1.0 out of 5 stars No Cable Provider, no use for this app! January 7, 2014
By Freefln
Verified Purchase
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!

1.0 out of 5 stars frustrated January 8, 2014
Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars no service provider January 8, 2014

The joy in coming to this app was I could enjoy the shows I missed without paying for cable. Which is way overpriced. Now the joy is gone and so is the app.

1.0 out of 5 stars was 5 stars, now just 1. here's why: January 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars "Verify to Watch" January 17, 2014
Verified Purchase
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!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars The update makes this app worthless now.... January 12, 2014
By Teach
Verified Purchase
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.

My kindle also got the update failed message. I wonder if it's because I have the 'location based services' disabled. When the ABC app tried to update, it listed several things it wanted to add, including GPS location. I will not enable the location-based services just to use this app, but has... Read More

ABC app
I can't even get this app to install on my Kindle Fire. Very disappointing. But now that I have read other reviews and see that you must have a cable subscription to even watch programs that are broadcast FREE I figure why even bother.
