From today, Fetch TV subscribers are also able to purchase, as well as rent, movies from its extensive library of over 4,000 titles from 15 leading studios. Many new release titles will be available for purchase on Fetch TV two or more weeks prior to their DVD release dates.

Lorson continued, “Australians love their movie collections, and we are now seeing a rapid shift in preference from physical to digital ownership, as consumers embrace the convenience, early windowing, attractive pricing and multi-device viewing options.”

“Fetch TV is enjoying record subscriber growth on the back of a series of bold content initiatives. In February, we introduced nine more leading channels including the highly acclaimed BBC First. The launch of Netflix in March has proven wildly successful, and we are expecting another very strong response to the popular TV shows and movies now available for purchase on Fetch TV.” said Lorson.
