There are so many options for TV and streaming today that it can be hard to keep track of everything you want to watch. Fetch will help you simplify your home entertainment. 

What is Fetch?

Fetch is a small box that plugs into your TV and works over your Aussie Broadband nbn™ connection. It brings together loads of the entertainment you love, all in one place with one simple menu and one remote.

Basically, Fetch is an entertainment hub that the whole family can enjoy together!

There are two Fetch boxes to choose from – the Mini and the Mighty. They can be used to watch, pause and rewind Free-to-Air and premium TV channels, and they also have apps for other streaming services that you might use, such as Netflix, Stan, hayu, 10 All Access* and YouTube. 

Additionally, the Mighty has a 1 terabyte hard drive so you can record up to 585 hours of TV. It is also 4K capable so you can watch 4K content**.

Once a Fetch box is connected to your TV, you’ll never need another option for all of your entertainment.

What’s available through Fetch?

Fetch combines the best of all worlds. It provides big screen access to fee-based subscriptions such as Netflix, Stan, hayu and 10 All Access, plus access to free apps such as YouTube, ABC iView, 7Plus etc. You can also add Fetch channel packs from just $6 each per month with Aussie Broadband – and there are no lock-in contracts .

With Fetch, you can access 45+ channels across four channel packs:

Fetch Channel Packs

  • Vibe (includes ESPN, E!, MTV, Comedy Central and more).

It’s possible to buy each of these streaming packages separately for just $6 each per month if you’re only interested in one or two of them. Alternatively, you can buy the “Ultimate Pack”, which gives you access to all the channels for just $20 per month. Fetch allows you to add or remove channel packs at any time, which makes it easy for you to manage both your viewing and your budget.

In addition to those packs, there are special interest options for additional costs. If you’re a sports lover, for example, there are heaps of options for you including the beIN SPORTS Pack, Optus Sport, and UFC Pay Per View.

In addition, you have access to the TV Store where you can buy individual episodes or entire seasons of hundreds of popular shows including Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Suits, Big Little Lies and many more.

What do I need to run Fetch?

Fetch requires a quality broadband internet connection to run, such as an unlimited nbn™ plan from Aussie Broadband. You’ll also need a TV and an antenna to access Free-to-Air TV. 

To calculate roughly how much data you’d use while running Fetch, or other video streaming services, work off a baseline of 3GB/hour for HD streaming, and 700MB/hour for standard quality streaming. Additionally, assume that you’d use another 15GB or so worth of data from browsing the internet, using social media, and so on.
