Not sure exactly how long this has been the case for, but Lifehacker reader Tim wrote in to say that content from the ABC's justly popular and well-regarded iView service became accessible over the weekend via the equally popular and well-regarded Boxee media centre.
Time notes that he experienced a few glitches in getting iView to work (he had to Alt-Tab into and out of the app to ensure sound worked). I didn't have that problem myself (under Ubuntu). Anyone given this a try on a dedicated piece of Boxee hardware? Either way, it's a welcome addition to one of the more popular media centre software packages around. Thanks Tim!
