New Fetch TV Mini & Mighty Set Top Boxes A Serious Threat To Foxtel


Fetch TV is one of those Companies that has slowly crept up on Foxtel, now they have their hands around the neck of the big pay TV provider who is reeling from poor set top box decision making and a fall in real growth.

For the last two weeks Channel News and SmartHouse has been playing with two new set top boxes from Fetch TV. Both these boxes are available from JB Hi Fi and Harvey Norman as of today. 

The new Fetch TV Mini and Mighty set top boxes have the same OS and both are extremely fast and unlike the latest Foxtel iQ3 don’t stall, lag or freeze when you are trying to switch between channels, recording content or when switching to video on demand services.

Many years ago I was responsible for AVIS PR this was a Company that coined the phrase “We Try Harder” at the time they were #2 to Hertz. Today they are #1 because they delivered the products and the service that consumers came to trust, now Fetch TV is the small kid on the block who is seriously kicking Foxtel where it really hurts.

While these are the best set top boxes we have ever tested, the good news is that they both will shortly get a major software update with the delivery of a new intuitive Interface.
