Fetch TV launches new Mini and Mighty set top boxes – their best yet and a market leader: Review

Fetch TV is a business that’s been on a long and steady journey that seems to have been aimed squarely at where we are today – a connected, Internet viewing world where entertainment on your big-screen TV can come in any form and from a variety of sources. Fetch TV is the box that can do more than any other and they’ve just launched their 3rd generation of boxes.

Having used the Fetch TV “Gen 2” box for some time now, I’m still a huge fan of the power of the set-top box as a PVR, for simple access to streaming services, Free to Air and streamed IPTV channels – as well as for TV Show and Movie purchases and rental.

For existing users, the new boxes are a step ahead – for those new to Fetch TV it’s a compelling option to turn your big-screen TV into a whole new world of entertainment. The new Fetch TV “Mighty” is the latest large set-top box which looks just like the “Gen 2” but inside has a bunch of features that are much needed to bring it up to 2016 spec.

Bill Holmes, Global Head of Business Development at Netflix said “Netflix is investing heavily to offer a premium 4k viewing experience – nearly doubling its 4K catalog this year – and we are excited that Fetch TV’s new “Mighty” will be amongst the first STB’s deployed anywhere in the world to support Netflix in 4k.”

That’s pretty bloody impressive from a little set-top box from Australia.

Speaking of little, this is where Fetch TV is about to boom – they’ve also launched today the Fetch TV Mini. This little guy looks like the Gen 2 or Mighty went through the set of “Honey I shrunk the kids” but packs enormous punch.

All in all, this is a cracking development from Fetch TV who with the rise of Netflix and streaming as well as the upcoming EPL deal with Optus are on track to push toward 1,000,000 Fetch users – the “subscription TV” space is complex, competitive and it’s really heating up now.
