Connection requirements

To connect a Fetch set top box, you need the following:

  • A home Broadband service
  • A Cable, NBN or DSL modem / router 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 may also need Powerline Adapters. Alternatively, you can connect Fetch Mini and Mighty set top boxes via WiFi if you have a stable WiFi connection
