Foxtel Platinum subscribers get Presto Entertainment bundle


     If you’re a Foxtel Platinum subscriber, you’ll now get full access to the Presto Entertainment bundle, but only if you subscribe directly from Foxtel. 

Available to Foxtel Platinum customers until 31 January 2017 and only while they remain subscribed to Platinum, these customers are now getting the added bonus of a full Presto Entertainment bundle subscription.

Unfortunately for Platinum customers connected via ‘Foxtel from Telstra’ or ‘Optus TV featuring Foxtel,’ this special deal does not apply to you.

The Presto Entertainment bundle features ad-free movies and TV shows, all streamed to you, which therefore requires that you have a broadband Internet connection.

Foxtel says the move is set to ‘dramatically increase the value of Foxtel’s Platinum package with the addition of thousands of additional hours of premium TV and movie programming from Presto’s vast library of recent hits and classic favourites.’

In addition, Foxtel cunningly notes that ‘Presto’s arrival serves the perfect supplement to Foxtel’s existing line up of the latest 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.”

Presto offers content from leading TV production companies including HBO, 20th Century Fox, Showtime, CBS Studios International, Viacom International Media Networks, Hasbro Studios as well as top local content from Foxtel itself, the Seven Network and ABC Commercial.

It also includes movie content ‘from major and key independent film studios including MGM, NBCUniversal, Paramount Pictures, Roadshow Films, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox, The Walt Disney Company, Warner Bros. Entertainment, Entertainment One Films, ICON, Studiocanal and Transmission Films.’

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.
