  • Download the Fetch Mobi App from the App Store or Google Play.
  • Pair it with your Fetch box

Integrated Universal Search

There are a lot of great shows and movies on Fetch, which may make finding what you want to watch a challenge. Never fear – the Universal Search function is here to help. Simply type in what you’re looking for, whether that be a movie, TV show, cast or crew info, or even a quote like “I’ll be back”, and Universal Search will search across Free-to-Air TV, streaming apps, recordings, the Fetch TV and Movie Stores, and more. If it’s out there, Universal Search will fetch it for you!

Just open the Fetch menu and select the magnifying glass at the top of the screen to start a new search.

TV Guide and Reverse Mode

If you’re more of a browser than a searcher, you’ll love the Fetch TV Guide. You can manage your favourite channels for easy access, with shortcuts to shows and recording options^. The handy Reverse mode will help make sure you don’t miss any episodes – it lets you go backwards up to 24 hours and catch up on select shows.

Hit the TV Guide button on your Fetch remote to have a look.
