You have to use your cable service's username and password to watch "live tv"?? Hey ABC, do I have to use my cable username to watch live tv broadcasts over the air? No, of course not. So why the heck would you make app users do that? Don't tie yourselves so closely to the cable companies. By trying to force people to subscribe to cable tv just to use an app to access shows that they already have access to, you have completely, 100% ensured that millions of people just like me will never use your app.
They take forever to have new episodes available to watch.. thought abc was a big network but it takes them longer than any other network to have new episodes available to watch. ..hey want a hint if you want people to like your shows they have to be able to watch them? Why take so dam long to put new episodes up anywhere not smart at all?
Hey abc. I don't have cable tv. I watch everything online. It's a joke that you need a cable provider to watch air tv. I hope whoever decision it was that made this choice gets fired and becomes homeless and has to watch air TV and you cry to your invisible fake God because you can't use this app cause you don't have cable tv. Thanks for being a great network and looking out for your customers. This app is a joke just like ABC's corporate morons.
Really, if the app could play the video without randomly muting it, or playing audio without the picture, this app would be significantly useful. But, both the mobile apps and website can't seem to handle playing even one full episode without losing either audio or video. Then, you have to close out of the app, reload and hopefully the app will let you pick up close to where you left off. I want to like this app, really I do. But I am so frustrated with it that it's impossible.
I like the shows on this station but the app has a defect that in the middle of viewing a show it cuts off with a message stating "you are viewing this outside of the US and the show is only available in the US" I am in flipping BROOKLYN this is ridiculous. I usually end up not using this app for a couple of months because I get so frustrated with having to constantly reload a show that I'm in the middle of watching
The quality of this app should be much better considering it comes from a major network. When trying to skip ahead in a show to pick up where you left off it does one of two things: 1. Repeatedly plays the same 6 ads and then starts from the beginning anyway, rather than where you dropped the pin. Or 2. Plays the same 6ads and plays where you dropped the pin but it's just a black screen and all you get is the sound. It's infuriating.
