ABC iView Trialling More Unmetered ISPs

The only reason anyone shouldn’t be making regular use of the ABC’s iView service is if they don’t have unmetered access — and a new trial makes that much more likely.

David Knox at TV Tonight reports that iView, which has just turned one, is conducting an experiment with Pipe Networks to allow smaller networks to join the existing list of ISPs (iiNet, Internode, Primus, Westnet and Adam) which don’t include access to the catch-up service in monthly download quotas. It’s only happening in Sydney right now, but given the ABC’s national mandate, it’d be surprising if it didn’t go national eventually. (Equally, it would be surprising if Telstra, Australia’s biggest ISP, got on board, given its own content ambitions. But really, if you insist on using Telstra as your ISP . . .)
