I received my Fetch box this week and was going to add-on via the device the Ultimate Pack but it appears to be $20 when the website says it is $14, do I need to phone up to the get the Ultimate Pack for $14?

I believe everyone is charged $20. Optus will automatically apply a credit to your monthly account of $6 if its a feature of your your broadband plan. Although where does it say $14? On the Optus website its says:
ULTIMATE PACK INCLUDES ALL 45+ CHANNELS FOR $20 PER MONTH EXTRA
Entertainment Pack: If you have an existing subscription to the Entertainment Pack, you can upgrade to the Ultimate Pack. If you do this, you won’t be able to resubscribe to the Entertainment Pack.

@petergdownload thanks for your response. On the offer page it says $14, screenshot below:
Just seems strange that in the fetch interface it does not correlate.

Your current free deal involves a $6 fee for one pack. If you check your bill you'll see you've been charged the $6 but Optus have applied a $6 credit to offset. If you get the $20 ultimate pack it will cost $20 but you'll still get the $6 optus credit (= $14).
Optus do this seemingly weird accounting because if people cancel their services they are up for outstanding cancellation fees. If Optus said the Ultimate pack cost $14 then you'd only pay $14 x months left. But if you cancel under this arrangement, Optus first remove any credits they apply (for signing a 24 month contract) and you're up for the full actual value ($20 x months left).
