Get your sci-fi fix with Fetch

Thursday, May 24th, 2018 by

The term science fiction was established in the 1920s by one of the genre’s principal advocates, American publisher Hugo Gernsback. Science fiction, also referenced as SF or sci-fi, refers to speculative fiction. Whether it be super advanced science, technology developments that are years ahead of our time, aliens and other extraterrestrial life, time travel, or spaceflight, sci-fi delves into these topics and takes a look at how they would impact society.

Science fiction has rocked cinemas for a century, creating some of the boldest movies and a number of undisputed classics along the way. With so many great sci-fi movies arriving on the big screen in recent times, we’ve rustled up a few shows and movies available in the Fetch Movie Store and TV Store that will satisfy your sci-fi needs.
