  1. My regular shows I watch there are Media Watch, Four Corners, any doco I’ve missed that looks interesting and random stuff from ABC2 that I completely forgot was on.

    It’s a great idea I wish more channels would take it up.

  2. ABC’s free downloads for Media Watch eps have been a blessing, given the show’s in a timeslot where there’s been a lot going on throughout the year for many of the other channels. So not surprised it’s the second most popular vodcast offering.

  3. wow those are huge numbers for Good Game, just shows what you can do with a legal site that works without extra software and is unmetered to many users.

    The commercial networks can take a lesson from the ABC.
