Yes TV by Fetch: Channel Packs vs TV Packs

Learn more about recording and watching Channel (Streaming) Packs and TV On-Demand Packs that are available on your Optus TV with Fetch.


What's the difference between TV Packs and Channel Packs?

Content within TV Packs is 'On Demand'. This means you can download the content to your Optus TV with Fetch set top box and then watch it at a time of your choosing.

Content within Channel Packs streams directly to your Optus TV with Fetch set-top box according to a schedule, much like Free to Air TV channel programming. As this content is scheduled you have the ability to view what's on within your Optus TV with Fetch's Electronic Program Guide (EPG)

How to show or hide Channel Pack (streaming channels) in your EPG

You can elect to show or hide streaming channels from the EPG (electronic program guide), by following these steps.

  1. Press the 'Menu' button on your Optus TV with Fetch remote to go to the Main Menu.

Can I record content in Channel Packs (streaming channels)?

  • Record 1 streaming channel while watching another streaming channel
  • Record up to 2 Free-To-Air channels while watching another streaming or Free To-Air channel
