Dedicated Show Screens
In recent times, some people told us they had difficulty locating all of the episodes and information about a show. We've taken this on board and have introduced Show Pages in iview. Show Pages bring together all available series, episodes, extras, cast and guest information in the one place, making it easier for you to browse and search for specific shows.

What can I do on a Show Page?
Show Pages group all available series and episodes of that show in the one place, with video extras more easily distinguished. Now, it’s easier to see multiple series (where available), all episodes available to watch, and how much you've watched of each episode. There’s also more information about the show itself such as host, guest and cast information, and related links.

Refreshed Design
iview has been refreshed with an updated look and feel. The new design brings it more in line with other popular ABC services such as the ABC News and ABC Listen apps.

Improved Program Search
We’ve simplified the Search tool to return program titles only, rather than a list of episodes. We’ve also added the ability to recognise common misspellings of popular programs.

Faster and More Reliable
The iview website and mobile apps have been completely rebuilt, making them faster and more reliable. This also allows us to make improvements and add new features going forward.

Accessibility Improvements
We’ve taken steps to improve the accessibility of iview across web and mobile with support for voiceover and expanding text sizes.

App ChangeLog

  • In addition to the major refresh released in June, this update includes these fixes...
  • — layout problems on some screens when switching between landscape and portrait orientation
  • — the app no longer crashes when attempting a search with no internet connection
  • — minor cosmetic fixes

Reviews From google play store

Great to help when you miss part of a series. Love the fact that I can watch my shows when I have the time to enjoy them.

Just updated the app, yet still isn't responding when I hit the play button. Been going on for days.

Wanted to watch old people homes for 4 year olds but it doesn't show any video only a black screen.. Didn't work

Cannot play anything on Android Galaxy S7 device, every time i click to play/load something, it jumps to load, then immediately bounces sharply back to selection screen. Every. Single. Time. Have to resort to minuscule screen iPod, which works with no problems. Please fix, ASAP! this breaks the app completely for android!!

When in full screen, I have no back button or exit full screen button. I have to close the app to go back. The cast button doesn't seem to work, I can only screen mirror and then it's glitchy and randomly crashes out, and as I can't simply click back from my phone, whenever it crashes I have to close the app and find the show all over again to get it back casting again. MY TAXPAYER DOLLAR ETC P.s when did you guys become a news outlet purely for gender politics and it's a Samsung s9

This was best app until recently it was updated and can no longer watch on A drop tablet and phones. Samsung note 10.1 and Nokia phone. However it works perfectly on iPhone 7. Disappointed ABC for not testing on Android devices after making changes. Please fix and give us a date that we can look forward to watching our favourite ABC again!

It's fine, the shows are great but as an app it's pretty far behind other steaming platforms. Progress of shows/episodes doesn't seem to be saved. It would be good if there was the next episode of each show you're watching on the homepage a la Netflix, Stan, YouTube and many others. A simple recommendation system would be great, too. Even just "you've watched the most recent episode of gardening Australia, here's an some highly reviewed episodes from excess produce and dream gardens".

I love the ease of use of the app and until the last upgrade have never had problems with series not playing on my Samsung phone but now I cant watch any of the tv series. I can open the app, look at what tv series it has, watch the ads at the start and it either stops playing or if it does play the tv show for a short time it pixelates and cant be seen properly.. ive been emailing tech support for the past few weeks tried everything theyve suggested to no avail.

Hi, up to this month I was able to watch videos but now will not load, just bounces back to episode selection everytime I select an episode to play. I have uninstalled and re installed several times but no change. I am watching on a Samsung S2 tablet. Is this fixable?

I need (not want) the choice to stream in SD - not everywhere has good enuf signal ( 3g or wifi) to support HD streaming. I couldn't watch app when under 1km with clear line of sight to the only (Telstra) mobile tower, in a large WA town.( is Blue tick phone) - Skymuster satellite often won't stream without buffering, or drops out totally. App is good (MUCH better thans SBS on demand), but could simply & easily be almost perfect. I use 3g to conserve battery, as using 4g = poor battery life.

Cant get it on tv not enough nbn power on my phone sweet

Unable to watch has been terrible for months won't play movies or anything so disgusted in this App

I usually love this app. Right now it has been unable to open any videos; begins to open them and then jumps right back to the program screen. I have updated the app as my phone, uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Thanks for your support.

I have downloaded and re downloaded this app numerous times. In the past it has been very good and has worked very well but on my new phone it won't load or play any of the shows. I really hope this gets fixed as it is the best catchup app for Aussie t.v.

Good app that's easy to navigate but it has random episodes from random seasons of shows like only having eps 9,8,7 of season two of Archer. Where's the rest? Or at least start from episode 1 not the end/middle of a random season.

Downloaded and uninstalled 3 times over the last few months but still won't play on my Lenovo tablet. It originally just stopped working for no apparent reason. * Iview is now working thanks to the wonderful app developer who contacted me to see what could be done to help. Who would have thought that setting the time and date to automatic would fix the problem. Many thanks.

Casting is unreliable when available, unintuitive layout of shows. This update DID NOT fix the casing problem they claimed to; in fact, now the button takes over 3 minutes from app load to appear, then reports being connected to the Chromecast despite it playing a video from Stan.

one thing i would suggest is having quick ff and rw buttons when you double tap at the side of the screen. rw and ff are very annoying to do on the app as it is right now

Great to watch currently showing drama and news on my phone, and catch the ones I miss or want to see again. Easy to navigate and create watchlists. Excellent brief descriptions without hype.

I can't watch anything on this app. Streaming is not working and casting. Tried changing resolution but still not playing videos. Please fix this.

Unable to watch any programs, tried to re down load app which is now pending.. what has happened to the app it used to work well and note I'm missing out on programs that I can't watch in real time...

Won't install on my tablet or Android TV box. Says not compatible with my device. All other apps work including ABCkids ABCme and all other competing channels. Very disappointing.

Works faultlessly, loads content quickly, no interruption to viewing. Pictute is of a very high quality.

This app was absolutely wonderful until the latest update. Now I can't watch any programs on my Android phone. What have you done to your app, ABC? I have no trouble with the other TV apps. So what have you done to make my favourite app impossible to use anymore???

Good for watching tv! Not when you have no data and it be using data.

Wasnt working for me for ages on my tablet. Now works perfectly. Thank you ABC. 5 Stars.

app is open , but when selecting a show to play it doesnt load the show. it is just staying on the select wn episode screen. good app when working

I have uninstalled and reinstalledthis app several times and it just fails to load. Message: ABC iview has stopped. Try again. Feedback. Trying again only results with the same message. Works ok on my Oppo phone but not my Samsung Tablet.

I don't have a TV aerial so this is the only way I can watch your channel thank you for the app

can't access from overseas.

Just give me a lite version. With a pause button that doesn't disappear when I briefly use my phone for something else.

For crying out loud, please add a skip forward 10 sec and go back 10 sec type of UI.

Am travelling and have just downloaded app to view Harrow on Android phone. Absolutely frustrating and useless. It plays for 2 minutes then goes back to the promo screen for all programs and the intro for the episode. I've given up. Please fix, ABC.

How come SBS can set up their app fine for Android streaming devices but ABC can't?

Streaming quality is still pretty poor conpared to others but other than that, app is well set out.

Works great, we need to know the upcoming sports, into ABC programme, especially soccer 👍

Doesnt always show episode of some series or series incomplete or episodes missing!

Not available for Android 9.0 TV streaming devices.

ABC shows are great but on Android TV it doesn't seem to track episodes that are watched and there is no login so can't save programs.

i haven't been able to watch any program. application error. please fix it

Good program to watch ABC programmes. But only reason i downloaded this was to watch season 3 of Glitch.

Search, navigation and load speeds are sub par but it works

it works perfectly ..says a lot about all the other privately owned crappy apps that never work...the ones with 2.7 average rating.

Will not work with android please fix, very annoying!!!

Videos do not play on my android version 8.1.0.

ABC iview Ap helps me catch up with my shows, usually late at night, when I actually watch and not glimpse while doing other things..

It doesn't work after installed successfully. It doesn't allow me to watch anything.

Lovley variety of shows, but I can't watch ant of them :( When I click on them, nothing happens.

Fantastic access to all the ABC offers.

Too political not fair and balanced like they claim just like other news sites..that seem biased.

The website told me I had to download this app to watch a TV show and when I did it then told me that show is unavailable

Extrodinary amount of free content for 9.25mb. Incredible!!

Does not always download required program to view.

Won't load any videos???

App no longer plays or casts.

Fantastic, well thought out app, excellent viewing. Best of all its free

The app won't open the shows at all. No point sending any screen shots as I can search for a program, find it but it just won't play the program. I am using Samsung SM-T8O5Y. And as I am using a tablet the only option I have is to download the app, no option to run the program from the ABC website. It said when I downloaded the app there may be compatible problems, but surely you can set it up to play from the ABC website?

my daughter loves being able to watch all her favourite ABC shows

Loved it, until it required Android 5 over 4.4 and basically turned the tablet we enjoyed watching iview on into a paperweight. Don't see any reason for the restriction since netflix, youtube and a host of others work without this forced-update. It's not like an auto-play on/off feature needs a whole level of higher OS

Find ABC very entertaining

Over all it's a great app, you can watch all of your favorite ABC shows when ever you want, but it does tend to stop a lot during a show. It usually plays again after waiting 8 to 15 seconds and I definatly recommend this app.

I have a Sony TV. What I loved about it was that I could use all of the various catch up Apps, rather than FreeView to find and watch content. However, recently iView no longer works if it is installed via Google Play, but I can still access it from FreeView. @Developers, can you please make it work again, so I don't have to use FreeView, as I dislike FreeViews interface and controls

Downloaded app on Samsung S7 ok, but won't let me watch anything.

Once 5 star now 2 star! Originally when I downloaded the app I used it happily for months. Now I suddenly find that half the shows I want to watch have the picture freezing & bleeding into unrecognisable shapes (sound is fine) . Some shows won't even open at all. My favourite shows are unwatchable! I have uninstalled & reinstalled twice & switched to WiFi. No result. What happened ABC to make something that worked fine go so wrong?

I can easily find and play a program on demand.

OMG you guys actually added archer??? lol the best. honestly though the best came to watch 2 docs. maybe stick a alittle gumbi in there too during the day. Yes ABC.

Great video quality and app layout, but you can't exit the app or even return to the main app menu once you start a video full screen, as the Samsung Galaxy A8 soft phone controls are no longer visible or accessible. The only way I can exit the app after I start a full screen video is to lock and unlock the phone, which is inconvenient. If the developers could fix this bug I would give it five stars.

abc iview and abc kids app's have both stopped working on my Samsung tablet. works fine on my partners Samsung tablet that is older. no problems with Internet. Update: finally figured it out that the time and date wasn't set to automatic on my tablet! for anyone having problems read the faqs in the settings of either app and it will give u a list of things to check

Why can't you just put your videos on Youtube, ABC? For the past 6 months now, I can only watch around 2 minutes on iview before it stops for buffering. It's not my connection. I can easily download or stream HD video on any other service, but not here. At least YT does its best to keep the video playing by reducing the quality. I've switched off your high quality option with no difference whatsoever. It's now totally unusuable for me so I go back to recording on a PVR and uploading myself.

nothing loads and hasn't for weeks now. plenty of feedback on here suggesting similar issues and no remedy. i can only imagine the hit it would be having on the online viewship figures. FIX THE BLOODY APP

As others are describing the app is now useless and will not allow me to watch programs that I have been following on my Samsung for quite awhile. Very disappointed please repair and provide the customer service as promised.

I have limited experience of the app but it all went very smoothly so far. I needed to know if its items can be viewed in landscape orientation. Helpful advice on Google explained that to watch videos sideways on for a landscape view with a Samsung phone can delivered thus: pull the screen down on the home page and touch the fourth image from the left. Done!

TERRIBLE. Just Terrible. Video quality drops in and out when streaming through google tv, even though my connection is more than fast enough. Loading icon overlay (blue circle in the middle of the screen) NEVER GOES AWAY through the entire program playing. Just pathetic coding. Those responsible should be taken out and shot.

cannot openprograms from apps still cannot 10_07_2019 still not able to open programs from iview

I always need to use search to find any program, even just local news. Useless browsing interface. Program date info is shown in tiny dark grey text on a darker grey background. How are people expected to read that??? Not designed for accessibility.

a great app but only 1 star because sice installing on lenovo yoga tablet, the icon has disappeared from home screen and i can no longer use it. contacted abc said they would get back to me about 4 months ago and havent heard anything since.disappointed.

Good that they're keeping on top of the chromecast issues (at least on Android) that plagued this app in the past. Works a treat. Commercial stations slowly catching up but iview is still top.

The controls and content are good, but I cannot comfortably watch more than about 30 minutes of "action", before I find myself becoming physically uncomfortable, approaching nausea & migraine. It feels almost like motion sickness. I suspect this is due to frame rate mismatch, so that when the scene pans or zooms, it doesn't move smoothly but rather jumps slightly a few times per second. Every second. For the whole movie. This is quite disappointing, as I am able to watch action movies from other services, on the same device (a Pixel phone) without any problems. I would prefer to submit this as feedback directly to the developer, but it's not clear how I should do so.

The app never work on Android device. I've install this app for the news streaming and it doesn't work. Its exactly the same problem i had for the last 3 times I've tried over the 5yrs. Don't waste your time

This app doesn't work on Android TV (Nexus Player). The app loads, but clicking on a TV show to watch it does nothing. Update 17/05/2019 - App looks like it has now been rebuilt for Android TV, works great - thank you guys :)

Until recently this app worked well. Now the blue buffer circle appears constantly, even though video is playing. I'm not having issues with any other apps so assuming it's a problem with this one. Please fix!

I loved this app before the last 3 days. I hate it at the moment. Lately it has started to crash repeatedly every couple of minutes when im watching an episode and tonight ads pop up while viewing. I thought the ads were suppossed to be unobtrusive. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but it doesnt fix the problem. Also switching from wifi to 3g doesnt make any difference. Not happy at all.

The application is great, the content is great, but on all platforms, even when using one of Australia's rare fast and stable internet connections, the quality of picture and audio is shocking bad. If the ABC want to pull people away from Netflix and Stan, then they really need to start properly supporting HD content. Watching 'Kill Eve' at the moment (a great TV show) but on iView it's like viewing a bootleg VHS and listening to the soundtrack underwater. Pity, I'd spend a whole lot more time watching the ABC iveiw if it was a whole lot less 5hit... And by the way, I love the ABC, so I'm sad to be leaving a negative review.

From the developer comments - " This release features an overhaul and update of Chromecast support to improve speed and reliability when casting to big screens. " Wouldn't it be better to spend the time on fixing the applications for big screens, such as Android TV, , so casting would not be necessary? Edit - only a few days later, checking here, and it says it is compatible with Android TV. Downloaded it and it looks OK. Have to ask my wife to test it properly. Thanks, ABC, for finally making it work for Android TV. More stars later if it works.

video works for a bit then refuses to load/buffer,it worked last year,prob my cheap fone...still.

what a great app thousands of great shows at your fingertips. It adds more to the best TV channel in the country. As long as the government stops the cuts and increase funding. GO ABC GO

Only plays in Portrait view on Samsung phone. How can you get it to play in Landscape view? I have no such problem with other apps like SBS, Netflix or Foxtel.

Love the app, it works perfectly.

Who developed the latest update of this app? Did they look at a rather average (3 star app) and decide to make it worse. Has the ABC decided to occupy people's time by attempting to navigate iview rather than presenting programmes? Absolute rubbish.

ABC iView barely works at all. Using it is very time consuming and frustrating. A show starts, runs for only a minute or so then stops. It needs to be clicked on to play again. Shows also often freeze. Having to restart a show every couple of minutes is NOT satisfactory. I've given the app 2 stars for its content - it has many shows & is free. Good content however is useless when the app itself doesn't work! Please fix it. It did work initially - why can't you restore the app to how it was?

Crashes every time I open it, absolutely useless - and the website doesn't let you watch, you have to use this broken app.

Well i was trying to watch a tv series that my friends were talking about and they said to download the app, so i did. But whenever i tried to watch anything, it would never play. I thought it was my tablet, so i restarted it. Nothing changed. This was a terrible experience for me on the app. I dont like it.😡😠

Good app work smoothly constantly such a pity that the content quality has deteriorated so much in the last few years probably due to budget restraints by the government and Murdoch

app opens and can scroll through all the programs. However when I try to play anything the program goes to open but immediately close meaning I'm unable to watch anything. The trouble shooting guide doesn't cover this and permissions for app are all allowed too. I haven't found any fixs online. happy to change this rating if you can guide me through a fix. cheers.

Bought a chromecast to watch iView. Meh. Constantly changes between poor quality and better. Then has many spates of buffering through shows. Netflix works fine. Everytime. Ended up watching Peep Show in HD on Netflix with NO issues at all. Disappointed to say the least as I only watch the ABC! I just want catch up and on demand that is 2018.

Android TV app is extremely difficult to use. nowhere near enough qa testing. the interface is buggy and doesnt work in some places. the tabbed view with vertical scrolling means you are constantly forced to scroll up through all the vertical content to the very top before navigating to a new section. When you do manage to navigate to a destination often the remote cant interact with anything on the page. The leanback ui framework was created for a reason, use it. Needs a settings page too.

Good app in general, but can't create an account to save my setting. So if you delete the app, have to start all over again.

This stupid update that's just come through keeps putting nearly a dozen bloody adds on my notification screen and up the top of my phone, if this happens again tomoro I'll see if I can find a way to turn it off but otherwise I'm gona uninstall it and if I need to watch something I'll temporarily install it only when it's needed. How bloody stupid are your development team?

Not able to play any videos, clicking just goes to a brief black screen and then back to the original, as if you didn't click anything. No chromecast or any other stuff, just unable to watch on a simple phone. Disappointing that this is where our tax dollars go 😒

Pointless. Installed ok. Try to play anything and the screen blanks out and then puts you back to where you started from. I just don't understand how you could get something so simple so wrong! Works fine on my Laptop but I have to say Android just must be too hard to do anything right.
