Streaming on Foxtel Anytime in May
Game of Thrones season 6 in full swing, joined by Wentworth season 4; Six Feet Under, seasons 1-5; Penny Dreadful, seasons 1-3; Dexter, seasons 1-8; plus movie blockbusters Terminator Genisys, Ant-Man, Trainwreck and more.
Foxtel today introduced the May line-up of new and complete seasons that will join the great programming, already streaming on Foxtel Anytime. Season 6 of fantasy epic, Game of Thrones, arrived on Foxtel in April and will add new episodes to watch both live and to stream via Anytime throughout May.
The highly anticipated fourth season of Australian prison drama Wentworth starts in May and will add new episodes of this Foxtel original series over the course of the season. Season 4 adds to the first three seasons already streaming on Foxtel Anytime.
Foxtel Anytime is also featuring seasons 1-2 of the fright-filled psychological thriller, Penny Dreadful, which introduces viewers to some of literature’s most famously terrifying personalities. The first two seasons will be joined by new episodes from season 3 as it begins airing in May.
The comedy laden Curb Your Enthusiasm staring Seinfeld co-creator Larry David, as himself, in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his life, comes to Anytime in May. The show features a raft of celebrities playing themselves in a series of improvised side-splitting comedy sketches.
Six Feet Under, HBOs dark, irony laced show, starring Michael C. Hall and Peter Krause, takes us into the world of the Fisher family, who own and run a funeral home in Los Angeles. Each episode takes a unique slant at the issue of death against the backdrop of a family that has reluctantly taken over management of a funeral business.
In another dark role, Michael C. Hall appears in Dexter. Starring as the title character, Hall plays the ultimate anti-hero as a blood splatter expert who doesn’t just solve murders; he commits them, on a shadowy journey to punish the guilty.
Other hit programing set to stream on Foxtel Anytime includes, Halt and Catch Fire (seasons 1-2); which returns viewers to the 1980s where the PC era is about to ‘catch fire’; and Ray Donovan (seasons 1-3), which follows an LA-based ‘fix-it’ man catering to the rich and famous.
Foxtel Anytime will also premiere the fun family movie, Minions, as we learn the hilarious story of their beginnings serving various unsuccessful masters including the world’s first-ever super villainess, Scarlet Overkill.
In the lead up to X-Men: Apocalypse in theatres, Foxtel will also screen a special X-Men event offering Anytime viewers the chance to relive the action from X-Men, X-Men 2, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Other top movies screening on Foxtel Anytime in May include: the human vs. machine action thriller, Terminator Genisys; Ant-Man, about the diminutive hero with superhuman strength; the irresistible and outrageous gents in Magic Mike XXL, the feisty and adorable Ted 2 with Mark Wahlberg, and hilarious romantic comedy, Trainwreck, starring the irrepressible Amy Schumer.
