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 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 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.

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!!!

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.

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 Crashes frequently
It works if you want to watch an old episode, but every second time it crashes and you need to restart the kindle to make it work again. Really annoying.

1.0 out of 5 stars app is crap
App requires you provide the name of a cable provider. If I had a cable provider, I wouldn't need the app. This is an utterly stupid move by ABC.

1.0 out of 5 stars This app is pointless
Like the title says, the app is pointless. Why would I need a cable provider to watch a show that I normally watch on local TV for FREE? Greediness is never appealing, ABC. 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.

failed upgrade
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
