Best of British TV Headed to Presto

Stephen Fry, Louis Theroux and the best of British TV headed to Presto

Australian streaming service Presto expands its library with some quality content from BBC Worldwide.

Starting on July 16, Presto will be streaming nearly 100 hours worth of BBC Worldwide documentaries. BBC Worldwide is the latest addition to Presto’s ever-expanding list of partnerships (that currently includes HBO, Showtime, abc and CBS Studios International) and brings with it a slew of educational and entertaining titles.

Among the additions are:

  • Michael Palin’s New Europe
  • Brazil with Michael Palin
  • Fry’s Planet World
  • Stephen Fry and The Great American Oil Spill
  • Australia with Simon Reeve
  • Joanna Lumley: The Quest for Noah’s Ark
  • An African Journey with Jonathan Dimbleby
  • Louis Theroux: The Most Hated Family in America and The Miami Mega-Jail
  • The Men Who Made Us Thin
  • My Tattoo Addiction
  • Steve Jobs - Billion Dollar Hippy
  • Mark Zuckerberg - Inside Facebook
  • All Apologies: Kurt Cobain
  • Leonardo: Inside the Mind of a Genius
  • Orbit – Earth’s Extraordinary Journey
  • Origins of Us
  • Inside the Human Body

It’s clear that Foxtel and Seven West Media are pulling out all the stops in their fight against streaming giant Netflix by nurturing global relationships with content distributors like Viacom International Media and 20th Century Fox. The news of BBC Worldwide’s partnership comes just days after Presto announced they will have first-run rights to the second season of the hit drama, Aquarius.
