With Australians unable to stray far from home, ABC iview is taking them on a trip across the nation with more than 200 additional hours of on-demand content exploring the people and places of this wide brown land.

From our city streets and suburbs to the byways and bush, the ABC is home delivering Australian dramas, comedies, documentaries, crime yarns and children’s shows to keep audiences company during the COVID-19 pandemic.

ABC iview’s supercharged Australian collection features Stateless and new series of Mystery Road and Top of the Lake, plus contemporary classics such as The Secret River, The Slap, Cleverman, The Beautiful Lie and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. With some 200 hours of additional Australian content, viewers could binge on the ABC’s new collection of homegrown shows 24-7 for more than a week, if they were so inclined.

Josie Mason-Campbell, ABC Acting Head of Programming, said ABC iview’s additional Australian content supported homegrown creativity.

“As the nation’s leading creative voice, the ABC has boosted its support for Australian stories by securing the streaming rights to more local dramas, comedies, documentaries and children’s content, adding to our current collection of programs.
