As I understand it, it's not the content type, but the source: ABC has 
moved to using a CDN (content delivery network), which means that the 
server the user connects to changes all the time. Internode are on 
record as saying they don't have as advanced a metering system as iiNet 
do, so they are unable to unmeter as easily.

Search the Whirlpool forum[1] for more details on this.
