Fetch TV – Everything You Need to Know

With so much talk and excitement around the various forms of streaming TV these days, it’s easy to overlook the fact that Fetch TV has been delivering streaming TV into an ever-growing number of homes since all the way back in 2010. With a clever business model that is built on close ties with internet providers, Fetch delivers access to a wide range of premium live TV channels and a comprehensive library of current movies & TV. With one of the best set top boxes on the market, Fetch TV is steadily growing in popularity, now boasting over half a million users.

The market that Fetch TV arrived in was one dominated, when it came to subscription TV, by conventional broadcasting via cable and satellite. Competing with established pay TV services on their own turf is therefore almost impossible – it’s prohibitively expensive and takes many years to set up.

The obvious answer was to set up an IPTV service, using the Internet as the platform to deliver multiple TV channels entirely via streaming. But in a country like Australia back in 2010, that posed a major problem, with the vast majority of broadband users on ADSL and internet speeds an unpredictable thing. Fetch’s solution to this was to directly partner with an internet provider – and the one they chose was iiNet. Launching with 14 channels and a triple-tuner set top box that enabled receiving and recording of free to air television, Fetch set about carving a unique niche in the Australian TV landscape.

Continuing to add channels as the service grew in popularity, Fetch TV extended their partnerships with internet providers, adding Optus to the fold (which ultimately led to the creation of the Optus Sport service, delivered via the Fetch TV platform exclusively for Optus customers and offering live coverage of English Premier League football).

Fetch TV Advantages

One of the key advantages of Fetch TV’s way of doing things is its adaptability; it was the first pay TV provider to directly support Netflix streaming on its hardware, for example, and current Fetch boxes work just as well at streaming Netflix, Stan, Hayu, YouTube and others as they do streaming premium channels or live TV.

Naturally, the various catch-up streaming services from all five free-to-air networks are fully supported as well – making Fetch TV an easy single-box solution that covers all your TV and streaming needs.

Much of the Fetch advantage comes from its low cost, too; unlike other pay TV options, there’s no expensive hardware installation needed for Fetch TV – the boxes (there’s two different models these days) can be rented for a modest fee every month, or bought outright if you’d prefer.

Fetch TV’s Set Top Boxes

With their well-liked original box now retired from sale (but still very much in active use by thousands of people), Fetch these days offers a choice of two extremely well designed boxes – the Fetch Mighty and the Fetch Mini. The two devices share much of their basic functionality, but the Mini lacks some key features that make the Mighty one of the best TV devices on the market.

The Mighty, despite its unassuming appearance, is an incredibly fully featured device that comes with four free-to-air TV tuners, enabling the recording of up to six shows at the one time on its 1TB hard drive. It supports full 4K output and 4K streaming from Netflix, YouTube and others, as well. The Mini, on the other hand, is designed more specifically as a streaming box. It has no hard drive (though its 4GB of flash memory lets you pause and rewind live TV if you want) and can only support 1080p high definition.

Those major differences aside, the Mighty and Mini share the exact same DNA when it comes to Fetch TV’s convenience features like streaming TV channels to an iOS or Android app, a smart 7-day program guide and a movie store that integrates reviews from the respected Rotten Tomatoes site, and the acclaimed Fetch TV user interface.

The Mini can also be put to use as a destination for streaming shows you’ve recorded on the Mighty – so you can put a Mini on the bedroom TV then browse through and stream anything you’ve recorded – a surprisingly handy feature.

For those wanting to buy the boxes outright, the Mighty ($449) and Mini ($169) can be found at retailers including JB HiFi, The Good Guys and Harvey Norman. There’s a token $1 fee to activate the box if you’ve bought your own, but after that it’s yours to do with as you wish!

HD Channels

One of the big advantages of the latest Fetch set top boxes is their support for the latest HEVC video encoding format, as used by Netflix for its 4K content. HEVC allows massively higher picture quality and resolution using far less data – making it perfect for live-streaming HD channels. Many of Fetch’s premium channels are now in HD – important in this era of larger and larger TVs!

The Starter Pack

When you subscribe to Fetch TV via one of the partner internet providers, you get automatic access to the Fetch “Starter Pack”. This is a catch-all term that covers the basic functionality of the set top boxes – apps, catch-up TV, the movie and TV show stores, and so on. But it also includes Movie Box, a rotating selection of 30 movies that you can stream at no charge, with new titles every month.

Channel Packs

The real versatility of the Fetch TV system can be found in the various channel packs, which are separated into three categories – Premium channels, special interest channels and  “World Packs”. Customers are welcome to add and remove channel packs at any time, as there’s no contracts of any kind involved in the Fetch TV service.

Premium Channels

There’s four packs of channels to choose from, and you can take any or all of them depending on the type of content you’re interested in. They’re priced at $6/month each, though if you opt to subscribe to all four, the total cost is a special price of $20/month.

Definitely a “the name says it all” channel pack, the Kids pack features 9 popular kid-focused channels to keep the little ones happy. Channels in this pack include Disney Channel and Disney Jr, Nickelodeon and Nick Jr, BBC Cbeebies, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Baby TV and Zoo Moo.

Knowledge

If you love docos and news, this pack is a must-have, with 18 channels covering both those bases and everything in between. Channels included are National Geographic HD, Nat Geo Wild HD, Discovery Channel, Food Network HD, NDTV, BBC Living, BBC Knowledge HD, Travel Channel HD, HGTV HD, BBC World News HD, CNN HD, CNBC Australia, Bloomberg, Al Jazeera English and Euronews.

Vibe

A combo of live sport, entertainment and fashion with this batch of a dozen channels, including MTV HD, MTV Music HD, MTV Dance HD, Comedy Central HD, Style, eGG Network HD, E!, Spike HD, Fashion TV, ESPN HD, ESPN 2 HD and EDGE Sport HD.

Variety

Drama with a hint of general entertainment makes up the Variety pack, including Universal HD, 13th Street HD, SyFy HD, BBC First HD, BBC UKTV, TLC, TVH!TS, 111 Funny, MTV Classic and C Music TV – ten channels in all.

Special Interest Channel Packs

For those who want to get even more out of their Fetch TV service, a range of specialised premium channel packs are available, including the beIN Sports triple-channel pack at $19.99/month, Horse & Country at $7.95/month, and UFC on a pay-per-view basis (events cost about $55 each to gain access to their live streams). Optus subscribers and those who buy a Fetch box at retail can also add Optus Sport for $14.95/month.

World Packs

A range of foreign-language channel packs is also available, a very welcome addition for those who are keen to find content to watch in their native language. These include a 15-channel Chinese pack ($9.95/month), a 25-channel “Taj Mahal” (India and Pakistan) pack ($15/month), 4 channels from Italy ($15/month), TVB Cantonese & Korean (5 channels for $15/month) and Pinoy (8 channels, $19.95/month).

Internet Providers Offering Fetch TV

As mentioned above, the key advantage that Fetch TV has is in its partnerships with specific internet providers, which gives them the ability to stream the service reliably from the provider’s own servers, and also to offer Fetch to customers at a low monthly rate without the need to pay retail price for a Mighty or Mini box.

Fetch bundles and plans can be had from iPrimus, Dodo, iiNet, Internode, Optus and a brand new addition for 2018, Aussie Broadband. Prices vary depending on the type of box, the plan and any channel inclusions the provider may offer – check our bundle comparison page to get an overview of the various Fetch TV packages that are available.

Uniquely, Optus also offers the Fetch Mini as an add-on for many of its mobile phone plans, giving you access to Optus Sport (often provided as part of the plan) for around $5 per month.

Fetch the Future

With its stylishly designed set top boxes with their user-friendly, easy-to-use interface, Fetch TV has hardware that’s worth the price of admission on its own – and on top of that sits a premium TV service that costs a fraction of what you’d pay with the competition. With a loyal and ever-growing customer base, Fetch TV is now a very real alternative for pay TV.
