Fetch box / netflix connectivity interstate

Hello, really appreciate your expertise 🙂 


travelling interstate and wanting to know if i can take my fetch box with me and connect (im not telly addicted but is a good rainy day backup for the kids). Will use probably Netflix and Movie box.


A/ can i do that?

B/ whose data will i be using upon my login; ie my Optus data or the hosts data ?


Note that the hosts house is not an Optus account holder.

I would love to be able to use my account data and not my mobile data!!!

with thanks and have a lovely day!!

You could take your fetch box but you would be connecting to your hosts account. You can't use your home broadband account as that is only for your house 

A way round could be purchasing a $60 per month wireless broadband plan which would give you 200gb per month.


if you consider that option rather than the fetch box I would consider buying a Chromecast dongle and casting Netflix etc from that. Cost around $50.  You can download the apps to you smartphone and use this like a remote control. Misch easier than setting up your fetch box and you can use the Chromecast dongle at your home.

Oh thanks Dave, thats a perfect answer.


A Dongle was something i was thinking of, but mumma bear is somewhat guarded about divulging information - i dont even know if she has a smart phone or what her data plan is. its like pulling teeth lol.

So its a case of 'wait and see' for when i get there - your information is so valuable, thankyou again !


have the greatest of days Dave 🙂
