Fetch TV strikes deal with last remaining IPTV hunter

2 October 2014

Fetch TV has signed on its third Australian ISP partner in M2/Dodo, giving it access to 40% of the market through its new partner as well as via existing deals with iiNet and Optus.

Melbourne-based M2 is the second-fastest growing ISP in the country having added more subscribers than any other ISP other than Telstra. The deal with Fetch will see it present a basic IPTV offering as part of its $39.90 Unlimited broadband package including 36 channels, access to a film library of 3000 titles and 30 pre-selected films each month.

"Whilst a number of companies have an IPTV offering... we have launched what we believe to be some of the most disruptive plans on the market," Boris Rozenvasser, M2's consumer director, told media.

The deal between Fetch and M2 completes the pairing of ISPs with chosen IPTV providers: Telstra and TPG have aligned with Foxtel, while the remaining three have selected Fetch.

Of nine million occupied homes in Australia, it believed that more than 30% of them use a set-top box. Some 250,000 are believed to be accessing overseas TV subscription platforms via VPNs.
