FETCH: Free to air channels without an aerial?

Hi Crowd,

My house doesn't have an aerial, and it's going to cost around $1,500 to install one (it's a very tricky site).

Until recently we had Foxtel (via cable), and received all free to air channels via Foxtel 

For a number of reasons we have gotten rid of Foxtel.  Is there any way of receiving free to air channels via Optus Fetch?  

Many thanks.

Only way is to use the free to airs own streaming services - and I dont think fetch has support for these apps anyway (a heap of tvs do though).

Did someone on Yes Crowd answer your question?

Hi

I would suggest purchasing a Chromecast dongle and streaming live TV and catchup using the the TV companies apps.

Re: FETCH: Free to air channels without an aerial?

$1500 sounds amazingly 'tricky'. If aesthetics are of primary importance then yes the $ can mount up. But connecting an aerial to your TV is no huge issue. You could look into a window mounted option. Or perhaps a caravan aerial.

But first try an indoor antenna and see what you get. Return for a refund if you keep the receipt.
