Important: Data Consumption
Please note: you are responsible for the data transfer and consumption charges incurred by you when using any ABC app. The ABC disclaims all liability for such charges.
The amount you are charged for watching video over mobile data (3G, 4G) depends on several things:
* How much data your mobile phone company allows you to download each month at no extra cost (your quota)
* How much data you've already downloaded in that month, and how much of your quota remains
* How much your mobile phone company charges you when you download more than your monthly quota
If you have a small monthly quota, or have used almost all of your monthly quota, watching video over a mobile data (3G, 4G) connection could be expensive. For more information about data consumption in relation to streaming video, please visit the iview FAQs or the Help & Feedback section within the app.
Do check your quota with your mobile phone company, and monitor your usage. Your mobile phone company may be able to send you alerts when you reach the limit of your monthly quota. To disable 3G in your device, visit Settings > General > Network, and turn 'Enable 3G' to Off.
What's New in Version 3.9

If you are on iOS 8 please update to the latest iOS version.
Upgrade to iOS 8.4 to fix video
The problem with videos not playing past a pre-roll is fixed if you upgrade your device to the current version of iOS. Settings, general, software update.
Love this app, it just works. Love my ABC. As with any video streaming app you need a good internet connection - a lot of the negative reviews on here appear to be issues related to poor internet connection.
Stoping, freezing and Crashing**
After recent updates I have been having trouble loading videos past the classification announcement. In order to watch a abc show I am forced to watch them on a laptop or computer which is very inconvenient!! Update now!!
