Okay, so this is slightly old news, but if you’re a Doctor Who fan hanging out to check out the first episode of the new series, ABC have decided to air the show on iView two days before it broadcasts on ABC1. Video on demand for the win!
From midnight, Friday April 16, you’ll be able to check out the first episode, which is just two weeks after the UK get to see it. The episode will be broadcast on ABC1 at 7:30pm on Sunday April 18.
Considering that Doctor Who was by far the biggest show on iView between April and December last year, I’d fully expect this to be a huge success for the public broadcaster. Especially since you can now view iView content on the big screen through the PS3.
