Welcome to the July edition of What’s What. It’s an exciting month with the launch of our two new products. Read on for more details about the Mighty & Mini set top boxes.
We’re introducing two new products, plus updating our companion app. We’ve created a simple comparison, so you can see all the technical and content details of the new products and we’ve
provided some more info below.
Mighty is the update to the current Gen 2 box. The main differences from Gen 2 are that Mighty:
The Mighty is slightly taller than the Gen 2 and comes with a fancy new remote control, but there are no changes in the way the interface / menu looks.
Netflix is still “coming soon” on Mighty as we put the finishing touches on the new app, but if all goes to plan it’s only a few weeks away. YouTube is currently not available on Mighty, as we are rebuilding that app too and we’ll have it up and running in coming months.
Mighty will be available in retail for RRP $399 from early July, but you’ll need to check with your individual store for exact dates.
The Mini is another great way to access the Fetch TV service and it offers all the same content as Mighty. The most important difference is that Mini doesn’t contain a hard drive for recording.
The Mini was designed as a multi-room device, before we realised it was actually an awesome stand alone product. It will also become our multi-room solution, but there’s still development needed before we can launch multi-room. We know there are loads of people waiting to be able to run two interoperable boxes on one account, and we know we’ve been saying it for a while …. but it is coming, we just can’t say exactly when.
Mini will be available in retail stores from early July at RRP $149. Customers with a 3Mbps+ broadband connection from any provider will be able to buy a Mini and connect directly with Fetch TV.
