Has Your University Made iView Free?

Has Your University Made iView Free?
iViewPauseBack in October, academic Internet provider AARNet added itself to the list of providers who don’t meter access to the ABC’s iView service, but whether that actually made the service freely accessible depended on each university’s policy. Has your uni come to the party?

Lifehacker was reminded of this issue when reader Matthew M wrote in to say the University of Queensland has begun rolling out quota-free services to all staff and students, including iView along with a bunch of other handy content (the most notable Microsoft, which would help with all the endless patching).

So we’re wondering: are students next year all going to be consuming bandwidth watching The Colbert Report on ABC2, or are some campuses dragging their feet? Tell us what’s happening at your university in the comments.
