Chromecast the most popular way to view Presto’s blockbuster hits; Free trial Presto subscription offer set to end on 31 August 2014
Presto, Australia’s premier entertainment streaming service, today announced that Google Chromecast has taken the lead as Australia’s favourite way to enjoy their blockbuster movies library.

On 17 August 2014, Presto unveiled its new ‘all-you-can-eat’ flat rate subscription price of $9.99 a month with no lock-in contract*, which has seen a massive increase in traffic to the Presto site, along with a huge spike in Presto subscriptions.
Shaun James, Director Presto & VOD, said, “Since launching Presto on Chromecast, we’ve had loads of great feedback from people enjoying Presto on the big screen, and now, with our new, simplified pricing, we’re seeing an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response from new subscribers. We’re thrilled to be offering a free one month Presto subscription to customers who purchased a Chromecast device since its Australian launch, but wanted to remind them that this great offer ends soon.”
