I was able to watch old episodes of shows up until the last update. I don't understand why I need a provider now. The last time I checked, abc is free programming, so why would I need to show proof of a provider??? I have Dish Network and it's not one of the choices. I am very disappointed in the changes to this app. This app is totally worthless to me now.

You used to be able to watch any ABC produced and broadcast show. Awesome, especially for those of us who live in the middle of rural America where service via "rabbit ears" is spotty and cable non existent. But I went to watch an episode the other day too discover that even though you are subjected to multiple add during the show (fine) you must now have a cable subscription in other to view these shows that freely broadcast over the air. Not cool ABC.

This was a great app up until about a week ago where they changed so that not you have to verify your cable company/account in order to watch the a lot of the newer stuff... very big let down to a lot of the long standing customers who use this app and no longer worth it to me. Very big disappointment ABC!!!

ABC screwed their app users over for the last time. After years of streaming glitches, they've now cut off their Internet users completely by allowing viewers only through a cable provider. Hello! It's the Internet age! Why create the app in the first place? If you want to lose customers so badly and screw your lousy sponsors, just can the app already!

I cannot understand why the inter-galactically large Disney empire (that owns ABC) cannot assign some paean to test an app like this on leading tablets (like the Kindle Fire HD) before they release it to the Appstore. The intent is good. The execution is awful. Image/ video quality is intolerable. The video streams break up into slow motion mosaics that make every show feel like an under water dream (or should I say nightmare) sequence.

What a major disappointment! Most of the shows I like to watch are on ABC. Had to uninstall this immediately after testing several shows.

Amazon is almost equally to blame for this fiasco... They are so blanking righteous about the fact that they 'curate' (aka, block out) lots of available content from the Kindle devices (read, they are afraid of a competitive market) to ensure high quality. If that is true, why did they let this barely functional, low performing app (on their Kindle Fire HD) through the screening process?

As someone who CANNOT get cable where she lives and sometimes has trouble getting ABC to come in on the digital station this app kept me from getting behind on my favorite shows and now this?!! For a station that is not solely on cable, I find this new twist not only frustrating but disheartening as well. What a shame ABC.

I was really excited to see this app finally come to the Kindle Fire. I have it on my wife's iPad and it works great, however this app is a little on the buggy side. I have been attempting to watch Once Upon A Time and for no reason the app will leave the stream and go back to the home screen. I have also had it crash out and start over when I am trying to back out of the player.

I noticed that I don't get as clear a picture as I get on my wife's iPad, but that could be something with my Kindle Fire, or it could be within the app.

I am hoping that the updates will come in a timely fashion to fix the crash. I gave it three stars in the hopes it will be patched otherwise I would have given it only two.

I play video on my Kindle Fire HD all the time, and I don't have a problem: Netflix,Flixter, YouTube, even PBS, but this app only plays the commercials and takes FOREVER TO BUFFER. Nice try. ABC, but not quite there yet. I'll be happy to watch your sponsors, but only if my video actually plays.
