Fetch TV is an Australian Internet Protocol television (IPTV) founded in July 2010, operating a subscription television service over a user's regular internet service. Fetch TV launched in 2010, backed by its Malaysian parent (40%) Astro All Asia Networks, and is sold through Optus and iiNet companies (iiNet, Internode, Westnet and Adam Internet).
Fetch TV provides a full-featured set top box with a personal video recorder and adds up to 35 subscription channels, radio, video on demand, pay per view movies, web applications, and a mobile app.
The service is delivered by either multicast or ITLS adaptive bitrate streaming. The minimum internet sync speed required varies by ISP delivery method. The majority of Fetch TV content is unmetered when delivered over a broadband connection from a Fetch TV ISP partner.
Fetch TV Australia faces significant opposition in the market place from competitors like Foxtel, Telstra T-Box, Netflix and Hulu, leading to comments by mainstream technology and financial media sources that the service needs to ramp up its subscriber base to progress. In response the company says it has strategies in place to produce success and increase its subscription base significantly.
