Looks good to me.

 

NatGeo, BC Knowledge, news. pretty much what we watch now....but cheaper.

 

Don't care if you have to by the box.

 

 

 

Sports and not have the rest first, ditto movies.

 

 

 

And if you care, Netflix via them....I like that, hate the current method....although not bothered about downloading fiction anyway.

This is a cool box but wonder if they've missed their opportunity....

 

 

I and other people here asked Fetch about their plans for NZ when it was announced that TiVo was shutting shop here.  They said not at this time.  I feel that they have missed the TiVo boat now but may  catch some of the Sky cord cutters. 

 

 

Most Tivo owners would have either bought something mediocre like a Panasonic or DishTV, or given up on recording Freeview altogether. Plenty of unsatisfied demand there, but maybe also some unwillingness to part with more moolah again so soon.

 

People here may think that a huge number of Tivos have been chipped, but the reality is most of them have either gone to the tip or are sitting in a dusty corner contributing to someone's hoarding disorder. Or their owners could be trying to keep up with the power consumption of their bitcoin-mining neighbours





A time-poor geek is hardly a geek at all

Pretty much agree. Seems bizarre if you have to buy a box. Why not an app? Thats a barrier for sure. Will Fetch, if it comes to NZ have all NZ FTA as well?

FTA is via DVB-T tuner and antenna, i.e., it receives terrestrial Freeview transmissions as TiVo did.

Thanks. The opening post states that the Oz stuff will be apps, understood. So the money making side is selling boxes. I assume the Oz channel apps wont work here due to Geo restrictions? In which case, why not allow them to be purchased here? Say, 10 apps for $5 per month. That's probably more revenue than the one off margin from one box
