Useless! Requires participating cable provider and most providers charge additional fees for anywhere viewing so its not really a free app. Only time you can use it is in your own home unless you pay your provider for everywhere coverage. Useless!

Very Aggravating

It makes no sense that the Watch ABC app uses the location to decide if you can stream live or not, when the Watch Disney app uses the cable provider? As a college student with minimal channels in the dorm cable package, I use my parents cable provider to be able to watch anything I would actually like to see and would make sense that I could use this feature on the Watch ABC app to stream the American Music Awards. Just doesn't make sense and is very frustrating. I understand they are "working to add more locations" but when I can use my cable provider on another app owned by the same company, it doesn't do anything to know that they are working to use the location option more.

Worst App Ever

3 times as many commercials if you use this app. ABC is broke because of their miserable liberal bias in news coverage and trying to make it back on popular shows by shoving an overabundance of commercials. It's almost time that such strategy forces us to give up some of our favorite shows.

Not free - you need a subscription

Get your head out of pre 2k! Your app is NOT free because you can't use it if you don't have a subscription. ARE YOU KIDDING? In this day and age? Are you encouraging people to NOT WATCH YOUR PROGRAMMING including the commercials? STUPID!

I don't like to wait

I used to love it, when you didn't have to wait to watch the latest episodes. I have a cable company that is not on the list and that excludes me completely of watching my favorite shows when I need it he most. I work a lot, so I came home late at night and I loved when I was able to catch up the same day, the episode was release. Instead I have to wait and now I stop watching a few series that I liked just because of that. Hope it could return to the way it was.

This App wants me make to harm myself!!! App constantly cuts off toward the end of the episode and you can't skip back to where you were. Stop torturing me with the same 4 commercials, too! 1,000,000 commercials!!!

Hangs upon starting

"Let Watch ABC access your location" is the first question which pops up. Program freezes and doesn't allow you to answer yes or no. Totally unfunctioning app. (Windows 10)

The Player is Crude

Finding the program you'd like to see takes too many actions to get to. The app needs, but does not have, a way for the user to save their most frequently watched programs. Other things I didn't like: --Can't fast forward using the progress bar --Sometimes the player freezes during the Ads that aren't displayed; can't restart app and go back to where you've left off. Player forces you to start at the beginning again. just sits there as if it were loading the video (whirling dots) Very frustrating. When the player does play, it seems to display well. Sound is fine too.

Broken With Windows 10

The app needs to be updated for Windows 10. Specifically, clicking on the "Confirm Location" button freezes the app. If you manually grant location permission through Windows Settings, it still doesn't work.

Works well. You only need a subscription for the NEWEST episodes. Remember this is an On-Demand service, something that your FREE OTA service doesn't (and can't) provide. Stop your complaining and download the app. Older episodes don't require log-in verification.
