ABC iView now available on PS3

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s iView service is today available for the PlayStation 3, accessed directly from the XMB’s new TV menu after logging in to the PlayStation Network.

The ABC iView XMB icon is just a web shortcut, which opens the PS3’s browser and launches the fullscreen Flash application. The service, which was recently revamped, used to run terribly through the PS3 browser, but now runs smoothly, just as well as it would on a PC. Streaming from iView does not consume download quota for users of iiNet, Internode, Westnet, and a number of other ISPs.

iView is essentially the Australian equivalent of the BBC’s iPlayer, which is available on the PS3 and Wii. Similarly, the Australian deal is non-exclusive, meaning the service could spread to other devices.
