Fetch TV is onto its third generation of boxes. With this iteration, it’s introducing two new devices – the Mighty and the Mini.The sleek, ultra-modern design of the Fetch Mighty includes a stylish slim remote.The Mighty is a home entertainment beast.
It does it all. It aims to claim that coveted HDMI1 socket on the big LCD HDTV in your lounge room. And it has the features to make it happen.
These include a 1TB hard drive that lets you record up to 585 hours of SD programing, as well as four tuners. Which means you can record up to six programs while watching a seventh. And if something happens while you’re watching? Just pause or rewind.
You can download your purchased content to this device, and then stream it to watch on your TV, tablet or smartphone.
Purchased outright, Fetch TV Mighty will cost you $399RRP. It is also available through select ISPs included in selected broadband bundles, or at a monthly cost starting from $10/month.
The Mini is the high-powered, low-cost alternative. It can access the same content, but lacks recording and 4K capabilities. However, its lower price point makes it an attractive option.
It can access all of the same content as the Mighty, and is set to compete directly with similar SVOD products like Apple TV and Telstra TV.
The RRP for the Fetch TV Mini is $149. You can buy the Mini from Harvey Norman, Domayne, Joyce Mayne or JB Hi-Fi stores. It is also included in select bundles, or can be added as a bolt on.The tiny Fetch Mini fits anywhere, but still gives you a full-sized remote control.
