  1. Totally agree….it is the best…for me….programs I like …..easy to use…..never a hassle….
    I do also use SBS On Demand….but yes…ads and I have had occasional issues…and not as easy to navigate….sometimes programs are not listed on the menu and requires some chasing around to find them.

    1. Second-best. SBS OnDemand is just as quick and easy to use, has better picture quality, doesn’t have an overly loud announcement about whether people under 15 years should be allowed to watch, and, most importantly, doesn’t have an annoying promo imploring me to watch the awful Hiding.

    1. From what I can see, it probably did pretty well – ~23% of the consolidated figure was timeshifted, which put it into the top-10 percentage-wise & top-20 on raw numbers.

      Note that that includes PVRs etc., not just iView.
