iPrimus – Fetch TV Unlimited Bundle
Now in the very capable hands of massive Australian fibre network provider Vocus, iPrimus was fairly late to the Fetch TV party. Despite the fact that its sister company Dodo has offered it for a long time. Backed by a well-provisioned network, iPrimus has long been a great choice for broadband (and now NBN). They provide a solid, reliable and speedy service with everything bundled in; home phone line rental, as well as local and national calls are included.
Head to the iPrimus web site looking for info on this Fetch bundle, though, and you’ll find yourself puzzled. It’s hard to find. The reason for this? Well, it’s not really a bundle at all. Rather, you pay for a Fetch TV service on top of your monthly broadband plan. That plan, whether on ADSL or NBN, must be unlimited-data.
So for ADSL, the unlimited data plan is $80/month, plus another $10/month for the superbly capable Fetch TV Mighty box. And if all you want is a PVR to record and play free-to-air TV and stream Netflix and Stan – and the base Fetch TV channels, similar to Foxtel’s Entertainment Pack – you’re set. Fetch also offers premium streaming TV channels (see below for details) which are $6/month each – or $20/month for all 42 channels. If you don’t want to pay for the premium channels, you still get access to 30 free pre-selected rental movies every month delivered right to your Fetch TV box.
The total cost, then? $90/month for unlimited ADSL and the Mighty box, or $110 with all the premium channels. The same price applies to NBN at the medium (50Mbps) speed tier.
