ABC iView Gets Design Update, Genre Search

iViewUpdatesThe ABC has just rolled out a design update for its iView catchup service. Apart from a general refresh, the big change is the ability to browse programs by genre.

Being able to see everything in categories like ‘comedy’ and ‘documentaries’ is a welcome enhancement, especially for those occasions where you’re looking for something to watch rather than having a particular program in mind. As ever, users with one of the ISPs that offer iView unmetered (Adam, iiNet, Internode, Primus, Westnet, and universities using AARNet) can watch to their heart’s content; others might need to exercise caution.

We eagerly await further developments, such as the PS3-friendly version. What other improvements would you like to see to iView? Let us know in the comments.
