Presto adds Android devices

2015-01-25_2257Presto TV and Presto Movies are now available on selected Android devices.

Strategically announced just as Stan enters the streaming video battle, the Presto App can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or Samsung App Store.

Both Presto TV and Presto Movies are available at $9.99 per month or bundled together for $14.99 per month with no ongoing commitment.

Subscribers can register up to four compatible devices and watch two devices simultaneously.

“Presto is committed to try and offer our services across the widest range of devices and today we welcome Android users to our new unbelievable entertainment experience, just in time for Australia Day,” Shaun James, Director of Presto and On Demand, said.

“We will also continue to work closely with market-leading consumer electronic vendors to ensure our supported device line-up supports the biggest releases in the tablet, mobile, smart TV and gaming consoles and we expect to make further announcements shortly.”

The new Presto TV service will offer a vast library featuring “complete seasons” of programs which are available to stream and watch instantly on demand when and where you want.

Leading content producers such as HBO, SHOWTIME®, CBS Studios International, Viacom International Media Networks and Hasbro Studios will provide programming in addition to local content from Foxtel, the Seven Network and ABC Commercial.

Among the available programs include full seasons of HBO series The Sopranos, The Wire, Sex and the City, Entourage, True Blood, Girls and Boardwalk Empire; from SHOWTIME original series from CBS Studios International including Dexter®, The Borgias, Californication, Nurse Jackie and Ray Donovan; Foxtel’s award-winning local dramas Wentworth, Love My Way and Tangle; from the Seven Network the much loved Aussie dramas Packed to the Rafters, All Saints, Always Greener, and overseas series Mr Selfridge, Rosemary and Thyme and A Touch of Frost; from ABC Commercial a wide range of titles including Summer Heights High, We Can Be Heroes, Ja’mie: Private School Girl, Rake, Redfern Now and popular children’s series and specials such as Bob the Builder, Thomas the Tank Engine and The Wiggles; and from Viacom International Media Networks SpongeBob SquarePants and the lovable Dora the Explorer.

Presto Movies features blockbuster movies and all-time favourite films from a constantly updated collection, ad-free for $9.99 per month with no ongoing commitment. Presto Movies has more recent film titles available than any other SVOD service.

Content will be regularly updated with new TV programs and movies being added over time. Presto encourages subscribers to check back regularly to discover new content via the Presto Community (community.presto.com.au), or to follow us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/presto) and Twitter (@presto).

  1. Wanted to join up with Presto but with no Apple TV app or Airplay compatibility they have totally missed the boat. Stan also leave a lot to be desired as I’ve seen all of the movies they offered.

  2. I tried to have a look at alternative service Stan, to see what type of movies they have, but unlike Presto, you can’t see what they offer, unless you join up. Until this is rectified and I can compare both services, to see what movies each offers, it is pointless me taking up these services.

    Remains to be seen how much data this type of service eats up per month. That is assuming that you have a fast internet, if not the constant buffering will turn people off.

  4. Sorry Presto but until you are in HD you’re not a consideration.
    Also despite HBO the content still leaves a lot to be desired, Stan has a much wider variety.
