iview adds news clips in 1080HD
Tech improvements on iview ahead of mandatory login.
ABC iview is now offering some clips in 1080p.
All ABC News Stories short clips published from 20 July are now available in HD 1080p quality.
ABC has also enabled HD 720p on news and current affair Live2Vod clips, including all state-based ABC News plus 7.30, Q+A, Insiders, Four Corners.
An ABC spokesman recently told TV Tonight, “We will continue to improve ABC iview in line with our budget and the needs and expectations of our audiences, while ensuring that our content remains accessible to all Australians, particularly those with limited internet connections.”
ABC has delayed its mandatory login for iview to ensure audiences understand the benefits they will receive and the ways personal information is protected.
Due to take effect from July, it will now be introduced by the end of the year.
