From early 2013 and over the next 18 months the Federal Government will begin upgrading digital TV transmission towers throughout Australia. As part of this upgrade some free-to-air digital channels will need to change their broadcast frequencies.
This means that your Yes TV by Fetch will need to be re-tuned so that you can continue to watch all of the available free-to-air digital channels in your local area. Simple instructions to re-tune your Yes TV by Fetch set top box are provided below.
To find out more about the digital TV changes including; the roll-out schedule across Australia, when to re-tune and to set yourself a reminder, please go to the Australian Government's Retune / Digital Ready website.
How do I tune / scan for free-to-air channels?
Press the Menu button on your Yes TV by Fetch remote to go to the Main Menu.
From the Main Menu use the navigation buttons to go to and select Manage > Settings
In the Settings screen on your TV, scroll to and select the Channels option using the navigation buttons
In the Channels settings screen, select the Blue function key to begin a new free-to-air channel scan / tune
Your free-to-air channel scan may take a few minutes to complete, after which all available free-to-air channels will populate in your Electronic Program Guide. (EPG)
How do I add or remove Channel / TV packs?
You can add or remove Channel & TV packs via your Yes TV by Fetch set top box:
Press the Menu button on your remote control to go to the Main Menu
Using the Menu navigation buttons (arrows) and the Paw button on your remote control, select Manage
Select Subscriptions: Two options will display offering either Channel or TV Packs
Using the Menu navigation buttons and the Paw button, find and select your TV or Channel Pack (Packs you've already subscribed to are indicated by a tick)
Click the Green function key on your remote control to subscribe / unsubscribe after reviewing the terms and conditions
Use the Paw button to confirm subscription / un-subscription of the pack
Enter your Parental Control PIN
It may take up 3 min for a TV Pack or Channel Pack to be fully subscribed / unsubscribed, please allow this time for your set top box to complete the transaction
I can't see my Channel/TV Packs?
If a newly subscribed TV Pack doesn't show after following these steps, restart your Yes TV by Fetch set top box to refresh your content settings. You can restart by holding down the standby / power button on your set top box for 3 seconds.
Channel Packs (Entertainment Pack, World Channels, Bein Sports, etc.)
Unlike other subscription packs 'streaming channels' are only visible within the electronic programme guide (EPG). Press the ‘EPG’ button on your remote control and scroll to your new channels. If you can't see them in you EPG try the following 2 quick fixes:
Restart your set top box
Hold down the standby / power button on your set top box for 3 seconds.
Check if your channels are hidden in 'Settings'
Go to Main Menu > Manage > Settings > Channels. Within the channels settings screen, check for a tick in the 'Hide' column next to each channel. Untick the channels you want to see in the EPG again, save and return to the EPG to view.
