iPRIMUS, one of Australia’s leading broadband providers, today announced that it has started offering ABC’s iView internet TV service unmetered to its customers nationally.
ABC’s iView service provides iPrimus customers access to six, high resolution channels streamed straight to the customers desktop, without having the data consumed by the service counted towards their monthly data allowance.
iPrimus’ General Manager of Marketing & Products, Andrew Sims said: “This is great for iPrimus’ customers as they can now enjoy a high quality ABC iView service on an unmetered basis.”
“Unmetered content, including iView is excluded from our customers’ monthly download allowance, so they’re able to use their data allowance for other web sites and services on the web,” Sims continued.
ABC iView updates its programs on a regular basis and its news and current affairs programs will be updated daily and weekly, while catch-up TV programs will be available for view up to two weeks after their screening on ABC 1 or 2.
Sims said: “Unmetered access to ABC iView is available to all iPrimus broadband customers. We’ve noticed an increase in customers viewing rich media, largely driven by video portals such as YouTube and as a result, we’ll be looking at some new and innovative content ideas in the New Year to meet customer demand.”
In conjunction with offering ABC’s iView service unmetered to its customers, iPrimus has also started offering other unmetered content, including the iPrimus Gaming Network (iPGN), Lingo (VoIP), File Mirror (games, software patches, drivers and various other files) and the iPrimus Website, Toolbox and Webmail services.
