Fetch TV Expands Content With Amazon Prime Deal
Amazon Prime Video is now available on the Mighty Fetch TV and will soon be available on the Mini version.
Fetch TV CEO Scott Lorson, recently cut a deal to give viewers access to the subscription service through its set-top box from Tuesday, currently owners of a Fetch TV service have access to both YouTube Stan and Netflix across both boxes.
I am a fan of Amazon Prime and if you want excellent drama you can kick off watching the Tom Clancy Jack Ryan series followed by Treadstone or the documentary The Test: A New Era for Australia’s Team, or the Marvellous Mrs Maisel.
Chief executive Scott Lorson said the company expects high uptake during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At SmartHouse we have found the Fetch TV box an excellent alternative to Foxtel as it can be streamed to a tablet or smartphone. We also found that the Amazon Prime content was cheap with users only having to pay $6.99 a month Vs $17 for Stan.
“Fetch has enjoyed tremendous success by making good on the simple proposition of ‘All your entertainment in one easy place’ Mr Lorson said. “Australian households are, more than ever, looking for quality home entertainment options as they bunker down and practice social distancing.”
The combination of Netflix, Stan Amazon Prime and YouTube coupled with one of the best menu systems out there makes Fetch TV an excellent investment, the Fetch TV Mighty is currently selling at JB Hi Fi and The Good Guys for $395.
Amazon Prime is one of a number of online streaming platforms currently available in Australia.
