TPG set to launch Fetch TV

TPG will make Fetch TV services and bundles available to its broadband customers in the coming months.

According to a report in the Australian Financial Review, TPG is on the cusp of announcing bundles that will include the Fetch TV platform for the first time.

It quotes TPG CEO David Teoh as stating that "We haven't introduced yet ... we'll bring out the products in the next few months" when queried about plans to bring Fetch TV services to its broadband customers.

Fetch TV subsidiary iiNet was one of the first ISPs to offer Fetch TV packages to its customers, but that option was effectively dumped when iiNet was acquired by TPG. Customers of iiNet with Fetch TV boxes could still receive the service but no new customers were signed up. It’s not clear if subsidiary TPG brands such as iiNet, Internode or Westnet will once again become Fetch TV providers, but that seems likely, given that the plans across all those providers are now largely identical.

Fetch TV’s current primary ISP partner is Optus. Fetch TV has been active in the local space, most recently launching new set top boxes including the diminutive Fetch TV Mini and adding a range of services including Presto and Spike TV to its offerings.

TPG currently sits in a very strong position in the Australian broadband space, especially for NBN broadband services. Recent analysis suggesting that its own TPG brand has around 10% of all NBN customers while subsidiary iiNet accounted for a further 14% of the local NBN customer base.

      Hi Bill,

      Thanks for your question.

      At the moment, Fetch does not have a timeline as to when the multi-room system will be launched, although Fetch is already working on the two interoperable boxes on one account. Once we have that information, we will feature that on our site so keep on checking in.

      Cheers,
      May
