Fetch TV has hit the 100,000 subscriber milestone and added “watch anywhere” capabilities to its Fetch TV mobile app. Subscriber growth has been strong throughout the year with Fetch TV now the clear number two pay-TV provider in Australia. The rate of subscriber growth is expected to accelerate in 2014 with the commencement of mainstream marketing activities.
Scott Lorson, CEO of FetchTV said: “After an extended period of investment in research and development, Fetch TV and our partners are now excited to offer the compelling TV experience that nearly three quarters of Australian households have been holding out for. We enter the new year in a strong position, with clear growth momentum, committed partners, an enthusiastic and engaged subscriber base, and one hell of a product.”
The features of the upgraded Fetch TV App, available for iOS and Android, include the ability to view a wide selection of the subscription Entertainment channels plus movies from the Movie Box service when at home or whilst out and about, over both WiFi and 3G/4G. The app also allows users to set recordings from anywhere, and doubles as an in-home remote control.
