Ticker News will be available to Fetch customers from March 1, 2023

Next-gen news streamer Ticker News is about to arrive on Fetch TV, bringing Australian audiences more live news and original programs focussed on breaking news, business and tech.

Ticker will be available as a live network as part of the Fetch aggregation platform’s push into Free Ad-Supported Streaming TV (FAST). Accessible from the TV Guide, Ticker News will be available to Fetch customers on their TV and on the Fetch Mobi App from March 1, 2023.

Ticker CEO Ahron Young said: “This is an incredible moment for the Ticker team and a great achievement. Since our launch in 2019, we’ve been focused on building a leading FAST news streaming network, and we are tremendously proud to be embraced by the team at Fetch.”

The addition comes as Fetch will soon become the new platform for Telstra TV.
