Foxtel has announced that starting today, Foxtel Platinum subscribers will be able to receive the Presto Entertainment bundle, featuring streamed ad- free movies and TV shows, as part of their subscription.

The free bonus will be available until 31 January 2017, but may be extended if Foxtel gets a good response from customers.

The move will expose Presto to a new audience and adds value to Foxtel’s Platinum package with the addition of thousands of additional hours of TV and movie programming from Presto’s vast library of recent hits and classic favourites.  Presto’s arrival supplements Foxtel’s existing line up of on-demand programming available via Foxtel Anytime.

Ed Smith, Foxtel’s Executive Director of Sales and Marketing, said, “Presto has been rapidly building a leading presence among Australian subscription video on demand (SVOD) providers through great content tie-ups and a library of hit programming that serves as a great addition to the amazing content already available both live and on demand via Anytime on Foxtel. As some of our most dedicated customers, we wanted to ensure that our Platinum subscribers weren’t missing out, so we’re thrilled to give them access to Presto’s great SVOD content as part of their existing Platinum subscription.”

Current TV programing available on Presto include full seasons of critically acclaimed dramas The Walking Dead (seasons 1-5), Mr. Robot (season 1) and Aquarius (season 1), plus the most recently available SVOD seasons of Ray Donovan (season 1-2), popular comedy programming including Modern Family (seasons 1-5), Entourage (seasons 1-8) and VEEP (seasons 1-2). The recently announced exclusive Big Bang Theory (season 1-7) is set to arrive in December.

Movies screening on Presto include, Chappie, Kill the Messenger, Toy Story 1-3, The Godfather 1-3, Lucy and Divergent among hundreds of others.

Presto is available on demand across a number of devices, including PCs, Macs, select iPads/ iPhones, select Android tablets/smartphones, select Samsung Smart TVs and via Google Chromecast and AirPlay on Apple TV.
