Presto in December

Home and Away: An Eye for an Eye and The Big Bang Theory stream exclusively on Presto while Fifty Shades of Grey continues to heat up the screen

Presto today announced key programming set to light up the screen in December, kicking off with the highly anticipated exclusive TV special event, Home and Away: An Eye for an Eye. The special event centres on the Braxton family and will see the special guest return of Home and Away favourites, Heath (Dan Ewing) and Bianca (Lisa Gormley). Home and Away: An Eye for an Eye will begin streaming from 9 December from 8:30pm (AEDT).

Also streaming exclusively on Presto, starting from 1 December, is The Big Bang Theory seasons 1-7 featuring the comedy capers of physicist roommates Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), whose introverted lives are turned upside down when Penny (Kaley Cuoco), an attractive waitress and aspiring actress, moves in across the hall.

The steamy romance Fifty Shades of Grey has only just arrived, but is already causing a stir with subscribers and will continue to heat up the screen only on Presto.

The highly charged CIA thriller Homeland adds season 4 in December and sees Carrie Mathison’s (Claire Danes) career at the CIA take off when she becomes an overseas station chief in a highly volatile region, but every drone strike and tactical raid comes at a cost and she quickly learns the true price of power.
