ABC begins streaming all its TV channels on iView

The ABC has moved to start live streaming all of its TV stations on its iView platform, echoing recent moves made by commercial rivals Nine and Seven in the streaming space.

The announcement:

In a further nod to acknowledging that audiences are accessing ABC content across multiple devices, ABC is pleased to announce that from today, ABC2, ABC3 and ABC KIDS will be available to watch live, alongside ABC and ABC News 24 on iview. Audiences can now watch any ABC channel live whenever and wherever they like – including on computers, smartphones and tablets.

To stream any ABC channel live on iview visit iview.abc.net.au or download the latest version of the iview app from the App Store or Google Play and head to the channel page to ‘Watch Live’. All live streams reflect ABC’s Sydney, NSW schedule.

As well as live streaming, ABC iview offers convenient access to watch all your favourite TV and also original and exclusive content. The new series, Moment of Truth is one such iview original production.

Premiering Monday 18th July, the 10 x 10 minute documentary series, Moment of Truth explores the hidden lives of Australians. Each self-filmed story explores a surprising personal confession or revelatory moment of truth. From a young woman grappling with the task of revealing herself as transgender to her family, to a porn star coming clean to her partner, Moment of Truth is emotional, hard-hitting and intimate.

Watch Moment of Truth and all ABC TV programs on iview now.
