MR. ROBOT is screening in Australia on Presto
Critically acclaimed hacker drama MR. ROBOT is finally on its way to Australia. Here's when you can see it and why you should be excited.
Presto (the streaming video on demand service half-owned by Foxtel) today announced that its Australian subscribers can begin streaming MR. ROBOT immediately. MR. ROBOT is well into its first season – it began TV broadcast in the US in June on USA Network, and the NBCUniversal production is now up to episode 8.
While any delay in legal availability is annoying, the upside is we already know the show is impressive. The remaining episodes will be made available on Presto immediately following the broadcast in the US.
This isn't Presto's most ambitious attempt at fast-tracking a US series. Back in May, Presto announced it would be streaming an exclusive first-run of the David Duchovny series Aquarius. in parallel with the US. This was exciting news for fans of the Californication star, but it meant we didn't entirely know what we were in for. (Nonetheless, the first season proved popular enough to warrant a second).
When can I watch MR. ROBOT on Presto?
MR. ROBOT will become available on Presto from August 14. The first seven episodes of the series can be streamed immediately and each remaining episode will become available shortly after it airs in the US.
