Presto launches Android TV app
Presto now streaming on Android TV 5.0 and above including Sony smart TVs and Google Nexus Players
Presto today announced that it has launched a native Android TV app and is now steaming to supported devices including the new 2015 Sony Smart TVs and Google Nexus Players. The news comes just as the incredibly popular The Big Bang Theory (seasons 1-7) arrives, exclusively for Presto subscribers.
From today Presto subscribers can download the Presto app for Android TV devices via Google Play. The addition of Android TV on select Sony TVs and Google Nexus Players follows Presto’s drive to bring its premium SVOD entertainment to living room big screens and increases the ways in which subscribers can enjoy Presto on the largest screen in the house.
Shaun James, Presto TV CEO, said, “we are seeing a trend amongst the world’s leading consumer electronics makers towards using the Android TV operating platform, delivering smart, internet-powered entertainment easily to the big screen.
“Presto’s arrival on Android TV leads the platform’s move into Australian living rooms with an app that allows consumers access to Presto’s extensive movie and TV content in an easier and more intuitive way than ever before.
“The launch of Presto on selected Sony Android TVs and Google Nexus Players is the next step in delivering even more big screen options for existing and new Presto subscribers. Our timing couldn’t be better as we begin streaming the biggest comedy show in the universe, The Big Bang Theory, which has arrived on Presto today.”
Also arriving on Presto in December is the highly anticipated Home and Away: An Eye for an Eye special event, Presto’s first local commission, along with hit TV programs Bates Motel season 1, Homeland seasons 1- 4, Parks and Recreation seasons 1-6; and movies Unbroken, The Social Network and the currently showing steamy drama Fifty Shades of Grey.
For consumers yet to subscribe, Presto is currently offering new customers a one month free trial^ of the Presto Entertainment bundle subscription, providing access to Presto’s full TV and movie libraries.
