Fetch TV and Discovery, Inc. today announced a long-term extension of their channel partnership agreement, covering Discovery’s complete suite of eight channels: Discovery, Discovery Turbo, Investigation Discovery, TLC, Animal Planet, HGTV, Travel Channel and Food Network.
Subscribers to Fetch TV channel packs will be breathing a sigh of relief because although there have been some new channels added eg MSNBC, during the last few years Foxtel has negotiated exclusive rights to several channels which meant they couldn’t be on Fetch anymore eg: SyFy and CNN.
Fetch subscribers can view content from Discovery, live or on demand, on TV and on the Fetch Mobi Android/iOS App, with ‘Start Over’ available for the majority of linear channel programs.
The Discovery Inc. channels are available in the Fetch Ultimate pack with 48 channels for only $20 per month, and in the Fetch $6 per month Channel Packs.
Sam Hall, Fetch TV Chief Content and Commercial Officer said
“We are delighted to continue our long relationship with Discovery Inc, delivering Fetch subscribers eight channels with much loved content including Outback Opal Hunters, Aussie Gold Hunters, and Crikey, It’s the Irwin’s. Channels remain an important and compelling part of the Fetch content aggregation model, and with this latest deal coming on the back of recent long-term renewals with BBC, ViacomCBS and NBCU, Fetch continues to bring our audience an extensive range of high quality channels from the very best content providers around the globe.”
Discovery Senior Vice President and General Manager, Australia, New Zealand & Pacific Islands, Glen Kyne, said
“We’re incredibly pleased to renew our partnership with Fetch and continue to provide Australians with the shows they know and love, including the best of Discovery’s factual, reality, documentary and lifestyle content. We have a strong relationship with Fetch and this agreement ensures this will continue into the future.”
