After years of stealing scraps from the table, Australians finally have a modest smorgasbord of online video services on which to feast. Foxtel's all-you-can-eat Presto movie service is the latest offering, but is it enough to meet our insatiable appetite for content?
Only a few years ago, the idea of access to Foxtel content without a full Foxtel home subscription seemed fanciful. But rather than stick its head in the sand like so many other old-world media giants, Foxtel has seen the writing on the wall and decided to embrace the internet rather than fight it.
At $19.99 per month, the Presto movie service is Foxtel's latest online offering. You won't find television shows like Game of Thrones on Presto -- it only offers movies drawn from seven of Foxtel's movie channels.
