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.

Reviews From google play store

I have gone from loving the ease of using this app to completely avoiding it. The recent changes, specifically the logging in seems to be unnecessary. It hasn't improved my interactions with the app. I find the constant logging in painful and the loss of my list annoying . I wish I could go back to the previous version.

I just performed a factory reset on my Android box and I was running the current version of the iview app before, but now I can't reinstall it at all. I was using the latest version on Android 7.1.2 just fine before, but now I don't even have the option to download it! Instead I get the message that my device isn't compatible with this version and the app may not be optimised for this device when it worked just fine with this exact same version! Fix this so I can download it again!

Recent changes to make some features dependant on an online account are a downgrade. E.g. there's no reason to block convenient watchlist functionality and other basic features if we're not logged in. Log in system is clunky and keeps forgetting me, and the app clearly keeps local copy of watchlist anyway so why make it dependant on a new cross-device feature that many of us won't use? It's made the app worse.

Cast functionality recently stopped working. Nexus 5x and Chrome Cast. Cast screen will display as ready, will even start to load as normal but once ready to play reverts back to cast screen. Phone thinks it's still casting. This problem is only with ABC iView, all other apps casting as normal.

Great app but needs to be able to cast to smart TVs as well (eg LG because the iView app for LG does not allow logins). It would be good to have the option to cast through an external casting app like Web Video Caster.

Keeps asking me to enable cookies after updateing on 1 Dec, even though all now allowed. Discovered it was because my default browser is Samsung, not Chrome. In Chrome can register iview account, then delete iview website details and unable cookies in Chrome, and iview app still worked. ABC fixed it within a week though! Dead impressed. Thanks.

Pathetic...working abroad and like to catch up on news at home. Using VPN so should be no issue, screencast refuses to work, meanwhile tech savvy apps like YouTube work fine. It strikes me as either 2 things...some ill-conceived notion about content being used commercially overseas (yeah like people will pay big money to watch ABC content haha)...or we are still the technologically challenged country who won't suck up some pride and just buy last gen Chinese tech !!

Gives us the opportunity to see our favourite programs when we want to see them and also allows us to pause the program when we want. There are no adverts to spoil our enjoyment and it very easy to use.

Latest update fixed a login issue I was having. Still lacking some basic features: ability to set video quality, ability to set video to full screen (full screen by rotation doesn't work if not holding the phone straight), forward/back buttons (10 seconds, etc).

Forced login to maintain cross platform account is not a good thing. Should be optional. Otherwise, pretty good does what you would expect.
