  1. It’s good to see this being offered to those with the free/silver accounts rather than just being locked behind the paid/gold accounts, but I can’t seem to figure out if using it counts on your download quota for those who are currently able to watch iview without affecting their download usage on the iview website.

  2. It’s great to see the ABC continuing to be on the forefront of digital media.

    It’s a shame the Xbox itself has inbuilt fans that are so loud, they are completely distracting. I’ll stick with the PS3 version.
