Foxtel have raised the curtain on their new movie streaming service Presto and it’s a very interesting move. From what I can ascertain, the service, which costs $19.99 per month provides close to what you’d get if you were adding on Movies to your Foxtel Essentials package, which would be costing at least $74 a month. The pricing, therefore, certainly makes it attractive in comparison if you’re into your movies.
Presto, the new online movies service, launches tomorrow. The service offers a monthly pass to stream Foxtel Movies both live and on-demand, offering access to Foxtel’s popular movie content with a regularly updating collection of great films, ad-break free, for $19.99* a month.
Today’s news comes as Presto confirms a new addition to its movie channels. Starting 10 April, the newly announced Foxtel Movies Disney will also be a part of the great programming available to Presto subscribers, bringing with it the magic of Disney’s much-loved movies including a range of classic titles, contemporary films and Disney-Pixar box office hits.
Presto’s movie line up, available to customers as part of their subscription, features an impressive collection of blockbuster releases from 2013 such as: A Good Day to Die Hard, Iron Man 3, Identity Thief and Oz the Great and Powerful along with a host of others and a huge collection of past favourites.
Throughout the month of March, additional hits will join Presto including Star Trek: Into Darkness, The Lone Ranger and This is the End, followed in April and May by The Great Gatsby, Fast & Furious 6, Monsters University, World War Z and Elysium. All of these titles and more will be available with a Presto subscription. Continue reading »
