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!
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.
Here’s one for a slightly older crowd – although kids could still learn a thing or two! The Knowledge Pack has a wide selection of informative channels to boost your general knowledge and prep you for your next quiz night including documentaries, lifestyle networks and news channels. With channels including, BBC Knowledge, BBC World News, National Geographic, CNN, Travel, Aljazeera, Food Network and more, the Knowledge Pack is your key to information from across the globe.
Sports fans and people with their fingers on the pulse of pop culture will all enjoy the range of channels in the Vibe Pack! Keep up with the latest sports and action on ESPN, ESPN2, Garage and Edge Sports or find out what’s “so hot right now” on Style, Fashion TV and E! Entertainment. There’s a ton of comedy, music and reality TV to be had on Comedy Central, Spike, MTV, MTV Music, MTV Dance and Egg Network.
No matter which genre you’re into, you’re bound to find something great to watch in the Variety Pack. Whether you’re seeking drama, comedy, action, romance, thriller, science fiction, or just some nice tunes to liven up the house, the Variety pack has you covered. The lineup includes BBC First, BBC UK TV, Syfy, Universal, 13th Street, 111 very funny, and MTV Classic.
