Scott Lorson, CEO of Fetch TV said: “As we face challenging circumstances at home, the Free to Air networks are doing a wonderful job of keeping Australian’s informed. However, given the global nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is great interest in reporting from around the world, and dedicated coverage of the financial markets. With the support of our partners, we will be providing Fetch subscribers with 3 months’ free access to our 11 leading English language international news and financial channels.”

“Fetch subscribers will all have access to 24/7 reporting from leading international news channels – BBC World News, CNN and Al Jazeera, and regional and local coverage from MSNBC (U.S.), euronews, France 24, NDTV 24×7 (India), Channel News Asia, CGTN (China) plus CNBC and Bloomberg covering business news and the global financial markets”

The channels will be available from 9am Monday and will roll out to all customers over 24 hours. Alternatively, customers can restart their Fetch box on Monday morning to gain immediate access.
