Presto now available on Fetch TV
Presto extends its streaming reach with a dedicated Fetch TV app.
While Presto, Foxtel’s take on a streaming application started with a relatively low number of connected device options, it has slowly been expanding the devices and places where you can watch its streaming TV and movie options.
Fetch TV is the latest platform to add Presto compatibility, joining the existing PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Telstra TV and Chromecast options. Presto will be available on the third generation Fetch TV PVR from today. Owners of the second generation Fetch TV will gain Presto compatibility from July, alongside the newer Fetch TV mini device when that launches.
The addition of Presto compatibility to Fetch TV puts it in an interesting competitive space in the Australian set top box arena. Fetch TV already supports Presto competitors Netflix and Stan, so adding Presto gives it the Australian streaming trifecta, similar to Telstra’s Telstra TV set top box.
Optus still remains the ISP pushing Fetch as a service most consistently, with many higher-end Optus broadband packages including a Fetch TV box as part of the overall subscription. You can alternatively buy a Fetch TV box outright and connect it through any other broadband connection.
