IPTV State of the Nation: Where does Foxtel's Presto fit into the big picture?

The pay TV giant's latest assault on Australia's burgeoning IPTV space still leaves breathing space for its most significant local rivals.

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.
