Foxtel’s movie streaming subsidiary Presto can now be viewed on big-screen televisions following support for Google’s Chromecast dongle.

Presto pledged support for Google’s Chromecast when the dongle was launched at the end of May. Today the Foxtel subsidiary has kept its commitment by making it possible to stream Presto from select Android tablets, iPads and PCs to Chromecast equipped televisions.

The video-on-demand company also announced support for select Android tablets. Only a handful of Android tablets are supported due to lingering piracy concerns; an issue shared by Foxtel’s Go application.

Presto is offering one month free access to customers who purchased the Chromecast from its local launch on 28 May. Subscribers to News Corp publications The Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun, The Courier-Mail and The Advertiser will be eligible for two free months.

Presto grants access to eight Foxtel movie channels in standard 576i definition from $20 per month. Movies can be streamed over cellular 3G connections or home Wi-Fi networks.

Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
