Fetch launches 7Plus, Commonwealth Games and Olympics applications

Seven will add 7Plus, OlympicsOn7 and Commonwealth Games applications to its Fetch TV offering.

The new applications will be available from March, adding to Seven’s existing presence on the subscription television service.

Seven will add three new apps to the service from March

7Plus replaces Plus7, and will see TV shows from Seven, 7Mate, 7Two, 7Flix and available on Fetch both on demand and live.

OlympicsOn7 will offer access to more than 700 hours of live Winter Olympics content, with more than 500 hours of those hours exclusively available online.

The Commonwealth Games Fetch application will run from March, and will off more than 1000 hours of exclusive online content.

Seven West Media’s chief digital officer, Clive Dickens, said of the additions: “Seven is the leading Network in Australia, and our investment in these new Fetch TV Apps demonstrates our commitment to expanding our audience by providing access to their favourite content when they want, where they want, and on the device they want, especially on their TVs.  We are delighted to be working with Fetch to bring this exciting content to its subscriber base.”

Fetch CEO, Scott Lorson, said the company was always looking for ways to integrate content.

“Fetch and our ISP partners have established tremendous subscriber momentum by solving a simple problem – offering Australian audiences all of their favourite entertainment in one place,” Lorson said.

“We also recognise the frustration that some Australian households have as the result of poor or intermittent free-to-air reception, as well as the inability to view free-to-air content in rooms lacking an FTA aerial outlet.

“The new Seven apps offer a fantastic solution to these issues, as well as access to additional programming not seen on the main Seven channels.  We expect the new Seven Apps to prove extremely popular with our growing base of subscribers.”

Earlier this month, Fetch announced it had integrated Google Home voice control as well as the Discovery Channel and TLC to its channel packs.

Today’s announcement follows others last month detailing the Fetch integration of Google Home voice control, and the addition of Discovery Channel and TLC to the Fetch channel packs. Fetch continues to work with content providers, both locally and internationally, building out the Fetch platform to deliver the best free and paid content all together on one interface, with one remote.
