FetchTV, that VOD DVR type thingy that iiNet has said they'll be selling soon, has just announced its content lineup for launch. Anything worth watching in there?
In addition to the standard free to air channels (standard and high def) watchable on the three integrated tuners, there's also 14 linear subscription channels included in the $30 starter plan. Those channels are: CNBC Australia, BBC World News, National Geographic, Nat Geo Adventure, Baby TV, Discovery Turbo, Discovery Home & Health, Discovery Travel & Living, Discovery Science, Animal Planet, E! Entertainment Television, MTV Music Television, MTV Classic and MTV Hits.
There will be six VOD channels, with content pushed onto the Fetch TV hard drive regularly. Two of those channels will be dedicated for children's programming, two channels for documentary style content, a sci-fi channel and a TV series channel.
And finally there will be a VOD movie channel, with 30 movies available each month to watch on demand. There will also be a pay-per-view element to the service which hasn't been fully announced yet.
It sure sounds like a lot of content for $30 a month. But the question is, will it be enough? And of a high enough quality? We'll have to wait and see...
