Thursday, April 20th, 2017 by

Imagine you’re trying to learn about cats using a computer. You do a keyword search, only… nothing comes up. Perhaps you’re not using the right keywords? Are you sure the information is even on this computer? Finally, someone gives you a floppy disk, but it turns out your computer can’t read it, so you go to a different computer. Now you have a new problem: you have no idea how to use the software. You give up on all this computer stuff and ask someone to teach you about cats over a cup of coffee.

Welcome to sharing information in 1989. Thankfully it’s not that hard these days, thanks to Tim Berners-Lee and the invention of the World Wide Web, an application that is crucial to viewing content shared over the internet.

The next big thing in Fetch TV

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017 by

With a robust TV and movie offering and a user-friendly set top box supporting features such as Catch-Up TV, popular streaming apps and the ability to pause live TV, Fetch already has a lot to offer as a digital pay TV service. But wait, there’s more!

Fetch brings something that many pay TV services on the market these days are missing, and that’s the ability to tailor your subscription to better suit your preferences.

Too often, customers are expected to pay high prices for inflexible TV products which may only include a few channels they want to watch. Our friends at Fetch have come up with a customer-friendly solution for this with their new add-on channel packs!

By splitting up their premium channels into four themed add-on channel packs, they give you the ability to pick your preferred packs without having to pay for channel packs that you don’t want. That means you can get the premium entertainment you want at an affordable monthly price.

Let’s take a look at the great range of add-on channel packs available with a $5/month standard Fetch subscription and a Mini set top box. The best bit? Each add-on channel pack costs just $6/month!

Kids Pack

If you’ve got little ones, this Kids Pack is a must-have with all the big names in kid’s programming – Disney, Disney XD, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Zoo Moo. If your little ones are very little, you’ll appreciate that the pack also includes quality young children’s programming across Disney Junior, Nick Jr, CBeebies and BabyTV.
