Streaming entertainment service Presto is finally offering a free trial of its full TV and movies subscription bundle. Prospective customers can try out the full Presto package with a free 30 day trial which includes newly added HBO shows such as Rome, Big Love and Hung.
If you've never used Presto before, you'd be forgiven for assuming it came with a free 30-day trial already. After all, the "try-before-you-buy" model is pretty commonplace among streaming services, with both Stan and Netflix in the US offering free 30 day trials.
While it may have been late to the table, Presto is finally offering the same deal. New customers can sign up for a free 30-day trial of its premium Presto Entertainment bundle, which includes access to all movies and TV shows.
Presto is set to expand its TV offerings to coincide with the 30-day trial. New shows premiering on the service include Grey Gardens, Temple Grandin, You Don’t Know Jack, Game Change and the aforementioned HBO titles. Its movie lineup, meanwhile, includes past and present films from MGM, NBCUniversal, Paramount Pictures, Roadshow Films, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox, The Walt Disney Company, Warner Bros. Entertainment, ICON and Entertainment One Films Australia.
At the end of the 30 day free trial period, customers can choose between Presto TV or Presto Movies for $9.99 a month, or continue with the Entertainment bundle for $14.99 a month. There are no lock-in contracts. For more information about the service and compatible devices, head to Presto's website.
As we have noted in the past, Presto's current offering isn't particularly great value for money. Stan is priced at $10 a month while the local version of Netflix has been all-but-confirmed to start at $9.99. Both comes with TV shows and movies.
Still, if Presto's selection of movies and TV shows appeal to you, at least you can check it out for a month with no obligation to subscribe.
