Disney XD, 111 Funny & TV H!TS are ceasing transmission on Fetch
111 Funny and TV H!TS
From Monday 31 December 2018, channels 111 Funny and TV H!TS will be removed from the Variety, Ultimate & Entertainment Packs as they are ceasing transmission on Fetch. Fetch were unable to renew their supply agreements with Foxtel who owns TVH!Ts and 111 Funny, so unfortunately Fetch didn't have an option to keep the channels.
Many of the shows from 111 Funny and TVH!TS are also available on Free-to-Air TV and in the Netflix and Stan Apps on Fetch (subscriptions to these apps are required). If you have a Fetch box that records, you can set Series Tags for the shows on the FTA channels.
In other news, we are very pleased to announce that from 1 January 2019, Oxygen, the fastest growing entertainment channel in the US will launch on Fetch as a ‘virtual channel’. Click here to find out more about this new channel.
On Sunday 6 January 2019 Disney XD will be removed from the Kids, Ultimate & Entertainment Packs on Fetch. The channel is ceasing operation in Australia so Fetch had no option to keep offering it.
Some of the most popular shows on this channel (like Gravity Falls, Spider-Man, Pokemon: Sun & Moon, and DuckTales) will be available for your children to enjoy on Disney Channel CH144.
111 Funny, TV H!TS & Disney XD will disappear from the TV guide on the above dates and any recordings from these channels will no longer be viewable.
Please be aware that none of these changes will affect your billing.
