Optus has added Stan, ABC iview and ABC Kids iView apps to its data-free mobile streaming service.

So that’s all of ABC’s channels — including ABC, ABC2, ABC News 24, ABC ME and ABC KIDS, as well as everything that Stan has to offer (highlights include Better Call Saul, Wolf Creek and No Activity along with SBS World Movies).

Optus’s data-free streaming already includes standard definition Netflix, Stan and Presto (while it lasts) for either $10 extra per month or included for free, depending on your plan.

ABC iview and ABC KIDS iview are available to all customers and access to Stan, Netflix and Presto just requires a current subscription — which they are still accepting until the service closes in January 2017.

Tim Cowan, Head of Mobile Marketing at Optus said customers have been quick to embrace Mobile TV streaming.

“Our customers that have taken up Mobile TV have more than doubled the amount of time they spend watching streaming content on their mobile devices,” Cowan said.
