iiNet TV with Fetch. Anywhere. Anytime.

25 November 2013: iiNet, the leading challenger in Australia's telecommunications market, is set to put its popular television service in the palm of customers’ hands - anywhere, anytime.

The Fetch TV app has had an awesome upgrade and customers can now use the app to watch their free-to-air recordings on their smart phone or tablet at home, and enjoy selected movies and channels on their mobile devices while on the go.

iiNet TV Product Manager Robert Buckler said the new app would be available for customers in December.

“The launch caps off a massive year for iiNet TV, including rebranding, making the service available for Off Net customers, launching an innovative new set-top-box design and introducing the Entertainment Plus Pack with Disney and ESPN channels, but the best has really been saved for last,” Rob said.

“We’re really excited to be able to give our customers the ability to enjoy iiNet TV with Fetch on multiple screens both at home and while they are out and about. The app links seamlessly to the set-top-box, so customers can take control of their television experience like never before.”

Available for iPhones, iPads and our awesome range of Samsung handsets and tablets, the app means that customers will never have to miss their favourite shows again.

Once paired with their iiNet TV set-top-box, customers can use their smartphone handset and tablet as a remote control and to:

  • view standard definition free-to-air recordings from their set-top-box  at home
  • search for favourite shows in the TV Guide without interrupting what they are watching on their main screen
  • setup recordings and series tags directly from a smartphone or tablet at home or out and about
  • search, browse and rent the latest movies available on Fetch while on the move and have them ready to watch on TV at home

Customers subscribed to the Entertainment Plus pack will now be able to use their tablet or smartphone to watch all available Movie Box films plus most of the Entertainment Plus channels over their home wireless network, or on 3G/LTE while they are on the go. A total of three devices can be registered for streaming, and up to two devices can be used at the same time. Customers will receive an alert from the app when viewing content on 3G/LTE - to avoid bill shock from accidental data usage.

Customers who already have the Fetch TV Remote installed, can simply do an update and the new features will become instantly available. Otherwise, customers can visit /tv/ to download the link and see details of the app’s features.

First launched in 2010, iiNet TV has gone from strength to strength with more than 20,000 customers across iiNet, Westnet and Internode brands.
