FETCH TV set to expand content library with new apps from ACORN, VEVO, IWONDER and VIMEO

Advertisement

Fetch subscribers are set to gain access to even more streaming content, thanks to an Australian-first partnership with Metrological.

From next month, Fetch subscribers will have access to a first wave of apps available in Metrological’s App Library, including Acorn TV, iwonder, Vevo, Vimeo, Kidoodle, The Weather Network, and a rebuilt hayu app.

Additional premium, niche, and localised apps will be added in the coming months. 

Metrological offers a global cloud-based Application Platform that allows Fetch TV to quickly and seamlessly integrate apps into the Fetch service.

Metrological has partnered with leading global companies including Comcast, Sky, Liberty Global, Vodafone, and others. Fetch TV has secured rights for Australia and New Zealand. 

The Metrological Application Platform will complement Fetch TV’s advanced native app integration capabilities, and allow Fetch to service the long tail of quality content available via OTT apps.

Fetch native app integrations to date include Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime Video, Paramount Plus, Britbox, Optus Sport, YouTube, YouTube Kids, and the 6 Free-to-Air BVOD Apps – 7Plus, 9Now, 10 Play, ABC iView, ABC Kids, and SBS on Demand.

Fetch also offers over 50 channels from the world’s leading providers, and a TV and Movie Store with circa 10,000 titles.

Scott Lorson, CEO of Fetch TV, said

“The launch of the Metrological Application Platform will open up a new world of content to Fetch subscribers and provide an easy way to access the things they love to watch, all in one place.  This latest innovation is another demonstration of the commitment Fetch has to providing a world class aggregation platform, offering value not previously seen in the Australian market.” 

Jeroen Ghijsen, CEO of Metrological, said:

“We are proud to continue our work with Fetch to provide subscribers with a seamless and unified viewing experience, and even more of the world-class content they crave. Now more than ever, consumers want access to long tail OTT apps, as well as niche and localized content behind one remote, and with the most compelling user experiences in real-time.”

Content providers can leverage the open LightningTM Software Development Kit (SDK) for quick app development, with a single app build facilitating distribution to a global footprint of operators. Carrier billing functionality is available in selected apps, enabling users to sign up and pay via their Fetch account. 

Adding to the user experience on Fetch is the availability of Universal Voice Search, making it easy for users to find content from across the whole of Fetch, including all the channels, apps and YouTube, with one simple spoken request. 

Universal Search for the latest apps from the Metrological app library will be added in the next Fetch production release scheduled for later this year.

The new apps will be available on Fetch Mini, Mini 4K and Mighty boxes.
