Fetch TV Full was available from 23 November 2011 and was grandfathered on 24 July 2013. At this time, Fetch TV Full remained available to customers already on the plan, but no further sign ups were available.
On 1 February 2015 a new Entertainment Plus pack was introduced. Unfortunately this change meant that grandfathered Fetch TV Full plans could no longer be supported.

Fetch TV Full Subscription Channels
Fetch TV Full's Standard Package featured a selection of world-class news, documentary, and sports channels, as well as speciality news and weather.
Channels shown are those available on 24 July 2013, when Fetch TV Full was grandfathered. The Fetch TV Full package did not include TVH!TS, Disney, Disney Junior, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., ESPN, or ESPN2.
On 1 February 2015, a new Entertainment Plus pack was introduced, adding some new channels and removing some old ones. The changes include:
- Adding 7 new channels
(BBC First, BBC UKTV, BBC Knowledge, The Food Network, HGTV, Nat Geo Wild, and Universal Channel).
- Removing 6 old channels
(Discovery Turbo, Discovery Science, Discovery Home & Health, Fox Sports News, TLC, and Animal Planet).
- Removing TV Shows on Demand content
(Gekko, ABC for Kids, iConcerts, Moshcam, Factuality, and Justice).
These changes meant that Fetch TV subscriptions on the Fetch TV Full plan could no longer be supported. As a result, Fetch TV Full subscriptions were discontinued on 1 February 2015.
From 1 February 2015, existing Fetch TV Full customers were offered a 1 month trial of the new Entertainment Plus pack at the previous Fetch TV Full plan fee of $19.95 per month.
At the end of the 1 month trial, former Fetch TV Full customers will be moved to the standard Fetch TV subscription at $9.95 per month unless they elect to upgrade to the Entertainment Plus pack at $29.95 per month.
That's easy. Entertainment Plus can be subscribed to via your Fetch TV remote, online via My Internode, or by calling our Fetch TV team on 1300 866 737.
Entertainment Plus is $29.95 per month - only $10 extra per month.
In short, a lot: TVH!TS, Disney, Disney Junior, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., ESPN, ESPN2, BBC First, UKTV, BBC Knowledge, NAT GEO Wild, Universal Channel, HGTV, and The Food Network.
Unfortunately any recordings made on the deleted channels were lost on 1 February.
Any recordings made on former Fetch TV Full channels will also be deleted if Entertainment Plus is not subscribed to before the end of the trial.
Yes, you can watch these channels on your iOS or Android device while you are out and about, or at home.
