Fetch TV Hook Up With M2
Telecommunications company M2 is in talks with Fetch TV to offer its IPTV service to customers, Fairfax Media reports.
Fetch TV’s Internet TV service comes with a set-top-box, and M2 are already believed to be conducting trials with the device prior to launch.
Fetch TV were not available for comment at the time of writing.
The content player has already partnered with several big name telco’s including Optus, iiNet and Westnet to expand the IPTV service locally.
M2, owners of iPrimus and Dodo brands, has been enjoying a significant period of growth with revenues rising 66% in the year ending December 2013.
Dodo, in particular, has increased its retail presence to 20 stores and has ‘unlimited’ NBN offers which has gained plenty of attention. M2 added 39,000 new broadband services in the first half of Fy14.
But its not just M2 that Fetch TV are eyeing up as it continues its expansion.
It is also in discussions with Australian retailers to sell the set-top-box box in stores.
Fetch TV currently has 130,000 subscribers but is now tracking upwards towards a target of 300,000 subscribers. The broadband delivered service offers all the free-to-air channels, catch up TV, over 2500 movie titles, TV on-demand and specialist packages.
CEO Scott Lorson is confident that its new marketing push will “significantly” lift their subscription base during the next 12 months.
