ABC: Stream TV Shows & Series Positive Reviews
Ditto all the bad reviewsThe ABC app just stopped working on my iPhone 8! I’ve had it for years and now I haven’t been able to open it in weeks. Why???? I have a Directv account and should be able to use it. I’m super frustrated. Only giving it 1 star because I want to submit a complaint. The app tries to open for a couple seconds and then immediately shuts down. I have the latest version on my phone. Please fix this pronto.
I ditto all the bad reviews listed. I too just checked back to see if ABC went back to their original terms, but discovered even more bad reviews. I feel that ABC doesn't care if people use this app. I am a Directv subscriber and used the app to catch up on shows I missed a portion of because local news interrupted a show because of televising weather conditions. It was nice to know I didn't have to miss out. Well now, I'm missing out. Oh well. I'm trying to watch more shows on channels other than ABC. Hard for me to support ABC at all at this point. I had to give it 1 star just to submit the review, but I don't think you deserve any stars. 0 stars..Version: 10.11.0
Modern Show AmbianceWhat can I say about ABC it’s a great app that helps the viewer view his taste in what makes it special and. What makes it special is the ambiance that glows when a new viewer is intrigued by the moment it shines every week for new episodes. Like Grey's Anatomy that I love watching and I just love how they celebrate their surgeries with honor, dedication and sense of humble gratitude within their skills, specialities, and surgical abundance they are willing to sacrifice their lives for the most willing patient that shares a prehistory on their life. And that in a way is what makes ABC special just like the surgeries in Grey’s Anatomy that they each celebrate their work and know they are special because their human cos it doesn’t matter how different we are what matters is the love we give each other of what ABC does and. I have this certain ability to give a particular motto for certain companies and for the ABC company is Amazing, Bold and Caring on why that ABC network is a beautiful thing ever invented and I’m glad we have it. Thank You..Version: 10.22.0
Best app of the traditional tv networksI prefer paying for ad-free content. That said, when none of my paid subscription services carry a specific older show that I want to binge on, I cross my fingers that it’s an ABC show. This app doesn’t mess around by withholding specific episodes or seasons for cable subscribers in the way that NBC or AMC and other networks do. You don’t have to have a cable login and you can watch any & all of the shows you want, suffering through just as many ads as would appear on over the air broadcasts. No problems syncing my position across the iPhone app and Apple TV. If I let a show run and leave the room, when I come back and rewind I don’t have to sit through the same commercials again (another reviewer had the opposite experience, so the developers may have recently fixed this)..Version: 10.1.0
Please fix the rewind buttonThis is a good app. It doesn’t make you sign into a tv account (so far) or have you pay to watch an episode, it just has commercials. Some things are locked but whatever. My biggest issue with this app so far is that multiple times now, I’ll press the 10 second rewind button that they have at the bottom to bring me back to a part that I missed or didn’t hear and it will jump me all the way back to before the previous commercial break! This wouldn’t be bad if it would let me then choose where I’d like to go but it doesn’t. It makes me watch the whole commercial break over again. Not like one or two quick commercials but the WHOLE break over again. If the commercial break was 6 15second commercials you’re going to be watching 6 15second commercials again just because you missed what Diane sawyer said… extremely annoying and would really enjoy and use this app if this was fixed. Otherwise it seems to cause more headaches than it’s worth..Version: 10.24.0
Editing now that it works for meOkay, so previously I wrote a low-rating review because the app was giving me an "Oops..." error message whenever I tried to play anything. I don't know what happened - maybe there was an update or maybe episodes just had to be a certain number of weeks old for me to play them - but it works now and I have no problem with it. Except that the "Oops..." message was nondescript and confusing. It would be nice if the message would either indicate what was wrong (connection error, login error etc.) or direct the user to contact support. As it was, I was left frustrated and unsure of what to do. (I've had bad experiences with various support teams [not ABC] over the years and so my first thought is not to contact them unless it's directly suggested to me.) But for now, it seems to work great and I have no significant complaints. [EDIT] Eeeeexcept that it just randomly crashed in mid-video. I can deal with it, but the developers might want to be aware of the issue..Version: 6.3.2
More Providers, More AffiliatesI think this is an awesome app, however, I do not understand why you cannot stream more affiliates of your network, or even allow all TV providers to allow people to stream ABC online at no additional cost!! When I want to watch something live on your network away from my home WiFi, I have to pay more money on ANOTHER streaming service to watch. For instance, if I want to watch Dancing with the Stars LIVE online away from home, I have to pay more money for ANOTHER online streaming service! It would literally save more money for the TV customers if you could reach agreements with Hearst Television (besides the one that you have now regarding DirecTV customers) and all of the other owners of your other affiliates, besides the eight that you already own. I think it will help your app and website improve if you do so. Other than that, I think this app is awesome!!.Version: 6.5.0
ABCI enjoy ABC. I love General Hospital. It is by far my favorite tv show. I watch it everyday and also record it and watch it again. However, what I really do not appreciate is every time there is news of any kind, they preempt my favorite show, General Hospital. It is at the worse afternoon time for this to happen. The North Carolina Governor held a Covid-19 update almost everyday for a year, and it was always on at 2:00. I was sorry people were sick, but I live in South Carolina, not North Carolina. Also, I feel an update lasting 45 minutes everyday was and is just not necessary. Thank you for your consideration of this matter..Version: 10.13.0
The good and the bad….Okay SO the reason for three stars is because it doesn’t offer PiP, Picture in Picture on my iPhone so I can watch the bachelorette LIVE and have the little screen of it in front of whatever app I’m using. I’m a delivery driver and use my phone apps to work, so it would be absolutely wonderful to have PiP while watching the bachelorette LIVE. It’s extremely annoying to have to close out and go back and forth between my work apps to try and watch it. I know they can integrate this feature into their app.
Another problem is that it won’t work on my little chrome book. I can watch my sling tv on it with no problem. And if it would work on my chrome book then i wouldn’t need to watch it on my iPhone through PiP. But unfortunately I can’t do either. So frustrating!
Now for the good…it plays in high definition and is free just as long as you create an account and sign in with your internet or cable provider. We have Spectrum for our internet so I use that to login so I can watch my show live.
It definitely deserves three stars because I can watch my show while I work even though it’s extremely annoying due to these issues above..Version: 10.19.0
Unstable/unreliable. Works doesn’t work.The app will work fine for the most part for days, or weeks, even months, but then it just starts acting up. Very glitchy sometimes. A lot of UI/ control issues. Most recent issue is when I FF/skip it will go into hyper FF mode with strange audio and not respond and/or then suddenly start over at beginning so I have to rewatch all commercials. Another issue is that it will then won’t show up in Apple TV + Up Next, or keep showing an episode even though it was finished or marked watched, and even again and again. Then there’s no way to remove watched episodes from the ABC app Continue Watching list. New episodes not showing up. App will not open sometimes or close. And on and on..Version: 10.18.0
App definitely has some bugsI love being able to watch ABC shows on the go, but every time I use the app I have some sort of problem. Sometimes it being the show not loading or being in poor quality, even though I have strong connection and other times there are problems the ads. This is the BIGGEST problem. Most of the time when there are ads, when the show comes back it is already halfway into the next segment meaning I’m missing a good chunk of content. Then when it try to rewind it takes me back to the beginning of the PREVIOUS segment and won’t let me go forward AT ALL. It gets really annoying because the only way to get around this is to restart the app and then watch all the ads again :) it’s just wonderful.Version: 6.8.0
Great app, but needs an update.This app is well designed, easy to use, and has been no problem for me in the past. However, with my upgrade to the iPhone X, It has become an issue that this app hasn’t had an update in a bit. On the iPhone X, there is a gesture that replaces the home button which involves swiping up from the bottom of the screen. In many apps, there is a small white bar on the bottom of the screen that indicates where to swipe from. However, in games or apps involving watching videos of any kind, this bar is hidden, so as not to be distracting. Unfortunately, this app does not hide the white bar at the bottom of the screen while a video is being watched, and it is distracting and intrusive. I hope it will be updated soon..Version: 5.1.3
Why the need to update when it's working fine?I have an iPad2 and just got a message that I need to update the app. I won't be able to access the app anymore because it won't update any further. Why can't we have the choice to update or not? It's been working fine until it needed this update. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who believes that it is not necessary to trash our older generation devices when they still work. We have to take care of our environment! C'mon ... I'm sure you have a tech genius out there who can make this happen. Give us that choice to update or not. Sadly, I guess no more ABC for me..Version: 6.7.1
ABCHow about this FYI, because of my Mom, when we (my family and I) came to this country in 1973. They were basically 3 channels! ABC, NBC and CBS. My mother picked channel 7 abc, why!
Ryan’s hope, all my children, one life to live and
Of course General Hospital. Then the news, with Bill Butell, Storm Field (my Mom loved watching the weather) and also! She loved Peter Jennings, and Barbara Walters. So, after I left home as an adult, I have been watching ABC channel 7, for the last 48 years. I trust it. Thank you so much. PS , I am pretty sure, that I will be watching ABC channel 7 for the next 48 years..Version: 10.16.0
App keeps deleting tv provider info and not accepting when I re-enterWhen this app works, it’s great, but when it doesn’t, it’s frustrating. The app frequently forgets the login information for my tv provider and asks me to re-enter it, but then spends minutes spinning its wheels and eventually freezing. I have to restart the app and try again and it is currently still not working. I’ve checked and my iPad has the tv provider data in place in settings and says ABC app is using it. But the app says I have no tv provider info. I’ve double checked the login information and made sure the tv provider website isn’t down. If this piece worked consistently, this would be a 4 or 5 star rating..Version: 5.3.0
BEST @@@TV app ever!!!2019 - well here we are and I still prefer to watch these shows over other network show but STILL can’t watch them live. Put in a ticket and all I get is we are not in your area. What? 😳🤨🙄. It’s getting close to 10 yrs now and I can watch So many others...why is that but not ABC live “In my area”?
The ABC app is the very first TV app that I down loaded and it has not let me down yet...it's been close to 6 years now. I am able to wear my wireless Beats headset and listen while cooking cleaning and moving about the house. More important if I miss a show I can watch it the next day. I am so in love with this app!!!!😍
Thanks for doing a great job guys.Version: 6.5.1
Stop the changesEvery time they change the app I have more issues. Like at the end of a program it gets small so it can start you on another program that probably you don’t want to watch! Also if you watch at work and have small bits of time to log on, it doesn’t keep your place as before you have to go back into the app again. Also if you back up the program you get the same 6 commercials you just recently saw. I do like the back 10 sec button though to give some positive feedback. Thanks for listening!.Version: 6.3.1
What’s happening?!I gave a three star because I like the shows available to watch. I have accessed The Good Doctor and there were some episodes that were locked. I gave my access info to my cable and it unlocked them. However when I click on an episode that was previously locked it says there’s an error and try again. I have tried multiple times and it still won’t give me access. I have been able to watch them at the gym but not at home. It doesn’t give an option for troubleshooting the problem either. If any help can be given that would be great. Once I’m able to watch all of the episodes I’ll change my rating to a five star..Version: 5.2.0
App for commercial loversIf you have loads of free time and love commercials this app is for you! If you stop watching a show you must watch your five commercials to restart. However you must move the episode forward as it does not remember the location you stopped at. Each time you slowly move it forward... you guessed it five more commercials. You can usually find your place after 25 to fourth commercials. This is an app for retired people. To bad most of those don't do streaming. A mostly irrelevant app. Surprised the creators haven't been promoted to government jobs..Version: 5.1.4
Too many adsLove the app, but 6 ads in a row play several times throughout the show. No way to skip them or fast forward. I would be more inclined to listen to the ads if only 1-3 and would run less often! Also, the ads finish, the show starts back...but in 2 secs, the series of ads start again! So I’m getting up to 12 ads back to back. This happens 4-6 times throughout the show. This part could be my iPhone, but I have deleted the app and re-downloaded. Still no change!!!! PLEASE fix this issue!.Version: 6.8.0
TV Provider Issue - resolved quickly!Everytime I had tried to watch something it wanted me to link to my provider and it would always time out and says it can’t. I had no problems on any other device except my phone.
They contacted me right away and had me do the following and it worked! Go into your device settings > Locate the ABC app > Turn off "Allow app access to device TV provider". The next time you enter the app, you may be asked to "Allow app access to device TV provider", press CANCEL or DON'T ALLOW..Version: 7.2.0
Way too many ads. Still.Don’t see my earlier review and am closing out of ABC once again due to ENDLESS ads. (Don’t use the rewind option—you will have to sit through 5,6, or 7 ads for your few-second rewind!)This is awful.
I’m headed back to CBS, which has a good app & programming, and doesn’t cram endless unwanted advertising down your throat, turning a one hour show into a nightmare tour.
Shame on ABC. This practice violates every rule of caring about customers and nullifies any good technical qualities the app may have. It’s just too much work to watch anything..Version: 10.1.0
Mostly goodI use Apple's TV app mostly, so I don't use many of the features of the ABC app. However, I've noticed a couple of annoying issues at the end of an episode.
First issue: don't put an ad break right before the credits. I can tolerate the ads, but watching two minutes of them just to see a few credits and a vanity card is pretty annoying.
Second issue: I hate it when the end of the show gets shoved into the corner, especially when I can't get it back to full screen. Let me see the end of the show I'm watching before you start pushing another one on me!.Version: 5.1.2
Good and badI find the app relatively easy to navigate. While this might seem to be a given, the competing networks don’t seem to always manage this. And when it works, it’s fairly seamless BUT 1) What is the point of the black bar across the top??? Why cut off the top of people’s heads? And it serves no useful purpose. 2) And fix the feeds, especially for the local segments. On a regular basis, I get nothing on the live stream. Sometimes for hours, occasionally for a couple days.
On the other other hand, the breadth is quite good. Plus 1 star if they ditch the black bar, and 2 more for fixing the program feeds..Version: 10.11.0
