What’s New in Version 2.3.223
• Bugs fixes and improvements
FetchTV Pty Ltd part of our Entertainment and have average installs from 100000 to 500000. Last Update Oct. 13, 2015. Google play rating is 68.5504. Current verison is Varies with device. Actual size 0 bytes.
You killed it You may have optimized it for later versions, but now my old android won't run it. Can I have the old version back please?
Useless. Updated to the latest version which includes "bug fixes". Still useless. Only works sporadically. Running on a Nexus 4 with vanilla Android so goodness knows what the app writers tested it on - if indeed they even bothered. Very sloppy programming done by amateurs at best. UPDATE. Latest update says it's now optimised for Kit Kat. Kit Kat was released well over a year ago. Is this seriously the best the Fetch TV programming team can do?
OK, needs a little work Bit slow to load data. TV Guide can be hard to read. Feature suggestion, ability to see free to air signal strength on app, so user can adjust roof aerial, etc, using phone.
It was working before the latest update. It used to work on my HTC M8 Android lollipop 5.0.1 but no longer supported. Very disappointed.
Problem since update. New version proclaims it's optomised for Kitkat and Lolypop. But now no longer seems to work on Ice Cream Sandwich. Pity because it was good app before new update
Useless Dowloaded app to both the Samsung Note 8 pad and Galaxy S5 and in both cases, app fails to connect to the STB. Exhausted all possibilities (twice) in online support, and after 3hrs, still not working. No phone support is available. Absolutely useless. 4 May update. Android app updated and connected to the STB. Data under "My Stuff" tab is not consistent. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it shows nothing under certain sub headings like "Scheduled", and somtimes it's way out of date and refreshing doesn't update it. VERY ANNOYING. IceTv and their STB far superior.
A bit better At least it works again and connects to latest fetch firmware. It now needs and easier to view guide for mobile, the remote to work in Netflix and catch up TV menu.
Doesn't Work With Netflix
Don't bother Won't play subscription recordings and doesn't work with Netflix. Takes forever to connect if it does.
App fetch tv The app is ok... fetch tv was better before the price increase and represented better value for money considering it is IPTV and not HD or the likes... such a shame... *** would be nice to see the app allow for steaming from device back to STB like airplay - ie. Allow for mp3/4 & avi on device to play via stb... ***
Why can't I watch HD or subscription recordings?
Works well. It took a while but finally works with lollipop.
It is ok I have been having trouble using the app as a remote and accessing my recorded stuff. Other than that its all good
Crashes Difficulty connecting and playback fails and crashes.
Working perfectly so far
Very handy Great for recording shows when out and about
Does not work on lollipop The app keeps giving an error saying playback unavailable . This only happens with devices running lollipop - the latest android operating system. I have contacted fetch multiple times but no reply or no update when a new version will be out. Please fix it. Thanks
Useless The TV guide times are so close together that I can not see the names of the shows, they are very hard to read. Very little control over the fetch TV box itself. No advantage to using this app versus using the remote.
Very problematic Still doesn't work properly on Lollipop, multiple errors and crashes. Only useful to some extent as a remote or TV guide - but even those functions have issues. Please fix this app!
Buggy Search doesn't work, can't watch anything on mobile or play on tv using mobile remote on stock android, keeps saying I have to be on the same network, which I am, it happily streams crap channels.
Does the job but could be better!! Recently upgraded OS to lollypop on nexus 5 and for some reason when trying to playback a subscription channel like I use to it now doesn't play and says playback not available. Next update please.
Fetch tv Terrible app, still only works randomly. It says not on the same network when I am in my house streaming straight from the iinet modem
Great product Would give give stars if i could watch all tv through the app.Great product. Everything else is great! Too many good features to list.
Needs to be fixed Since Lollipop update the app does not show any recorded programs at all on a Nexus 7 2013. Also the TV guide doesn't work.
Buggy Still doesn't work after last update. Still getting the "need to be on the same network" message. Down grade to one star.
No recorded files You fixed the connection issue but now the app says there are no recorded files?? I have over 500 items on the fetch box?
Just great Never had any problems. Awesome to be sitting in a restaurant, realising you're going to miss a show, and use wifi or 3G to start recording it at home, miles away! Love it.
Potential there, but could be improved Couldn't find anywhere for suggestions so I'll leave some here. The app needs to be able to show upcoming recordings. The TV guide needs a much smaller font to be useful as most shows are listed with the first few letters followed by ... . If the font size was smaller it could wrap to two or three lines and show a lot more info.
Is a GRATE app just need to be able to watch recordings and would be a 5 star app ?
If you have Fetch you really should get this app. Among other things you can watch in another room on a tablet or phone!
Unreliable It takes a while to load and can rarely connect with the set top box over the wifi.
Foxtel would be better You have to use your own internet for all the channels apart from the normal channels. The movies you get to choose from with the advanced package are old and there has been hardly any I want to watch. Once you do get a movie it lasts 2days once you start watching it. Plus my internet is slow as fuck.constantly ringing Dodo who provide the service.ripped me off.and constantly ringing me to try sell me more crap! ! ! Don't get it get FOXTEL! BEST decision you will ever make.trust me
App doesn't stream on lollipop App launches, but when trying to stream any video content, you cannot play it, simply crashes or receive an error. This app makes Stan seem amazing!!
Doesn't work with lollipop operative system.
Slow and cumbersome Not terrible, but way too slow, takes forever to load up. Interface is also dated. Functionality is not bad, but generally the app needs improvement.
Limited It OK, but is disappointing. In program lists, there is no refresh, only way to update programs is to back out and reload. Would be nice to have a shortcut to the remote, instead of having to wait for other items to load. Loading is very slow, despite having NBN/100. Yep, disappointing
Does the job but a few simple things could improve it An improved TV guide with more spacing between channels would be really appreciated.
Useless. Just installed the latest update with 'bug fixes' and 'improvements'. Unfortunately still utter crap. 2nd only to the AFL App in its crapulance. In fact should be called the Fetch TV crApp. Not sure how much Fetch pays its programmers, but however little it is, it's still clearly too much.
Horrible This app never plays my recorded programs. Tells me the app must be on the same network as the fetch box..well it is. Needs refining..could be great but seems a bit unreliable and clunky.
Works perfect once it's paired. But everyday it loses its pairing and you have to go through the whole setup process again and again
Keeps telling me I am not on my own network and cant view video from my own FetchTV. Have tried switching between a/g/n settings with same results. Fetch is hardwired on same internal network. Fix please.
Useless. Cannot even set a show to record. Each time I click on a show regardless of the program or channel the recording option flash momentarily and then disappear. . . . . . . . . . . . . . Really for such a great hardware product the app for Android is a failure at least on my device which oh is a Sony z3. And I to am getting a message saying I should be connect to the same network as my fetch tv to view the recording on my mobile device. Um, I am connected to the same network. Fetch tv to wireless router via Ethernet and my mobile device via wifi to the router.
DO NOT INSTALL Its a complete waste of time and space. Don't bother. Tried pairing up with different phones and none of them worked. Deserves 0 stars.
Excellent Does what it describes, can watch movies and shows outside of home. Loving it! For you nay sayers - Haters going to hate.
Frustrating, always says have to be on same network as app. It is same network.. What's with that
Waste of time Cant playback any pre recorded shows. Keep getting error "still in connecting process please try again later" I'm on the same network and can stream live TV so don't know what's going on.
Fetch tv Better than the remote
Hmm It is okay but it only loads two channels in the TV guide and they are channels I don't even have.
Finally working good
Useless None of the TV channels are playing.. Stuck at Buffering.
Problems I have samsung galaxy tab 2 10.1. I cant open the App, before works and now dont. I have been install and uninstall, and nothing. Someone can tell why it doesn't work. Thanks
Buggy Still buggy. All I see on the TV guide is the entertainment pack channels. No FTA stations listed. When setting record from the app, it always reports an error. When I check the box the recording is there. My recordings and series tags are always empty. Finally I can't use the app as a remote as I get the same old message about needing to be on the same network. Tried unpairing and pairing. Useless. Streaming works though.
Doesnt work When I choose a channel to watch it just sits on buffering...
Doesn't work I can't even get it to connect with my Note 4.
Doesnt work on anything Tv shows onlynrun on my S4
Awesome App So easy to use.I got the hang of it really quickly and its got some really good features...AWESOME APP.
The app is fucked The app says unfortunately fetch TV app has stopped please fix it or I report you to the accc
Doesn't Work With Netflix or Nexus 6 unable to watch tv channels, just sits on buffering. Nexus 5 was fine.
Used to work great.... I don't know what had been done but only seeing Now Showing and preview channel in EPG and not showing any of my recorded shows. A major reason for getting fetch was mobile functionality so I'm less than impressed.
Fetch me if you can Mixed feelings from day to day. But balanced for the family i spose. Some days still nothing to watch.
Fetch remote Found that the remote app would work only from the Fetch main screen. Once gone into an app - say Netflix - it wouldn't work anymore and i have to revert back to the dedicated remote. This is pretty disappointing.
Rarely works Rarely works for streams ng
Becoming more useless Fetchtv is horrible, and if possible more so by this app. . The online service seems to be just getting worse, the only thing that seems not to be a repeat is the news, nearly every program I've watched seems to be from the distant past, and now replayed time after time. Sit down and watch a program and the high chance is that I've seen it yesterday or the day before. I normally put the classical music on to help me sleep, and even that has been playing only one tune for the past 2 days!
It works again! Doesn't get stuck on the 'Downloading data' page any more. Thanks for fixing this, Fetch!
App wont work on rooted devices. I have media players to stream from my server to bedrooms and thought having the app would be great since my media players run Android. Now, according to support, if I want to play fetchtv in bedrooms I have to uninstall my set top box from home entertainment system and cart it into bedroom!! Change the app so everyone in my situation, or the others I've read here, can use the app they way we want to. Otherwise, I'll be sticking Optus, moving back to Telstra with a Foxtel package :)
Forced to give it one star to comment. Won't progress past downloading data. Apparently a problem for a while now after reading other reviews. UPDATE uninstall this and install the optus version. It works yet the native one doesn't.
Will we see a nexus player version? Works fine on my phone but no native nexus player version. I was trying to get fetch working in two rooms but am frustrated by the level of difficultly this is proving to be. Leaving me with sideload the app (requires a mouse to work properly) or maybe casting from a tablet.
Internode delivery terrible Good product when working. Useless forvextended periods with freezing screen. Internode cannot solve problem Oct 15
Useless Update 25/10/15. Thought they had fixed app. No such luck. Takes 2-3 min to download, and then data shown under Recorded, Scheduled or Series Tag is not shown or incorrect. Hit refresh, nothing changes on most occassions. Annoying also is it generally only displays today's Scheduled recordings and say not the next 5-7 days. VERY HIT AND MISS. INITIAL FEEDBACK.....Dowloaded app to both the Samsung Note 8 pad and Galaxy S5 and in both cases, app fails to connect to the STB. Exhausted all possibilities (twice) in online support, and after 3hrs, still not working. No phone support is available. Absolutely useless. 4 May update. Android app updated and connected to the STB. Data under "My Stuff" tab is not consistent. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it shows nothing under certain sub headings like "Scheduled", and somtimes it's way out of date and refreshing doesn't update it. VERY ANNOYING. IceTv and their STB far superior.
Won't run falsely claiming rooted phone Old version ran, new one won't, refusing to run because it no longer runs on rooted devices, but my phone isn't and has never been rooted! Even if it was I don't see how they have any right to refuse to run. At least only prevent features that would somehow matter if rooted. And fix the bugs that say my phone is rooted when it's not. I'm on holidays and suddenly find the app doesn't work and I can't remotely tell FetchTV to record anything.
Revised review. Seems to be working much better now. TV guide is now visible and I can set recordings from the app without any issues.
Does not connect Will not connect to the set top box. Otherwise it is quite good. Samsung tab S
Absolutely useless Will not pair with either a Samsung or Sony phone. There seems to be no response from the programmers to all the negative reviews. Doesn't look like they care.
I already have a dedicated remote This app should allow me to play recordings on mobile device at a minimum.
Enable rooted devices Restrict remote viewing I don't care I want to be able to use the recording controls but it doesn't even run on a rooted device
From bad to worse The previous version was half reasonable, but the new version refuses to start. It complains that it "cannot run on a rooted device due to copyright restrictions". This is a completely unacceptable restriction, especially since Google movies, ABC iview, etc, all run fine (and my tablet is NOT rooted).
Nexus 7 (2013) android 6.01 Why can't I watch HD or subscription recordings? Live TV does not work.
Blocked rooted devices It was an ok app but now it won't work at all. Dick move.
Finally fixed! Galaxy Note After what seems forever, randomly opened this app that hadnt been able get past the downloading screen for months ... AND IT WORKED!! Hopefully it will stay working. .. a good app provided it stays functional
Works sometimes then doesn't work for no reason so why even have an app
It was a great app but will not run on rooted devices. Reinstate the app please so that it will run on rooted devices.
Deleting my connection Now it is working?? It works well when on home wi-fi connection but as soon as I leave my connection & use another the app disconnects my phone & can't use it to talk access anything only TV guide yet when got to check connection in settings box status is phone connected ?????what's going on????...?
Non rooted device fails Getting message "Rooted Device" but my tablet is brand new & not rooted. Tried "Check Root" applications they all say not rooted device.
Would be better if the remote control and scheduling would work on rooted device, don't care about playback.
Getting there Only displayed channels from 100 up until I stumbled upon "my channels" setting. This should be a menu choice that is obvious.
Connection issues Get disconnected all the time and also need to reconnect with each restart
The new app does not work on my phablet as it now thinks it is rooted, which it is not. Worked fine before the upgrade, which Fetch told me included a detection item for rooted devices, would not tell me why. They are investigating my problem - I have sent them screen shots of the failure message and that the unit is not rooted so can only hope they fix it for installations like mine - here's hoping
Initialising App just hangs when trying to load app. Very frustrating. Never used to have so many issues with it
Pretty good when it works but keeps saying stopped working
All good again. :-) Much better than the last version.
Won't load live TV or play any recorded movies. Disappointing!
Fetch tv app No free to air channels on the app for remote recording very stupid
The idea is great Just a shame you have to reconnect your phone everytime you want to use it ?
Happygolucky Very happy that i can get to use it. Well done
1 rating now, was 5 Since I had no fetch tv for a week, and have since had all fixed, the app will not stay connected anymore. have to connect everytime open the app ?? Fix it and will be a 5 again. Hope nothing to do with tpg taking over ?? 2 months later and still not working have to pair device every time open app and have to try about 20 times before seems to magically work ???? WTF not working on android at all now, ok on apple please fix. Advise all not capable of getting it to work on android and Get it off play store if you can not fix it.
Useless Fetch Doesn't work. Only acts as a remote control and can only be viewed on the TV. No option to view on mobile or tablet. One star for effort.
Unable to use Was great until it was disabled for root users without warning. Disappointed
A waste of money. I pay $10/mo for old forgotten rubbish movies. A trash not a treasure.
Used to work, now it won't! In the last week this app will not connect Fetch to my Nexus 5. Why isn't this being fixed? So do you really want your customers telling your friends that Fetch TV doesn't do what it says in the box? Fix this rubbish or your advertising something that is false. I have the Android version recommend so why? #Update# it is now working so fingers crossed!
Useless Did work a long time ago but has not worked for months and now complains that my devices are rooted.
Sometimes its ok Last update fixed its complete brokenness. Now its a bit slow but seems to work ok.
doesn't work anymore It won't let me watch most of my recorded items and the ones it let's me watch stop after a few minutes with a msg that the app isn't working absolutely crap
Great idea poor execution Like the idea but it frequently won't load or do any of the things it is supposed to. Now it refuses to run because it says my device is rooted when it's not . Since I purchased the tablet specifically to watch TV with, this is pretty annoying.
Fetch tv I've got used to this app I like it a lot better than the proper remote control it's a lot easier the Fetch remote is badly designed
Bullshit !!!! CAN NOT USE ON ROOTED DEVICE !!! FIX IT OR I WILL JUST RID FETCH TV OFF!! AND WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. WHAT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO TELL ME WHAT I CAN USE ON MY DEVICE !? I PAY FOR THE SERVICE I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO WITH IT WHAT I WANT !!!!! GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER !!!!
Keeps losing pairing Keep having to pair the app to my fetch box. What is going on ??? Has only been doing it for a few weeks. Works for a few days and then have to pair with box again.
Useless Once you enter an app e.g. Youtube the remote no longer work same goes for any other app you enter
Was good. I haven't been able to get the app to work for months. Works again but would be better if could delete recorded programs on app.
TERRIBLE !!! This app works fine until a while...... I go onto one section and it loads and loads and loads and it just keeps loading and then I have to uninstall and reinstall the app. Frustrated with it want to throw my phone iPad tablet at a f*ing wall please fix this because I want to give it a 5 but not if its bugging a lot.
Fetch tv is great this app is not continuously freezes takes multiple attempts to access then locks you out most movies and rcorded programs wont play
Used to be really good I don't know what you have done but it takes forever to download the data base each time and it keeps on disconnecting from my fetch box please fix this
Great idea... Poorly implemented Frequent crashes. Frequently can't play recorded TV on several devices. Unreliable. Would love it to work well because I love the fetch TV box itself.
Just doesn't work The my stuff section wont load, the tv guide wont load and this is after waiting a couple of minutes for the app to load in the first place, lucky I have ios devices with the app, they work OK, its still not very quick, but everthing works
It's useless. Why can't I watch HD or subscription recordings? Live TV does not work. Nothing works anymore.
Still..Horrible Why is this app so slow to load anything..the guide is painful to use..constant spinning wheel. Does load..then loads again. What data does it download at startup?? Not the TV guide. My internet is fast this app is slow. Unusable
Displays rooted Not rooted phone displays rooted. Phone used Australia , Sphere B5 running Android 4.2.2 not possible to use.
Love the fetch TV box as a FTA DVR but the app is horrible. Tremendously slow to do anything inside the app. Would love to see some updates to the UI and new features.
Says won't work with rooted appliance.My Onix is unrooted
Just doesn't work Looks like its useless giving feedback, left feedback many months ago and nothing has been updated, this app is completely useless and seems like Fetch has left the building or just dont care.The my stuff section wont load, the tv guide wont load and this is after waiting a couple of minutes for the app to load in the first place, lucky I have ios devices with the app, they work OK, its still not very quick, but everthing works
Revised review (again: from 4 star to 1). Eventually got the app working but then the fetch box died. Tried to get the app working with the new box but no luck. The box says it connects but when it tries to sync, there's an error saying that it can't connect. Tried contacting support but the answer was "device not supported". I haven't changed my device. Only thing that changed was the fetch box. Disappointing response from fetch.
Displays rooted Not rooted phone displays rooted. Phone used Australia , Sphere B5 running Android 4.2.2 not possible to use. Same problem with SM-T805Y!
Too slow Nice interface but far too slow to be useful. Watching recorded tv doesnt work. Lacks obvious features like being able to delete recordings.
Deleting my connection Now it is working?? It works well when on home wi-fi connection but as soon as I leave my connection & use another the app disconnects my phone & can't use it to make access to Box only TV guide yet when got to check connection in settings box status is phone connected ?????what's going on????...?
Useful Works well as advertised, even when the dog is sitting in front of the set top box!
Very good app Since I got Chinese tv for my wife and we both got the app on our tablets wow this is great no problems you can watch tv on the go thats why I gave this app 5 stars
Only installed so I could use keyboard function - but doesn't work - only the numbers rgister and the enter key comes in as a one. The lack of remote keyboard funtionalty is a big minus for FetchTV box (using new Mini)
Needs improvements Opens on tab2 but then on 2nd open crashes on data download, please fix!! ********** ****Also please try to change movie rentals to give options for one day rental, will buy lots more movies
It takes a little while to load, but at an acceptable time frame. Dosen't allow for skipping adds and when you attempt same on time line the program freezes. This happens at every instance if you progress to far forward, then try to go back.
Just falls short of great ? The app controls my new Mighty FetchTV almost 100%. The only hitch is when using the search function the keyboard on my Galaxy Tab S2 tablet or my Nexus 5 phone is not recognised. Otherwise I'd give it 5 stars.
1 rating now, was 5 Since I had no fetch tv for a week, and have since had all fixed, the app will not stay connected anymore. have to connect everytime open the app ?? Fix it and will be a 5 again. Hope nothing to do with tpg taking over ?? 2 months later and still not working have to pair device every time open app and have to try about 20 times before seems to magically work ???? WTF not working on android at all now, ok on apple please fix. Advise all not capable of getting it to work on android and Get it off play
Works a treat Loaded it on my Samsung S6 and it works just as expected..... No, actually, BETTER than expected. Glad I chose to go with it despite the poor reviews.
Advertising vs real product Every day I endure your radio ads about how good the app is if you want to watch something on your phone that you'd recorded earlier, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Doesn't work, doesn't offer me the ability to play the show on my device like your images display it should. Eventually I get an error and then it stops working all together. How about a little more money into the app and less into the ad?
Doesent work Downloaded the app on my galaxy s6 and when i opend it. It gives error failed to successfuly all vod data. Bullshit
Fetch TV It's great when it works. Which is about one in every four attempts, on the several devices (Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets) that I've tried it on.
Should be the icing on the fetch tv cake Our family tv viewing heavily uses fetch TV's features... The app should make this seamless and mobile. Constantly 'disconnects', time out errors etc... I keep coming back, hoping it improves
Slow Slow to download tv guide. Guide format unfriendly. Menus should be configurable or tv guide should be first page
Vicki Works some of the time. Freezes up & have to exit & reload again. When it works it's great but still some IT issues to work on.
Fletch tv Cant use the app unless your connected to the fletch tv box. Waste of time.
Too unreliable. Won't stay paired to my fetch box. Like others have said, great functionality if only it worked reliably.
