What is Fetch?

Monday, June 20th, 2022 by

Gone are the days of the humble video shop with scratched CDs and late fees. In the last 10 years, video streaming has blossomed into a better way to watch our favourite shows and movies, alongside the benefits of live TV. You may already know about Netflix, Disney+, Stan, Prime Video and Paramount+* but there’s one platform where you can watch them all and more that you may not know about: Fetch. 

In this article, we’ll look at what Fetch is and how you can use it. Even if you’ve used the platform before, you might discover a useful trick or two!

What is Fetch?

Fetch is an entertainment platform that delivers your favourite content straight to your TV. Getting started with Fetch is easy – you’ll just need:

  • A broadband internet connection
  • A Fetch subscription
  • A Fetch Mini or Mighty box with remote control
  • A TV and antenna

Connect Fetch to your TV, antenna and broadband, and you’re ready to start watching!

Pro tip: To watch Free-to-Air TV channels on Fetch, you will need to have your Fetch box connected to your TV antenna. Running a channel scan will provide access to available channels.

Fetch is designed to be as simple and intuitive as possible, taking the hassle out of finding the shows and movies you want to watch. The Fetch Mini and Mighty boxes are packed to the brim with heaps of handy features to improve life in your living room, including:

  • A comprehensive TV Guide with Reverse mode to catch up on select shows you may have missed in the past 24 hours.
  • Universal Search across all channels, streaming apps, recordings** and the Fetch TV and Movie Stores.
  • Pause and Rewind live TV so you won’t miss part of your show if you need to take an unexpected break.

Schedule recordings of up to 585 hours of TV for later viewing, and record up to 6 channels at once (Fetch Mighty boxes only).

Getting started

Once your Fetch Mini or Mighty has come to life, you’ll instantly get access to:

You can also add on Premium Channel Packs from only $6 per month each, including:

  • Variety Pack – Character-driven drama, classic shows, music to dance to and more.
  • Knowledge Pack – News and factual storytelling from around the world to inspire inquisitive minds.
  • Vibe Pack – The latest sports, music, comedy, reality TV and more.
  • Kids Pack – Curated for kids of all ages to keep the fun and learning coming.

Can’t decide? Get the whole lot with the 45+ channel Ultimate Pack for only $20 per month!

P.S. – If you’re into UFC, you can also access the big fights live on Pay Per View with Fetch.

Streaming apps

Chances are you already have one or more video streaming subscriptions. Fetch makes it easy to access and switch between them via one simple menu! Simply sign in with your existing subscriptions for easy access to Netflix, Disney+, Stan, Prime Video, Paramount+* and more, including YouTube. You can also sign up for some of these apps directly via your Fetch box.

Subscriptions required for streaming apps.

Fetch Movie & TV Stores

Looking for a great night in? The Fetch Movie Store has thousands of titles available to rent or buy, or you can check out the TV Store with a huge range of your favourite shows to buy. With everything from the latest must-watch releases to cult classics, you can skip the cinema and chill out in the comfort of your own home (with better snacks, too).

Fetch Mobi App

Your TV isn’t the only way you can enjoy Fetch. Thanks to the Fetch Mobi App, you can watch all of your subscription channels on your phone anywhere in Australia using your mobile data or a WiFi connection. The Mobi App also lets you:

  • Download selected movies and TV shows for offline viewing;
  • Schedule recordings** while on the go;
  • Use the app as a backup Fetch remote complete with voice control;
  • Browse the TV guide to set reminders for shows you want to watch, and more.

Fetch Multiroom

Why stop at just one Fetch box? If you’ve got a larger household, a Fetch Multiroom setup may be perfect for you. Fetch Multiroom allows you to share access to all your channels, shows, movies and recordings** across multiple Fetch boxes. You can have up to two additional Fetch Mini boxes in different rooms of your home to make sure that everyone gets to watch what they want with no more fighting over the remote.

Standard setup and monthly subscription charges apply for each Fetch Multiroom box.

How to get Fetch with Internode

If you have an eligible Internode broadband service, you can choose to get your Fetch box and monthly subscription with us rather than a third-party retailer. That means you can enjoy Fetch with the added benefit of friendly tech support from our Customer Service team.
