The ABC didn’t just build another streaming service with the iView online platform: it build the yardstick for catch-up content. The ABC is looking to cut costs under an Abbott government review, but iView is reportedly safe.
According to comments made by ABC managing director, Mark Scott yesterday, the iView platform will be shielded from the trimming that other divisions may experience.
Scott said that the ABC would continue to support mobile and tablet users, as well as browser users of the iView service.
