With Seven’s phenomenally successful, Australian drama Home and Away back on the network for its 29th season, fans of the show might not be aware that there’s a special dramatic movie-length installment of the show that links the events between the end of the last season and the new one – and it’s only available via online streaming on Presto. Plus, you can stream Presto’s commissioned episode free with a one-month trial.
Titled An Eye For An Eye, the movie takes place directly following the 2015 season finale, and sees Brax and Ricky Braxton’s baby kidnapped in a cruel act of revenge. There’s not much time, and the family has to find a way to get the ransom money together before it’s too late. The special episode also sees the welcome return of two well-loved characters, Heath and Bianca.
The movie-length episode was commissioned by Presto as their first original production, and fans will want to make sure they get to watch every dramatic moment. Fortunately, Presto’s made that incredibly easy to do, with a one-month free trial available to all so you can instantly watch Home and Away free of charge.
Presto has been expanding the range of devices it’s available on since it launched, and it’s now easier than ever to stream Home and Away online no matter whether you’re in front of the big-screen TV at home, or relaxing on the train on the way home from work.
