Fetch TV is upping its game. The service now allows users to buy TV episodes and movies, not only rent. The move makes Fetch TV the first Pay TV provider in Australia to offer subscribers the option to purchase their favourite TV shows and the latest movies.
Starting today, Fetch TV subscribers are able to download-to-own TV shows from leading content providers such as HBO, 20th Century Fox, Roadshow Entertainment, Disney, Entertainment One, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, ABC Commercial, and Viacom International Media Works. The new TV Store will feature popular titles including Game of Thrones, Veep, True Detective, Entourage, True Blood, Empire, The Walking Dead,Broadchurch, Sons of Anarchy, Nashville, and many more.
“Fetch TV is committed to providing access to the very best in premium content,” said Scott Lorson, CEO of Fetch TV. “Fetch TV subscribers can now purchase entire seasons of the most popular TV shows, including the latest season of Game of Thrones,” he added.
Moreover, Fetch TV subscribers are also able to purchase, as well as rent, movies from its extensive library of over 4,000 titles from 15 leading studios. Many new release titles will be available for purchase on Fetch TV two or more weeks prior to their DVD release dates.
TV shows and movies can be viewed via the Fetch TV box, with purchases also available to stream to smartphones and tablets via the Fetch TV app. Pricing for TV shows will be $2.99 (SD) and $3.49 (HD) per episode, with discounts available for the purchase of full seasons. Movie pricing will vary by title.
“Fetch TV is enjoying record subscriber growth on the back of a series of bold content initiatives. In February, we introduced nine more leading channels including the highly acclaimed BBC First. The launch of Netflix in March has proven wildly successful, and we are expecting another very strong response to the popular TV shows and movies now available for purchase on Fetch TV,” Lorson also said.
