Foxtel CEO Patrick Delany says the expansion of the relationship will see the audience reach Foxtel has historically provided the ABC with the availability of both live channels and on demand content with the integration of the iview app into the New Foxtel Experience.

“This will see ABC iview available in more than 1.2 million Australian homes with the iQ3 or iQ4 in November, alongside Netflix and the SBS On Demand app,” Delany said.

ABC Managing Director David Anderson said: “ABC iview has been at the vanguard of video on demand in Australia since it started 11 years ago and it continues to be the leading free-to-air VOD service.

“It is great that iview will now be available directly through Foxtel, making it easier for subscribers to watch even more fantastic Australian content.”

Under the deal, the iview app on Foxtel will offer a catch-up service for ABC content including its most popular shows such as Gruen, Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds and Glitch - together with ABC Kids programming like Bluey and Play School.

The app also provides live streams of the ABC’s television networks.
