It’s finally happened overnight with the last of Australia’s major television networks making its way onto the Apple TV 4. As of today, all five major free-to-air Aussie broadcasters have on-demand apps on Apple’s streaming device with Network Nine being the last to launch an app.
In what can only be described when forced to use polite terms as a streaming version of a face palm, the otherwise respectable broadcaster NBC Universal has completed their international roll out of Hayu, and they’ve already got Foxtel scared.
It’s taken a while, but finally Australia’s ABC iView has arrived on the Apple TV 4 app store, and along with some great new features and their highest quality streams, this could very well be the best iView app yet.
At a time when a lot of great news is emanating from Australia in regards to Internet television, that country has somehow managed to top it all again overnight with an announcement that Freeview (Australia) will soon launch mobile apps that will stream every FTA Australian television channel live, along with aggregated catch-up!
According to rumours originating from the Australian Financial Review, Amazon Prime may be planning to launch their subscription video-on-demand service in that country before the end of the year.
It’s taken an incredibly long time, but Google seems to have finally seen fit to release the latest Chromecast devices to their Australian customers, including for the first time, the Chromecast Audio.
If you’ve got an Xbox One and in the market for some more Australian streaming apps, we’ve got some great news for you as Stan and ABC iView have recently been added to the gaming console’s media hub.
