Presto customers to enjoy no data download limits on Foxtel Broadband
Unbelievable entertainment now streaming on Presto
Presto today confirmed that Foxtel Broadband subscribers will enjoy no data download limits when accessing Presto’s unbelievable TV and movie entertainment. The news comes on the heels of this week’s announcement by Foxtel that it has now launched Broadband and Home Phone bundles.
Presto customers who take one of the new Foxtel Broadband bundles will now see even greater value from their combined subscriptions and can binge on their favourite movie and TV shows unrestricted by data download limits.
Shaun James, Director of Presto and On Demand, said, “Presto subscribers are passionate about entertainment and enjoy bingeing on their favourite shows. The massive volume of hours viewed each week is testament to Presto’s popularity and today we’re thrilled to confirm that Foxtel Broadband subscribers can now indulge all they want on the programs they love free from data limits.”
Presto recently launched Presto TV bringing an unbelievable selection of 1000s of hours ad-free television shows to Australian TV lovers for $9.99 per month*.
Presto TV’s launch follows last year’s successful launch of Presto Movies, which features blockbusters and all-time favourite films from a constantly updated collection of great movies.
For $9.99 per month Australians can subscribe to either Presto TV or Presto Movies or bundle both services for $14.99 per month with no ongoing commitment, and now it offers no data download limits for Foxtel Broadband subscribers.
Presto TV brings together a vast collection of TV shows from quality production houses including HBO, 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.
