This was the last I had from Internode July 10th

@stephenedgar ABC iView is unmetered, but other ABC content is not at this stage, even though we'd like it to be.

Internode used to offer all of ABC content for no data charge. But 
now the ABC is a range of formats which they can no longer deal with 
[so I've been told]. They only have Iview now. Not even ABC streaming radio.

I wrote to the digital guru at ABC but never received a reply. Maybe 
it's time to write them again.
