IPTV service Fetch TV has been named as the first Australian pay-TV provider to integrate the Netflix subscription service into its offering.
The Fetch service boasts more than 170,000 customers and is delivered over a broadband connection to the TV through a special set-top.
The Netflix streaming TV service will be available via a new app on the Fetch TV 2nd Generation box.
“Netflix is the clear world leader in online entertainment, with a powerful brand, compelling content, and an unparalleled reputation for innovation and disruption,” comments Fetch TV CEO Scott Lorson. “Netflix perfectly complements the Fetch TV service. We are now able to offer Australian consumers a world-class integrated entertainment offering at unprecedented value.”
The new deal also includes the New Zealand market to accommodate planned expansion by Fetch.
