Managing your family members' screen time and internet use can sometimes be a struggle. It can often be tough to tear kids away from the TV or their online games so that you can enjoy some family time together. Fortunately, Sky Broadband users now have the answer in the shape of the Sky Broadband Buddy.

This newly introduced service from Sky allows parents to manage internet usage across all the devices in the household, simply and easily. They can pause the internet and encourage their children to step away from the screen when it's time to go outdoors or off to bed. Best of all, Sky Broadband Buddy works with 3G and 4G connections as well as in-home WiFi, so families can even benefit from the app whilst out and about.

Sky’s Chief Executive Officer for UK & Ireland, Stephen van Rooyen said, “Sky Broadband Buddy is an easy way to manage and monitor children’s internet usage, and pausing the internet is a great way to ensure you can enjoy family time free from screen time – for both children and adults”

Parents are sure to appreciate various features of the Sky Broadband Buddy, including the ability to set bedtimes, give additional time online as a reward, and to unblock access to certain sites (such as a favourite browser game) as a treat. When family TV time rolls around, you can enjoy exciting films, shows and sporting action. You could enjoy Sky TV in the comfort of your home with deals starting at £22 per month.

The Sky Broadband Buddy app is part of the new Sky Broadband Boost pack which comes with a range of additional features for customers, including daily monitoring of broadband line speeds and faults, alongside complementary engineer visits – even on weekends and evenings. Sky Mobile customers can benefit even more from this package through a back-up 2GB of data in their Sky Mobile Piggybank if the service fails.
