Optus charging for sbs on demand through fetch tv

Why do I have to pay to watch shows on sbs on demand through fetch tv when I can stream for free on iPad?

Hi

You don't, there is no subscription for SBS on any platform.

This is the second thread I've seen people talking about this. I need to test tonight now but there shouldn't be any cost as Dave has said.

@SamSam

I'm wondering if it the warning that comes up sometimes to say you are using data against your allowance.

That's the only thing I can think of but that's always been there so not sure why there's been 2 threads in 2 days about it now.

 

Maybe just a coincidence

Hi @SamSam

Just tried on my Fetch and just got the warning about the data.

This is definitely not a data warning.  I am wanting to watch a specific series which is free streaming on my iPad but fetch is requiring $32.98 payment to watch on sbs on demand.

why?????

I can see what is happening.

 

When you do your search for the program select 'the handmaid's tale'and not 'the handmaid's tale season 2. Once you have selected the program it gives you the choice of all the episodes from both series without charge.
