Why am I being asked to upgrade on Sky Q?

- Go to the homepage on your Sky Q set top box and search for the discovery+ app.
- Open the app and click on “Continue Sky Activation” which should show you a 6-digit code.
- Then on a web browser open the link http://www.sky.com/discoveryplusactivate and log into your sky account
- Press continue until you are asked to fill in your details when you should be taken to a page where you’re asked to enter the code shown on your Sky Q set top box.
- When the code has been entered successfully, the app on your Sky Q box should refresh and you will have access to your new discovery+ subscription!
