Media Release: Wednesday, April 1, 2015.
Presto today announced a new line up of hit TV shows and movies set to arrive on subscribers’ screens in April.
Starting 1 April, hit HBO program True Blood will add season six to the sizzling vampire drama giving fans of the supernatural thriller an extra bite to binge on. In addition, the first two seasons of HBO’s hilariously off-beat political comedy Veep, starring Julia Louise-Dreyfus as a former senator turned Vice President of the US, offers subscribers a tongue-in-cheek look at US politics.
April also brings the hit spy thrillers The Americans, which delves into a suspense-filled cold war spy game that pits a pair of deep cover KGB sleeper agents, against the FBI, CIA and even their own mother Russia; and Homeland, the story of modern day CIA operative Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), who finds herself going to any length to protect her country.
Over the course of the month Presto will also begin airing the popular bikie drama Sons of Anarchy; the spine chilling, American Horror Story; sing-along favourite Glee; the hit comedies Modern Family and My Name is Earl; as well as classic cult hits, featuring Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Roswell and The X-Files.
Presto will also unveil another major content announcement this Friday.
New movies joining Presto in April include the cataclysmic epics Noah, starring Academy Award winner Russell Crowe, and Pompeii, starring Kit Harington of Game of Thrones fame; the dystopian sci-fi thriller Divergent; the cheeky and hilarious Sex Tape, featuring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel and home grown Aussie horror film The Babadook.
Presto TV brings together a vast collection of TV shows from quality production houses including HBO, 20th Century Fox, SHOWTIME®, CBS Studios International, Viacom International Media Networks and Hasbro Studios as well as a range of some of the best local content from Foxtel, the Seven Network and ABC Commercial.
