Foxtel's movie streaming service Presto halves its subscription price

All you can eat movies for $9.99 per month - no contract

Foxtel subsidiary Presto has announced it will halve the price of its video-on-demand subscription service to $9.99 a month as of Sunday, 17 August.

Subscribers to Presto can access Foxtel’s catalogue on movies on PCs and mobile devices on a month-by-month basis. The service has access to roughly one thousand movies from several notable Hollywood studios, in addition to granting subscribers access to Foxtel’s seven live movie channels.

Presto supported PCs and select Apple iPads when it launched in March, but since then it has added support for select Samsung tablets, Nexus tablets and Google's Chromecast.

Movies are streamed in standard 576i definition free from advertisements over cellular 3G connections or home Wi-Fi networks.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
