Changing channels on your TV, recording to your Fetch TV set-top box, playing on demand programs on the TV, and streaming selected recorded content requires the Fetch TV app to be connected to the same home network as your Fetch TV set-top box.
For the best experience we recommend using Wi-Fi network connection.
Notes for connecting the Fetch TV app with your Fetch TV set-top box (pairing):
> Please be at home, with your TV on and your Fetch TV set-top box turned on
> From the Home screen menu go to Manage > Settings > Mobile & Tablet
> Follow the on screen messages to setup your initial connection
You should only need to connect to your Fetch TV set-top box once, however if for some reason you lose your connection, just run the setup process again.

What's New in Version 2.3
-Playback fix for iOS9
The intent is good but the app probably tries to do too much whereas it would be better to do a small number of things really well. For example, all I need it for is to remotely set my fetch box at home to record a program. When it works it's fine but more often than not it doesn't work - either not accepting the save command or failing to activate the series tag. When I was a Foxtel customer, their equivalent app rarely had an issue like this.
Still not there
Fetch tv box is not as good as I expected. It still misses the end of some programs. The main reason I bought this was to avoid that problem. With no catch up nine you can't then load the end of the program which didn't record. I though it would also automatically skip ads like a Sony recorder I had nearly 10 years ago.
A forgotten project
There have been no new features added to this for over a year and even before then, they were thin on the ground. So this is as far as it goes folks unless we can wake the developers up to start working on it again.
Main features missing:
Watching hi def recordings...I can do this using the app Infuse from the TV box, so it's possible.
Managing recordings on the app - I'm a grown up and can handle it.
Can't watch live TV....times are changing...I never sit in front of a TV these days.
Can't watch downloaded content...it's why I don't subscribe.
I'm guessing their efforts are being put into a new product, so I'm not holding my breath on any more updates for my Fetch box...shame, product is good....the app is below par.
