Presto recently announced subscribers now have access to stream a massive library of its premium TV and movie programming in crisp high-definition (HD), with more than 2500 hours available and more being added each day.
The news comes as the premium subscription on demand (SVOD) provider also announced support for AirPlay for Apple devices and launched a new updated mobile and tablet application.
Presto subscribers can now access a constantly growing selection of movies and TV in stunning HD from a number of supported devices which include select Apple and Android smartphones and tablets, 2012 – 2015 model Samsung Smart TVs, Google Chromecast and now, Apple TV using AirPlay on iPhones and iPads.
Presto will also be a partner for Telstra’s new Telstra TV service on Roku, expected to launch soon. Presto is also well advanced with its expansion plans for additional smart TVs and games consoles and is expected to make further announcements on these and other devices soon.
“Presto customers have enjoyed streaming our great movies and drama since launch, but feedback has consistently shown a strong desire for HD,” said Shaun James, Interim CEO, Presto.
Presto HD streams up to 1080P and uses an adaptive bitrate to ensure the best quality video for a given internet connection while providing a smooth streaming experience. Viewing on Presto is unmetered for Telstra Bigpond residential subscribers and Foxtel Broadband subscribers.
Presto’s new mobile and tablet app adds new features including: Watchlist access, letting subscribers keep track of favourites and view on the go; Play-Next-Episode functionality, which screens the next show in a series; Parental Control and Registered Devices View, so subscribers can review ratings settings and devices on the go. This combined with Presto’s new HD and 5.1 Surround Sound support are all wrapped in a new, sleek user interface providing an improved user experience for subscribers.
For consumers yet to subscribe, Presto is currently offering new customers a free 30-day trial of the Presto Entertainment bundle subscription, providing access to Presto’s full TV and movie libraries.
