Sky Active was the brand name for interactive features on Sky Digital and is available in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. It enables a viewer to interact with TV content, respond to an advertisement or access internet-based services.

The service replaces Open.... which helped launch Sky Digital's interactive content, and launched many other features that viewers see today such as games, emailing and shopping via their TV.

It can be accessed by pressing the red button on a Sky Digital remote, while watching any Sky Digital Channel. Alternatively, there is an entry in the "Interactive" area of the EPG.

The service got shut down on the 31st of January 2015

With the dawn of the internet, it's made many of the Interactive services that Sky offered redundant, that's probably why there's nothing left.
