Foxtel has confirmed its new broadband service will include unlimited streaming of Presto, the Foxtel-owned movie and TV streaming subscription service.
Australian analysts expressed mixed views on the impact that deals like this will on the imminent subscription IPTV war that includes Presto, Netflix, Quickflix and the Nine/Fairfax joint venture Stan.
Foxtel revealed it would enter the broadband market earlier this week, announcing details of triple-play bundles that combine Internet access, Foxtel TV and home phone service.
The service won’t include a Presto subscription, but data used on the Presto service will not count against the data limit on Foxtel broadband plans, Presto said today. Presto costs $9.99 per month to get only TV shows or only movies, or $14.99 monthly to get both TV and movies.
