Minimum requirements for Fetch TV

To connect a Fetch set top box and service you will need the following:

Connection requirements

  • An Optus Home Broadband service (Cable, DSL Direct, DSL or NBN) or an Optus Postpaid Mobile Phone service

  • A Cable, NBN or DSL modem with a spare Ethernet port

  • A widescreen television

  • An existing, roof-mounted, Free-to-Air TV antenna (needed for Free-to-Air channels). We also recommend using quad-shielded antenna cabling (available from most electronics retailers) to ensure you receive the best possible signal for Free-to-Air channels

  • If your TV is not located near your modem and you want to connect via Ethernet, you will also need Powerline Adapters. Alternatively, you can connect Fetch Mini and Mighty set top boxes via WiFi if you have a stable WiFi connection
