There are two options when it comes to premium videos:

There is no limit on the number of times you can watch a rented video, only the 72 hour time limit from when you first press play.

If you would prefer to buy a video to watch several times, and don’t want the 72 hour time limit, you can purchase videos to keep forever in your library and watch as many times as you please, for as long as you like. The process is exactly the same as for renting, except you click on Buy Video.

The menu

  • Home button – returns you to the homepage
  • Channels – links to each of the FishingTV channels – see below for more details.
  • Library – this contains all your purchased and rented films, plus your watchlist
  • Shop – this is where you can top up your tokens
  • News – all the latest news and opinion from the FishingTV offices
  • Search – use this to search for a particular keyword in our extensive catalogue of films, series and videos
  • Account – go here to view your token balance, manage your email address, password and billing details.

The homepage features a selection of playlists, including ‘New Releases’ which will always be at the top.

You’ll also find links to the six FishingTV Channels, where you’ll find the bulk of our films, series and episodes. These are

  • Carp Channel – all things carpy
  • Coarse and Match Fishing Channel – full of variety
  • Fly Fishing Channel – freshwater and saltwater fly fishing
  • Planet Fish – sustainability, conservation and the power of fishing
  • Predators – big, toothy fish
  • Saltwater Angler – from the coasts to the deep blue sea

A carefully selected collection of episodes and films on a theme; it could be a particular fish, presenter or something totally different. Some are specific to a channel, eg Saltwater Angler, while others draw on content from across the platform. They may contain both free and premium content.

A complete set episodes of classic and original fishing series from around the world. Usually a series will clearly belong to a particular channel, eg the Carp Channel, but sometimes they straddle several disciplines, so you might come across a series in, say, the Fly Fishing Channel that also contains some episodes that are about a different style of fishing, eg lure fishing. This is particularly common in magazine style shows.

If you want to buy a whole series at once (and save money doing so) we offer a Series Pass option, which puts a every episode of that series directly into your library.

When episodes are released over time, such as with Carp Wars, each episode will appear in your library as and when it becomes available on the site.

Series Passes are available in Rent or Buy formats.

Where a piece of content stands alone, outside a series, we call it a film. These include documentaries, fictional films, exposés and more, and range from 10 minutes to feature-length pieces.

In case you want to see everything all in one place, we call all our content ‘videos’, so that’s everything from short hints and tips clips to episodes of series to feature length films, all on one list.

Can I download a programme to watch offline.

No – at the moment you can’t download a video to watch offline, though it is something we hope to introduce in the future.

What browsers do you support?

FishingTV should work on all major browsers, including

  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Internet Explorer
  • Safari

Can I watch on one device and then another?

Yes, you can start watching on one device, pause and then log in on another device and pick up where you left off.

Do I need a different account for each of my devices?

No – your account will work across all your devices: your tokens, library and watchlist will be the same no matter where you log in.

Why can't I watch content in full quality?

Our video player uses a system where it streams at the best quality that your internet connection will allow without any buffering.

Are my credit card details safe with you?

In short: yes. We do not directly hold your data on on our webservers. Credit card details are stored in our CRM system, Infusionsoft, which is PCI compliant and is hosted on secure servers. Infusionsoft is a level 1 e-commerce application service provider. They comply with a rigorous set of standards set forth by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

I have a FishingTV gift card - how do I claim my tokens?

You can only do this on the website, not via the apps for SmartTV or mobile devices.

  1. log in at www.fishingtv.com/login
  2. go to the account page at www.fishingtv.com/account
  3. click ‘Redeem Voucher’
  4. Enter the voucher code
  5. click ‘Submit’

 

I don't have a SmartTV - how can I watch FishingTV on my telly?

There are several ways to do this.

FishingTV can be found on a number of Smart devices such as Amazon FireTV sticks and EETV.

Our apps for smartphones and tablets are also Chromecast compatible.

Many smartphones also have a built in casting capability.

I have the app on my iPad but can't get any sound.

This is most likely due to one of two things:

  1. You need to update the iPad’s software
  2. You need to toggle the mute button on the side of the device.
