ABC Switches Off Unmetered iView

iviewmetredSo much for the ABC’s plans plans to expand the range of unmetered providers for iView — right now, watching shows through iView will chew through your bandwidth no matter which ISP you use.

Accessing the ABC through any ISP — including those like iiNet, Internode, Primus, Westnet and Adam which have offered unmetered access through the past — currently produces the message “iView is temporarily metered for all users”. A post on the iView message board explains that the switch to metered view is a result of the unmetered service failing for as-yet-undisclosed technical reasons. Hopefully a resolution will be forthcoming soon. Update: Service was restored Monday evening.
