Foxtel and Seven have announced that Presto will close in January.
Tim Worner, CEO and Managing Director, Seven West Media, said: “We look forward to continuing to work closely with Foxtel, in particular in the creation of new programming content.”
Peter Tonagh, Foxtel CEO, said “It has been great working with the team at Seven on Presto and we look forward to future collaborations. We are delighted to be able to offer Presto subscribers access to the new look Foxtel Play, which we know will be highly attractive to them.”
Presto and Foxtel Play subscribers will have exclusive Australian access to two new Home and Away specials to be released this summer.
