Presto’s TV Streaming Offering
Subscribers can choose either streaming movies or streaming TV for the same price of $9.99 but they can also choose to combine both offerings into a bundle priced at $14.99. There are no contracts but also no free trial has been announced at this stage.
Presto’s TV offering includes the rights to premium content from HBO, SHOWTIME®, CBS Studios International, Viacom International Media Networks and Hasbro Studios as well as a selection of local content from Foxtel, the Seven Network and ABC Commercial.
Streamed TV Shows
Presto TV will include full seasons of popular TV dramas and will be the only Australian Subscription Video On Demand (SVOD) service to offer HBO programming .
Presto will have full seasons of The Sopranos, True Blood , The Wire, Girls, Sex and the City, Entourage, ,Deadwood and Boardwalk Empire, Californication, Dexter®, The Borgias, Nurse Jackie and Ray Donovan with new seasons coming first to Presto TV for the standalone SVOD window.
There will be a selection on Foxtel’s local dramas and a strong selection of children’s programming.
Shaun James, Director of Presto and On Demand, said “Presto TV will provide a fantastic television experience for subscribers for just $9.99/month with a terrific line up of hit shows, quality dramas and hidden gems which can be streamed ad-free and watched instantly on demand.”
The timing follows on the heels of the recent announcement from rival SVOD provider Stan but Stan will have a lower price for its bundle of TV and Movies at just $10 a month. At the end of the day the content will dictate the better provider and if the extra $4.99 that Presto are charging is worth it. From the list of content revealed today it seems to have the edge.
Presto TV, Presto Movies and the Presto bundle will be available across multiple devices including PC, MAC, iPads and via Google Chromecast, but Android tablets are not compatible from launch. Subscribers will be able to register up to four devices and watch two devices concurrently.
