Great App!

There are so many reasons to love the ABC. The pride of it being our 'national broadcaster' is a big one, but the reason I like most is this ... Even though the ABC is government funded and non-commercial, putting it at the mercy of the govt. for funding, the ABC in all its forms (TV, radio, Internet, apps...) is by far the best media outlet we have in Australia..most young people might not agree but you develop this love and respect for our good 'ol national broadcaster as you get older, and I think that's because it's a media source that provides mostly unbiased content and also it doesn't get involved or hung up in ratings wars (like 7 and 9). Personally the constant battling between the two media conglomerates is just pathetic.

While the annual budget for the ABC might seem like a lot, when compared to the aggressively competitive commercial networks, it's peanuts. But despite this, I believe the ABC consistently manages to produce quality media on all platforms, starting with their content on TV and radio right down to the quality of their apps and Internet sites.

We all need to remember that we are lucky to live in a country where the national broadcaster who is entirely dependent on the government for funding, can openly call out or criticise said government when they do wrong!

Five stars for ABC all the way!!! :D

Great app but why can’t I download it?

Ok so I love this app and it was on my old phone. I used to watch all sorts of good quality shows on here. I got a new phone and totally forgot about this app. I’m trying to download it and it’s just not working. I was playing games on my phone while waiting, like I usually do, but it there was absolutely no progress. So I turned it off, took a shower, had some food and did some work. Literally an hour and a half later, still nothing I’m so frustrated and still waiting. Does anyone know if I need to do something to make it download or does this app just have take over two hours to download? I need to know!
