Fetch TV and BBC Studios today announced the extension of their channel partnership agreements covering seven BBC channels.

The deals secure Fetch subscribers ongoing access to the broadest range of premium BBC content available on any Australian aggregation platform, and include BBC First, BBC World News, UKTV, BBC Earth and CBeebies, along with Virtual Playlist Channels BBC Brit and BBC Kids which are only available on Fetch.

Sam Hall, Chief Content and Commercial Officer of Fetch TV said:

“We are delighted to continue our decade long relationship with BBC Studios, which thrives on innovation and creativity to deliver the best of British content to our customers.”

Fiona Lang, General Manager, BBC Studios ANZ, said:

Our partnership with Fetch showcases the breadth and depth of the BBC’s content across world class drama, documentaries, entertainment, children’s programming and news.  We’re excited to renew our agreement with Fetch to bring their audiences this comprehensive offering via their unique mix of linear and virtual playlist channels.”

Fetch subscribers can view the BBC linear channels on their TV or on the Fetch Mobi app, with a “start over” option available for the majority of programmes which enables viewers to join the channel at any point and watch from the start.  Subscribers can also access a large amount of on-demand channel content from the Fetch Catch-Up menu. The Fetch Universal Voice Search makes it easy to find content from across the whole of Fetch, including channels and on-demand content, with one simple spoken search.

The BBC channels are all available in the 46 channel Fetch Ultimate Pack for only $20 per month, and also in the $6 per month Fetch Channel Packs.

Separate to the renewal of the BBC channels agreements, Fetch has also integrated the BritBox app from the BBC and ITV, providing subscribers with access to even more great on-demand BBC content via Fetch.
