Australian subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) platform Presto has agreed a deal with Entertainment One Television (eOne) to offer complete seasons of the independent distributor's content.

As part of the online video deal, the undercover crime drama Rogue, The Firm, a suspense TV show based on the John Grisham novel, and supernatural werewolf thriller Bitten will be available first on Presto.

"eOne has one of the best collections of current hit TV programs worldwide and we're thrilled to add a top-tier selection of some of their most suspenseful and thought provoking titles including Hell on Wheels, Bitten, The Firm and The Slap to Presto. We've already had enormous success following the addition of The Walking Dead, which we recently acquired from eOne as a SVOD exclusive. Today's news will solidify that success even further," said Shaun James, interim CEO, Presto TV.

Ben Bishop, sales director, eOne, added: "We're delighted to be expanding our relationship with Presto. Given the recent success with The Walking Dead, we are confident that they are the perfect partner to bring this exciting new slate of programming to Australian audiences."

Other series included in the deal are Matador, Haven and Rookie Blues.
