By now, you’re probably heard of the new way to watch your favourite TV shows and movies when you want to. It’s called subscription video on demand (SVOD). Personally, I just call it video streaming.
I also like to think of it as the video equivalent of a degustation menu. You get to choose from a top selection of some of the finest and most-loved ad-free movies and TV shows.
Which is why I’m pretty excited about Telstra’s new partnership with Presto, one of the leaders in the rapidly evolving SVOD market.
This partnership gives Telstra the ability to offer our customers Presto TV, Presto Movies and Presto Entertainment services across a range of our product offerings – including for our Pre-Paid mobile customers.
It means terrific offers and new ways for you to enjoy your favourite TV shows and movies on Presto, via your mobile, tablet or other compatible devices.
Try Presto on us
To give you a taste of the SvOD revolution, we’re giving our Pre-Paid customers a bonus three-month free Presto subscription when they activate on our Telstra Pre-Paid Freedom offer (data charges apply when streaming on the mobile network). We’re also giving all our Pre-Paid Freedom customers a bonus 500MB of data on Freedom recharges $30 and over.
From today, we’re also giving our new and recontracting Post-Paid customers taking up a Mobile Accelerate plan over 24 months a free three-month Presto subscription (data charges apply when streaming on the mobile network).
We’ll also be bringing Presto to the T-Box later this month, giving thousands of Telstra customers a quick and easy way to access this great new content in the home.
Even better, Presto is unmetered for Telstra customers connecting to the service via Telstra home broadband, meaning you can watch your favourite show all day/night long and not worry about it affecting your data allowance.**
