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

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.

Why did you have to change it? Really upset that I can't watch my shows anymore since I don't have a cable provider. Thanks a lot.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, needs work March 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Guess it's not compatible on Fire HD March 31, 2013
Verified Purchase
I was excited to see this app available on Amazon. After downloading it, the excitement ended. After trying to watch an episode of Grey's Anatomy I had to restart it 4 times. Twice it went back to the spot it cut off at, but twice it started all over. Not worth it until they fix this glitch. Time to delete.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading January 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
Don't put on your site that I will still be able to watch my favorite shows if I download the app if you have no intention of allowing us to if we don't h a 've a cable tv provider. It's misleading and unfair to those of us who can't afford cable who can't watch all of their favorite shows on Netflix. So it's either I get cable, wait for the entire season to be available on DVD or wait until Netflix decides they're going to add Castle on Netflix for streaming witch by the way takes a while from what I heard. So thanks for nothing.

The app works fine. The only issue is that it does not make sense to have an app to watch an internet show without a provider. Cable tv is expensive and a waste of money. Read more
