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 TV and premium channels. The Fetch boxes also provide access to apps for other streaming services that you might use, such as Netflix, Disney+, Stan, Prime Video, Paramount+, hayu, Britbox and YouTube.

Additionally, the Mighty box has a 1 terabyte hard drive, so you can record up to 585 hours of TV.

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

All your entertainment, easy.

All Fetch plans from Aussie Broadband also include Movie Box, which brings you 30 free pre-selected movies at any time, with a new one added daily. Check out what movies are currently available on Movie Box here.

Movie Box

Movie Box is a feature that lets you enjoy 30 movies every month, with a new one added every day. You can choose from a variety of genre – such as kids, comedy, action, drama, and more.

You can watch the movies on your Fetch box or on your mobile app. Movie Box is included in all of Aussie Broadband’s Fetch subscriptions, and is great excuse to call your mates over for regular movie nights in!

Remote control with Voice Search

No more typing, just use your voice to search across movies, TV shows, channels and streaming apps with the Fetch Bluetooth Voice Remote, - included with the Fetch Mini box and available from Fetch directly here.

Multi-room viewing

Fetch Multiroom is a feature that allows you to connect up to three Fetch boxes (maximum one Mighty box and two Mini units) from the same account to enjoy different shows in different rooms of your house.

You can share rentals, purchases, and Channel Pack subscriptions between the boxes, as well as watch recordings done on your Mighty box from another room.

Fetch Multiroom is useful for large households where different people have different preferences and schedules for watching TV. You can avoid fighting over the remote and watch what you want – and when you want – with Fetch Multiroom!

What do I need to use Fetch with my TV?

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

Even with an unlimited internet plan, streaming can demand higher speeds (especially if you love 4K content!). To calculate roughly how much speed you’ll need while running Fetch or other video streaming services, we recommend checking out our guide on How much download speed does streaming use?.
