Foxtel to launch VoD movie service

Australian Broadcaster Foxtel has announced the launch of its online entertainment service Presto, offering a monthly pass to stream Foxtel Movies, providing live and on demand access to Foxtel’s most popular movie content. Presto’s launch is set for later this year.

Presto features content in license to the Foxtel Movies channels including access to box office releases of 2012 at launch along with on demand access to the Foxtel Movies vault of recent and older favourite movies.

Richard Freudenstein, Foxtel Chief Executive, said: “Presto is the next major step in offering customers a product that’s just right for them. Presto will be a great online service for movie lovers with streaming through an intuitive interface and great movies backed by curated collections, recommendations and critics reviews.”

Presto includes access to all seven live Foxtel Movies channels: Foxtel Movies Premiere, Foxtel Movies Comedy, Foxtel Movies Drama/ Romance, Foxtel Movies Thriller/ Crime, Foxtel Movies Action/ Adventure, Foxtel Movies Family, and Foxtel Movies Masterpiece without the need to buy-through a basic tier.

Presto will launch initially for PC and Mac computers and will be available on compatible iOS and Android tablets to Presto subscribers shortly after.
