Fetch TV’s new Might Gen 4 box is long awaited since it’s predecessor Gen 3 box was released six years ago.
The new Mighty Gen 4 retains the same price at $449, form factor, user interface, functionality and content offering as the current Mighty.
The big differences are all inside and work to improve Wi-Fi connectivity, image quality and speed including:
- Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0
- Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos
- More RAM and onboard storage for OS/Apps
- DVB T2 support for Free to Air TV – this supports 4K / UHD broadcasts if Australian TV networks ever broadcast at that quality level (unlikely soon)
- HDMI V2.1 with HDCP 2.3
- AV1 codec support
Unfortunately HDMI-CEC is not supported.
Scott Lorson, CEO Fetch TV, said:
Fetch is proud to announce the introduction of the Mighty Gen 4 PVR. Innovation is in our DNA, and we continue to leverage technology advances to enhance the user experience and future proof the Fetch hardware offering.
“Fetch is committed to maintaining our position as the leading Australian aggregation platform, and to delivering on our brand promise of ‘All your entertainment, easy’. We continue to add to our content offering, including the recent addition of Disney+”.
The new Gen 4 Fetch Mighty and Mini 4K boxes are interoperable with earlier versions of the Fetch Mighty and Mini, offering advanced multi-room features including the ability to stream Free-to-Air channels to a Fetch box located in a room where an aerial is not available. Fetch boxes are also fully compatible with the Fetch ‘Mobi’ companion app.
The Fetch Mighty Gen 4 PVR is now available from leading retailers including JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and The Good Guys, and will be rolling out with ISP partners later this year.
