Presto fast tracks entire series of Aquarius

Local streaming service Presto will be hosting the entire first season of US drama Aquarius before its linear TV broadcast on part owner Seven’s network.

Our take

Presto’s announcement follows soon after news that NBC will be making the series available to view online after the first episode goes to air. Rather than face the full financial impact of reduced ratings due to pirating and access to VPN servers. Seven may have to release content on Presto to recoup some subscription revenue.
