ABC: no iView on PS4 or Xbox One yet due to lack of resources

View-on-demand compatibility determined by install base, says manager

ABC iView may still be a while away for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, according to comments made by an ABC spokesperson.

The view-on-demand application is currently available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but the company has nothing to announce regarding compatibility with PS4 and Xbox One, according to ABC iView manager Sally O'Donoghue.

"While we strive to be cross platform as possible, that doesn't mean we have the resources to target every new platform from launch," she told TechRadar.

"We are looking at Xbox One and PS4 support in the future, but don't have anything to announce at this time."

O'Donoghue's comments follow the release of a revamped version of the iView application for iOS. The new version supports iOS 6 and 7, while the old app will remain for users across older Apple operating systems.

iView was released for Xbox 360 in 2011, while a PS3 version released the following year. It offers ABC free-to-air content on a by-demand basis for a limited time, as well as the ABC 24 hour news service.

While Xbox One currently hosts applications for both SBS On Demand and Network Ten's netplay, PS4 has no support for local on-demand services.
