The Australian Broadcasting Corporation has rejected a Freedom of Information request from a security researcher that sought information on its sharing of data through iview, a service that allows users to see programs that have already been broadcast or, in some cases, which are yet to go to air.

Published in Strategy

The ABC is unwilling to say whether it provides Google and Facebook access to the data of iview users, a considerable number of whom have created accounts to access the service prior to 1 July based on ABC warnings that logins would be compulsory in the new financial year.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation has postponed by at least six months its move to introduce compulsory registration for its online iview service from 1 July onwards.

Published in Strategy

The ABC claims its move to make registration iview users compulsory after 1 July is meant to help users in the wake of a survey carried out in 2020, but is silent when asked why, if this is the case, registration is not made voluntary.

The taxpayer-funded ABC will demand that users register and provide personal details, which will also be shared with Google and Facebook, if they wish to use the iview service from 1 July.
