stickers for the Apple TV remote but not for Virgin Media’s TiVo – a shame as the black TiVo handset could do with a bit of excitement.
