BigPond celebrates record downloads

July 21, 2011

Animation and family movies have driven a two-week school holiday record for BigPond Movie downloads in Australia.

“We achieved our biggest ever two-week school holidays for BigPond Movies with more than 120,000 movies downloaded and had close to 13,000 movie downloads via the T-Box in one day,” Telstra’s Executive Director of Media J-B Rousselot said.

The top five family movies downloaded during the school holidays were:
– Gnomeo & Juliet
– Hey Arnold! The movie
– Yogi Bear
– Gulliver’s Travels
– Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

The final instalment of Harry Potter at the cinemas also saw families downloading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 two-and-a-half times more than when it was first available in April.

BigPond Movies can be accessed via the Telstra T-Box, LG or Samsung TV’s and certain Blu-ray players. Movies can be downloaded for A$3.99 each
