Foxtel offers Presto customers cheaper Foxtel Play
Score a discount on two of Foxtel Play's entertainment tiers when you shift over from Presto.
We’ve known for some time now that Presto’s days were numbered, with parent Foxtel set to shutter the service by the end of January 2017.
As part of the process of shifting customers from the Presto platform over to its wider Foxtel Play (now known as Foxtel Now) suite of programming, Foxtel has today announced a discount structure for Presto customers switching from the two-tier Presto service over to the multiple tier Foxtel Play service. It’s not a discount that applies to every possible Foxtel Play permutation, though, instead offering a 3 month discount for Presto customers who opt for the Pop and Movies tiers. That’s a combination that would typically cost $35 per month, but for that 3-month span, ex-Presto customers will get access to both tiers for only $15 per month, which is usually the price of the Pop tier by itself.
On the Pop front, programming includes Foxtel’s exclusive tie-up with HBO, which means you get all of Game Of Thrones to binge on, as well as Westworld alongside content shown on Fox8, SyFy and the Comedy Channel. Movies is what it says on the tin; Foxtel’s current and back catalogue movie channels for your viewing pleasure.
Foxtel’s been busy of late promoting Foxtel Play, having revamped its general pricing structure at the start of the month, and then today also announcing that the Telstra TV will support Foxtel Play.
