Fetch Channel Scan

This article will show you how to scan for all available Free To Air channels on your Fetch set top box. This guide is suitable for both Generation 2 and Generation 3 (Mini and Mighty) set top boxes.

Note: This guide will not work for performing a channel scan on your TV when your TV aerial cable is plugged directly into the TV. Instructions for this can vary depending on which TV you have, so please check the user guide or the TV manufacturer's website for support information.


  1. You must have a TV aerial connected to your Fetch set top box in order to view Free to Air channels. If you already have one connected, make sure the cables are plugged in securely.
  2. Open the Fetch menu and select Settings from the Manage drop-down menu.
  3. Select Channels.
  4. Select Full Channel Scan to scan for all available Free to Air channels. You may need to enter your Parental PIN before you can proceed (the default parental PIN is 0000).
  5. When the scan completes, you can attempt to view the available Free to Air channels. They'll also be visible in your Electronic Program Guide (EPG).
