Presto Entertainment has sealed deals with HBO and Showtime, ensuring a deluge of top quality content for the fledgling Australian SVOD service

Through the deal, stalwart HBO classics such as The Sopranos, Entourage, The Wire, True Blood and Boardwalk Empire will become available to subscribers in 2015.

“Ausies will see these hit shows first, and in HBO’s case exclusively, on Presto and we know that these TV gems will delight our subscribers,” comments Shaun James, Director of Presto and Video on Demand. “We’re looking forward to more surprises for TV lovers with our full content line up as we approach launch, so stay tuned, Presto Entertainment is just getting started.”

Presto Entertainment, a 50-50 joint venture between Foxtel and Seven West Media, will soon confirm its launch date and will make more announcements on its television content line-up in the coming weeks.
