Choose a suitable Fetch TV bundle to start watching your favourite shows and movies!
Have your entertainment needs taken care of with Fetch TV. It brings all the great channels you’ll ever need, the latest movies and shows, and the hassle-free way to access apps like Netflix and Stan. Just choose between Fetch Mini or Mighty, get a channel pack, plug in to your internet, and start watching anything you like.
How it works
You have two options for the standalone Fetch TV set-top box, with the Mighty at $449 RRP, and the Mini at $169 RRP – both of which come with a $1 one-off activation fee. But to get a better deal out of your purchase, it’s best to get a Fetch TV set top box with a broadband bundle to maximise the features and make use of more freebies. You can then add premium packs from $6/month — Vibe, Knowledge, Variety, and Kids; or select all packs for $20/month. There’s no lock-in contract, you can cancel anytime.
Entertainment like no other only from Fetch TV
Go Mini or Go Mighty
The best things come in small packages. With Fetch Mini, you can enjoy free-to-air catch-up TV, access to multiple apps like Netflix, and purchase the newest shows from the TV store. There are over 8,000 movies to rent or buy, too. For added convenience, you can pause and rewind live TV when you need to. Plus score free 30 pre-selected films per month. You can buy Fetch Mini in retail for $169 or get it with a broadband plan. For a great deal, you can bundle Fetch Mini with any of Aussie Broadband’s NBN plans for only $10/month or get iPrimus’ internet + entertainment plan starting from $90/month, including your choice of one premium channel pack plus more bonuses. Dodo Broadband also offers Fetch Mini for $15/month.
Fancy a sweet upgrade? Get the Fetch Mighty instead at $449. It delivers all the things that Fetch Mini offers and more — 4K viewing for one. With Fetch Mighty, you can record up to 585 hours of SD TV and record 6 shows at once. And if you just want to see things from a larger perspective, literally, Fetch Mighty is your go-to box. Both the Mini and Mighty have a $1 activation fee with no ongoing cost for the starter pack. You can opt to choose a channel pack for as low as $6/month. Purchase it in retail for $449 or bundle it with any of Aussie Broadband’s internet plans for an additional $15/month or with Dodo’s unlimited broadband plan for an extra $20/month.

Frequently Asked Questions about Fetch TV
No – and you most likely never will. Fetch is, in many ways, a direct competitor to Foxtel and Foxtel Now, providing a pay TV set top box but using broadband internet to deliver channels. If you’re keen to try Foxtel Now, we’d recommend picking up either the Foxtel Now box or the Telstra TV 3.
No – as a Foxtel company, Kayo is unlikely to ever be made available as a Fetch TV app, a side effect of the competition between the two companies. For Kayo access on a TV, we’d recommend either the Apple TV 4 or the Telstra TV 3, both superb devices for Kayo and many other streaming services. If you’d rather not spend too much, though, Google’s Chromecast does the trick in conjunction with your smartphone.
Yes, absolutely – as long as you have the Fetch Mighty box. That powerful device lets you record multiple channels at the same time. The Fetch Mini doesn’t allow recording at all, but contains a small amount of memory so that you can pause live TV for up to around half an hour, or rewind and replay as needed. You can also browse and stream recordings from a Fetch Mighty on the same home network.
Fetch recommends that you avoid buying a second hand box, because the previous owner will likely have registered it to their account and ISP, and that can’t be changed. If the seller bought their box outright from a retailer, then you can use the box – but you’d want to be 100% sure or you’ll end up with an expensive paperweight!
Yes – if you purchase a Fetch Mini or Mighty outright at a retailer, you can use it with an broadband provider once you’ve got the box set up and activated. Of course, a broadband plan with unlimited data is almost mandatory, since Fetch’s channels all work via continuous broadband streaming.
Yes! Fetch has a free app for both iOS and Android that you can download and pair with your Fetch box. Then you’ll be able to stream TV from it – including your recordings – anywhere you are. You can also download purchased or rented shows and movies to your phone to watch later without using precious mobile data.
No – the rights to HBO in Australia are owned by Foxtel, so you’ll find HBO’s shows there as well as on their on-demand streaming service Binge. You can still purchase HBO shows from the Fetch TV store, though.
While it’s a case of “never say never,” Disney doesn’t seem to have any plans to bring their app to Fetch TV for the time being.
You can use Fetch’s Mighty and Mini without an internet connection to watch free-to-air broadcasts and recordings, but only for a few days. After that you’ll see a message that the box is locked, and you’ll need to connect it to the internet to keep using it.
Yes – all of Fetch’s premium channels are delivered via broadband internet streaming, so they use data for as long as you watch them. Of course, other apps such as Netflix also use data. We’d recommend a broadband plan with unlimited data if you’re going to use Fetch TV.
To order a replacement remote, sign into your Fetch account on their web site, head to “Account Settings” then “Hardware Replacement” and select “Remote Control”.
To restart your Fetch box, go into Settings and head to Device Info, then Options, and choose Fetch TV Box Restart. If you’re unable to access menus, try turning off power to the box, waiting 30 seconds then powering it up again.
Turning subtitles off and on is easy – just press the Text button on your Fetch remote! It’s right above the Apps button.
If you’ve purchased a Fetch box second hand and found that it’s locked, unfortunately there is no way to unlock it – it’s likely owned by the ISP that originally provided it.
You need to make sure that the cable from your free-to-air antenna is plugged into the back of the Fetch box – then just scan for available channels during the initial setup of the box, and you’ll then find those channels in your Electronic Program Guide to watch and record.
Unlike Foxtel, Fetch TV doesn’t come with any default channels. However, most ISPs that provide Fetch also give you a choice of one channel pack at no extra cost (and often, 30 free movies a month as well). You can look at the various channel packs and what they include – as well as the speciality channels available – on the Fetch web site.
While it’s an Australian company that’s operated for a decade now, Fetch TV is operated in partnership with Malaysian pay TV company Astro All Asia Networks.
