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.

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

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.

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.

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 The update makes this app worthless now.... January 12, 2014
By Teach

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars It would be great. . .if it WORKED! March 31, 2013

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.

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.
