Fetch unveils its Mighty Gen 4 Personal Video Recorder


• CEO Fetch TV said: “The Mighty Gen 4 PVR will be a clear market leader”

Fetch TV has started the rollout of its latest Set-Top-Box (STB), the Mighty Gen 4 Personal Video Recorder (PVR).  

The Mighty Gen 4 PVR is powered by the latest in chipset and Wi-Fi technology and is an upgrade to its Mighty Gen 3 PVR.

Fetch also upgraded its puck offering with the introduction of the Mini 4K late last year, with prior versions of the Mighty and Mini introduced in 2016. 

Scott Lorson, CEO Fetch TV, said: “Fetch is committed to maintaining our position as the leading Australian aggregation platform, and to delivering on our brand promise of ‘All your entertainment, easy’.  We continue to add to our content offering, including the recent addition of Disney+.

“Fetch is proud to announce the introduction of the Mighty Gen 4 PVR. Innovation is in our DNA, and we continue to leverage technology advances to enhance the user experience and future proof the Fetch hardware offering. If the early reviews are anything to go by, the Mighty Gen 4 PVR will be a clear market leader,” he added.


Adam Turner, The Gadget Guy, said: “If you’re after a Personal Video Recorder, then the Fetch TV Mighty is by far the best option in Australia.”

Trevor Long, EFTM, commented: “The Fetch Gen 4 Mighty is the single best all round home entertainment box in the market.”

Stephen Fenech, Tech Guide, added: “The Fetch Mighty certainly lives up to its name. It’s one of the best PVRs you can buy – it also ticks all the boxes for your content demands….”

The new Mighty Gen 4 PVR retains the same form factor, user interface, functionality and content offering as the current Mighty.  Despite the upgraded technical specifications, the RRP will remain unchanged at $449.

It will be available from leading retailers including JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and The Good Guys, and will be rolling out with ISP partners later this year.

Both Gen 4 boxes are interoperable with earlier versions of the Mighty and Mini, offering advanced multi-room features including the ability to stream Free-to-Air channels to a box located in a room where an aerial is not available. Fetch boxes are also fully compatible with the ‘Mobi’ companion App.

This new offering comes after Telstra confirmed it has bought a 51% stake in Fetch TV for $50 million.

The deal, reported by the Sydney Morning Herald on Friday, will see the telecommunications giant use the content aggregation platform for its Telstra TV product, which has 800,000 active subscribers, and progressively migrate to te platform, which has around 670,000 active subscribers.
