Upgrade your TV diet: welcome to iiNet TV with Fetch

IINET_01 - In situ

Is your TV diet looking a little lacklustre? Tired of watching the same repeats, day in, day out? Well my friends, variety is the spice of life and there’s never been a better time to dine in at home with iiNet and Fetch.

Welcome to iiNet TV with Fetch!

iiNet TV with Fetch is a set-top box that gives your household access to more TV channels and movies than you can poke a fork at. All the features that you loved about the original set-top box are back: a 1 terabyte PVR, 3 digital tuners and easy to navigate menus.

You also get the best of two worlds: everything delivered through your existing rapid-fire iiNet broadband connection but it won’t impact your monthly data use. Tasty.

Better than ever

Thanks to some behind the scenes magic, this second-generation set-top box ensures that content now comes faster than ever before and with snappier performance. Switch between channels as fast as those fingers can click!

The new set-top box also runs cooler thanks to an external power supply. So you can get hot and steamy while watching Ryan Gosling but your set-top box won’t. The new set-top box even comes in two colours: classic black or sleek white.

So what’s on the menu?

Some of us like classic fish and chips, while others prefer the pan-fried salmon with a side of veg. Meanwhile the kids still won’t eat their crusts.

Whatever your palate, iiNet TV with Fetch lets you cater to the different TV tastes and appetites in your household.

iiNet TV – Starter

This is your entrée sampler into the world of iiNet TV with Fetch.

  • You’ll get all the free-to-air TV channels including the digital channels that are available in your area.
  • Pause, rewind and record live TV.
  • Record entire TV series and watch them whenever you want.
  • Record two channels while watching another. (No more arguments over who controls the remote.)

  • Record and browse TV shows, movies and trailers with the Fetch TV mobile app (available on iOS and Android).
  • Use the My Media Hub on the set-top box to play your favourite videos, photos or music tracks. You can also browse and play rich media content stored on compatible devices through your home computer network or connected USB devices.

iiNet TV – Entertainment

For those who prefer a smorgasbord of choice, the Entertainment package is sure to satisfy. In addition to everything in the Starter package you’ll also get:

  • 30 more channels. Whether it’s news or fashion, nature documentaries or lifestyle, catch up on all your favourite TV series. (Never miss Jersey Shore again!)
  • With TV on demand you can catch up on all those series that you love, from family friendly children’s videos (Gekko) to the latest concerts from around the world (Moshcam).
  • Bring out the popcorn- with Movie Box, all movies are free to watch. With 30 on-demand movies at any given time and a new title added daily, there’ll always be something to watch.

Exotic flavours

A little bit of this, two helpings of that… now you can pick and choose whatever takes your fancy.

  • Setanta Sports and Ovation can be added to your contract for an additional cost.

    Hi,

    My husband and I have enjoyed Fetch TV, but due to not being able to watch The Rugby (we’re kiwi’s and love watching the All Blacks) we are considering cancelling our Fetch and changing over to Foxtel.
    Will you’s be televising any rugby at all this year?

    Kind regards

    All Blacks Fans :-)

    Obvious question: what are the up front & monthly costs for each plan?

  11. Jaspar Goodman says:

    How are you offering this ‘amazing’ new service when you still have customers that have an inoperational fetch tv? My service has been off for 3 weeks now with no communication from iinet as to when it will be restored.

    • Adam O'grady says:

      Hi Jaspar,

      If your iiNet TV with Fetch service is still down, we would recommend getting in contact with us on 13 22 58 and our team can run through some diagnostics to see if we can get you back online. There was an outage a few weeks ago that caused issues with IPoE customers (FetchTV services) however this has since been resolved. If a temporary fix was put in place on your account during that outage so you could browse the internet, you may need to call us to have it returned to a normal connection setting.

      Regards,
      Adam

  14. Renate Polglaze says:

    What is the cost of the device with only Starter pkg?
    What is the cost with the additional entertainement pkg?
    Would I have to update my current contract?
    Regards Renate Polglaze

  15. James Parkinson says:

    Hi

    I am already an iinet ciustomer and have Fetch TV, its excellent.

    Will the new box be sent to me? This would be fantastic if it was, it would allow my friends to see the excellent product and give me a trendy gadget to promote.

    I do hope I will be receiving one of these…

    Thanks

    James

  16. john says:

  17. Peter Spork says:

    How much power does the iinet TV use on standby?

  18. Eric says:

    Cheers

  19. Sean says:

    Looks really good, but I will wait till the pricing improves…a lot.

  20. Bharat (Barry) says:

    I would like to know whether Fetch TV Set top box can be available in the area where ADSL2 connections are not yet accessible. We are in area where only ADSL1 connection is available.

    SO please let us know and what it will cost to us if it is a possibility

  21. Margaret says:

    So, what happens to to your customers who have Fetch TV now and are paying monthly rental? are you going to upgrade us to this new ‘Better than ever’ set top box?

  22. eric rawlings says:

    yes i already have a blu-ray recorder/player…………does this make any difference………….can this be hooked up to a pc………please explain further…….thankyou

  23. Allen Smith says:

    Read all the benefits of fetch TV several times, but not once was the price mentioned.
    Hate mind games.

  24. David Hoy says:

    If you are able to bring Fox Sports on and offer a competitive price inclusive of broadband and phone then Fetch TV starts to look very attractive.

    Fix Sports is the only sticking point for me.

    Regards,

    Dave

  25. Cliff Perrin says:

    My understanding, is that future tv’s will haveto change sound systems to MP4 playback. Thisis apparently already in the pipeline. How will this affect your Fetch TV PVR?
    I believe that tv’s without upgrade paths on the circuit board will become obsolete and of no more use.

  26. vivian says:

    What channels do you get for this ?

  27. Frank Sahin says:

    Great write up Natalie, are you sure you’re not in media?
    I would suggest you have your own column :) ’cause I actually enjoyed reading an (essentially) advertisement :))
    Unfortunately, I’m not having much luck with my existing STB… it keeps crashing! (5 to 15 times a day). It was replaced with another STB recently (same version different box) but still no love :( aargh!
    Any suggestions???

    Kindest Regards,

  28. Garry Rose says:

    I would like to know what cost of set top box, and what changes to my internet connection and downloads if any, where do i get the box from , how is it delivered, how easy is it to connect to tv.

  29. pranav says:

    Hi,

    I have just signed up for IINET NBN connection at our new house. I would like to know how I can get IINet fetch TV.

    • Adam O'grady says:

      Hi Jvanryn,

      The three months free FetchTV promotion has since concluded, so we are no longer able to offer it as a trial for FetchTV. If you are interested in iiNet TV with Fetch, you can give us a call on 13 19 17 to order it.

      Regards,
      Adam

  31. Michael Berry says:

    on the new set top box is the start up time significantly reduced?
    if the new box is much better is it possible to switch boxes and if so can current content stored on a box be cloned?

  32. damien says:

    hi

    • Adam O'grady says:

      Hi Damien,

      Thank you for your comment, I’ve taken a look at your account and it appears that this is already under investigation by our iiNet TV with Fetch team.

      Regards,
      Adam

  33. Bill says:

    Would like to have Fetch TV etc. at my place. However, because I am here in the east, I cannot do without my Rugby League telecasts every week. Soccer and VFL (ah…. AFL) are not my choice of sports.
    If Fetch had Rugby League telecasts, I would not hesitate.
    Thanks
    Bill

  34. Scott says:

    Hi Natalie,
    Awesome post. Just wanted to know if current Fetch subscribers are able to get an upgrade to this new version please?
    Thanks!

  35. JEFF says:

    SO HOW MUCH IS THE MONTHLY FEE TO CONNECT TO II NET TV WITH FETCH. ?????

  36. phil bloomfield says:

    The Entertainment pack sound good and will get it when its available :-( Will I need to wait until NBN is here?

    • Adam O'grady says:

      The Entertainment pack for iiNet TV with Fetch is available on NBN, but it’s also available on some iiNet-enabled exchanges. If you jump onto our FetchTV website (http://www.iinet.net.au/fetchtv/) and down the bottom you can enter your phone number or iiNet username and it checks if you can get the Entertainment pack.

      Regards,
      Adam

  37. Bryon Archer says:

    We have an old 26inch TV and would love a nice set top box to go with a 55inch smart TV to keep up us up to the latest in technology. Regards Bryon & Beverley Archer.

  38. Lynn says:

    The only thing that keeps me on foxtel is the sport, Rugby/NRL/A-League. Yours sounds great, but I don’t have the entertainment or movies only their standard plus sport. Setanta is not going to show the local in those sports.

  39. karunakarnkutty says:

    You say that the set up box for new customers only. You must actually serve old loyal customers first. That is actually a better process to maintain loyal customers.
    Seems you are only interested in future new income…

  40. Ronald Palmer says:

    Will this new top box fit and fully functional on a Samsung T/V that already has additional channels ??

  41. malcolm says:

    Hi, I have fetch already,
    if I upgrade to the new box will it cost any money and how will I be able to do this?
    Thanks. Mal……

  42. Stu says:

    Is this version compatible with bonded DSL? I was told that the original fetch tv device would not work with a bonded setup but they were working on it.
    Thanks.

  43. Fernando says:

    Any chances I could get Fetch TV on my computer? The reason I don’t watch much television these days is that I don’t have space for a TV in my computer room. Now get me Fetch TV online and I will be the first to sign up.

  44. Adam says:

    Is it high definition or 3d?

  45. Erin says:

    How much is the new iinet Fetch TV. Is it on a plan? Thanks

  46. Matt says:

    Is the new box intelligent enough to record only NEW episodes of a series, rather than all? This was a MAJOR let down in the previous version and is why I went back to my ICETV powered PVR.

  47. Stanley Jones says:

    I am keen to sign up for iinet TV.
    Call me on xxxxxxxxxx.
    Thanks
    Stanley.

    • Adam O'grady says:

      Hi Stanley,

      I’ve just taken a look at your account and we’ll need to wait until your service is connected before you can sign up to Naked DSL. Once it is connected, give us a call on 13 19 17 and we’ll get you hooked up to iiNet TV with Fetch.

      Regards,
      Adam

  48. Nico Claassen says:

    It sounds very nice but it would be better if I can get ADSL2+ or naked DSL first!!!!!!!!

    I cant believe in this day and age that you cant help me with ADSL2+ or naked DSL!

    Regards
    Nico Claassen

    • Adam O'grady says:

      Hi Nico,

      We try and bring ADSL2+ and Naked DSL served via iiNet DSLAMs to all exchanges and locations that we easily can. Unfortunately in some cases, it’s not possible to install our equipment as the local exchange might not have adequate cooling, power or space to install and run new equipment in. In these cases, we still try and provide ADSL/ADSL2+ through a different wholesale provider via our off-net plans.

      Regards,
      Adam

  53. Shakeela Abdul Shukkur says:

    Really interested in FetchTV. Are you able to advise me how much it would cost me to set it up with Bollywood movies, also do you provide South Indian channels.

    Thirdly if it uses cable, can I change my internet to cable and how much will it cost me to have a package deal?

  56. Rob says:

    Hi Natalie
    We’re an iiNet customer, thinking of changing over to IPTV -Fetch via iiNet.
    Could you tell me this: is it possible to record free to air NRL and AFL programs to the Fetch STB? Or does the recent Optus Now TV ruling by the high court prevent this?
    If the latter I feel I am being pushed towards Foxtel…
    Thanks, Rob

    • Natalie Marinho says:

      Hi Rob,

      Yes, you can record all free-to-air channels via the iiNet TV Set Top Box PVR (personal video recorder). You can also record all the Entertainment channels as well. I hope this information helps “nudge” you towards iiNet TV with Fetch… :)

      Regards,

    Heads Up! I have had Fetch TV for 2 years and it has worked well – a lot of crap on it but a few interesting things, the good thing is the STB/Recorder … it makes a world of difference being able to set & record all TV. THEN CAME THE UPGRADE! Well my Fritzbox modem got a firmware update which knocked out about 10 of the channels and can’t fix it unless the Fritz mob issue another update … I won’t hold my breathe for that!
    Then FETCH just issued a new software version called Bondi (done automatically) and this wiped out the Fetch Android App. I had it on three devices and it worked beaut. By using a TV sender we were able to watch Fetch in another room and control the STB using the app on our phone or tablet. No more though until Fetch decide to issue an App update. Took hours of checking everything and rebooting reinstalling the app over and over. Bloody shame they couldn’t test these things before they release them – reminiscent of MS eh? – The system is good value all things considered. – Grant
