Fetch subscribers get 11 international news channels for free


Fetch TV News

Fetch is making it easier for users to stay on top of the latest news from around the world.

If you're a Fetch user, your subscription has just been upgraded for free. For three months, the company is offering everyone access to 11 international news channels for free. The list of channels includes BBC World News, CNN, MSNBC, Al Jazeera, euronews, France 24, NDTV 24x7, Channel News Asia, and CGTN, CNBC and Bloomberg.

The offer is meant to help users stay informed with what's going on around the world in the context of the current coronavirus pandemic. It should also enable subscribers with loved ones who are located outside Australia keep better track of the latest developments from overseas.

The 11 channels, two of which focus on financial news (CNBC and Bloomberg) are part of the Knowledge Channel Pack, generally priced at $6/month. They're also already available to anyone subscribed to the Ultimate Channels Pack, which costs $20/month and offers access to all premium channels available on Fetch.

How to take advantage of the Fetch offer

The offer kicks in Monday, 23 March, at 9am. The channels will roll out to all customers over 24 hours. To speed up the process, you can restart your Fetch box and gain immediate access.

If you're already subscribed to the Knowledge or Ultimate pack, you will continue to be charged for your subscription.
