Fetch TV today announced that it has further extended its agreement with The Walt Disney Company in Australia, so the Disney+ app can be available on Fetch Mighty and Mini 4K streaming entertainment boxes. Further development work is underway to add Disney+ to the older Fetch Mini boxes.
The app will be progressively rolled out to existing Fetch boxes during the next few weeks, I just checked and my Fetch Mighty box has it already.
Fetch is offering its subscribers one month of Disney+ at no cost when they sign up via the Fetch service before June 30th. The offer is available to all new, existing, and returning subscribers to Disney+ through Fetch.
For those of you who are unware Disney has purchased a lot of TV and movie content during the last few years which means Disney+ is the streaming home for entertainment from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and general entertainment brand Star, which offers the latest from 20th Century Studios, Disney Television Studios, FX, Searchlight Pictures, and more.
Disney+ content includes the Academy Award winning Encanto as well as popular titles like Turning Red, Only Murders in the Building, Star Wars The Mandalorian and Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight, as well as brand-new soon-to-launch titles Under the Banner of Heaven and the highly anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Fetch customers can now access over 32,000 hours of movies and TV shows On Demand, along with free and subscription streaming apps, including YouTube, Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime Video, Paramount Plus, hayu, Britbox, ABC iview, ABC Kids, SBS on Demand, 7Plus, 9Now and 10Play.
