Media Release: Wednesday, March 25, 2015
Presto will commemorate the centenary of the First World War and the centenary of service by offering on-demand access to a range of exclusive documentary programming from Foxtel’s History channel.
Presto TV and Presto Entertainment subscribers will be able to view the History channel’s acclaimed and exclusive locally-produced five-part series The Memorial: Beyond the ANZAC and Tony Robinson’s Tour of Duty, which will have its world premiere on the History channel on Tuesday, March 31 at 7.30pm. Episodes of Tony Robinson’s Tour of Duty will be available to stream ad-free on Presto just seven days after they air on the History channel.
Presto will also offer the History channel’s ASTRA Award winning and Logie Award nominated locally produced documentary The Battle of Long Tan and documentary specials For Valour, The ANZAC Spirit, The Digger: A History and Beyond Kokoda, as part of the Presto TV and Presto Entertainment bundle service.
In addition to this exciting programming initiative, to further commemorate the centenary of service, Presto has partnered with the Camp Gallipoli Foundation to offer new subscribers, in the lead up to the Camp Gallipoli events being staged throughout Australia on April 24 and 25, a complimentary two month trial of the Presto Entertainment bundle~. This offer is available from March 26 to April 26 and will include access to all of Presto’s TV and movie content, including access to Presto’s specially curated commemorative programming.
To experience Presto’s commemorative offer, new Presto customers can visit www.presto.com.au/campgallipoli and sign up today. Customers can also gain access to discounted tickets to the Camp Gallipoli events by visiting www.presto.com.au/campgallipoli and following the prompts.
At the end of the two month commemorative offer period, promo customers keen to stay on as Presto subscribers can choose between the Presto TV or Presto Movies subscriptions, respectively $9.99 a month each, or continue with a Presto Entertainment (TV and movies) bundle subscription for $14.99 a month, with no ongoing commitment*.
“Camp Gallipoli is delighted to be partnering with Presto as we commemorate the centenary of service and the ANZAC spirit,” Camp Gallipoli CEO Chris Fox said.
“Presto’s ability to bring together some of Australia’s most emotive and inspiring content from the History channel in an on-demand collection provides a chance for Australians to actively rediscover a positive national identity.
“Camp Gallipoli is also offering Presto customers the opportunity to share the essence of the iconic Gallipoli experience, by participating in a vigil under the stars, followed by a dawn service, as Australia commemorates 100 years of ANZAC spirit.”
