ABC has decided to block screen mirroring 1/5
Since praying to iOS 11 and latest ABC app, ABC has disabled screen mirroring. For months, I have relied on plugging my phone into my TV with an HDMI cable to watch my favorite shows. Now, I’m left with only the option of watching my shows on my 4-inch smartphone screen. What a jerk move, ABC. What a jerk move.
FREE WITH ANTENNA BUT STILL NEED A CABLE SUBSCRIPTION 1/5
By Victor Bird
There are a lot of things in today’s world I don’t understand and one of them is why I would need a cable subscription to sign into a network that’s free to watch with an antenna. Why, you might ask, would I want to watch on my device if I have an antenna? Many reason but logistics mainly. I’m sure the bottom line is money and control. Maybe they’re afraid I won’t watch their silly (many) commercials. I won’t watch them using an antenna either so no loss for either of us. I remember (yes, I’m old enough) when cable TV was first mentioned it was going to eliminate commercials. That was why we were going to pay to watch TV. Just like most everything else, once they get a taste of profits it’s no holds barred!
App works great what’s all the negativity for? 5/5
All honesty there is nothing wrong with this app, it works well and fits all necessary needs. The fact that your app is slow because you downloaded IOS 11 on an iPhone 5, which is not necessarily the best platform for IOS 11 since it is an older generation of iPhone, that shouldn’t and doesn’t go with the app. I have this app on all my devices (ranging from iPhone 4 to iPhone 8+) and they work perfectly you just have to know what your phone can handle based on its age. And for the negativity towards the ads..get over it. It’s just a couple of ads you can exit the show when they come on right before credits it’s not like it doesn’t allow you too. Ads are on pretty much any tv platform (other then like Netflix and those things). And for signing in with your provider...is it really that hard to sign in with what tv provider you have like come on you shouldn’t bash on the app just cause you have to sign in with your tv provider for the latest episode. That’s stupid.
Not opening 4/5
I love it, I love it! But currently it’s not letting open it I open it and it says Opps try again later and I tried it a couple hours later and it’s still not working. Help?
Parents Beware 1/5
This app shows 6 commercials at a time on kids shows. The commercials contain adult content such as commercials for drugs where they talk about side effects including death.
What’s downright unforgivable is how often these long cycles of commercials occur. Your child will spend just as much time watching commercials as they will watching the show.
We are watching a Charlie Brown thanksgiving and commercials come on so often and for so long it’s almost unwatchable.
ABC, if you’re reading this, tone it down on the kid shows. Don’t say you have no control over what ad’s or, what frequency the ad’s play. If you don’t have a way to control this, put one in.
ABC App 5/5
By Vinni Corleone
Of all the streaming apps I use this one works the best. It’s almost completely seamless. Great job ABC tech crew!
I love ABC A LOT YOU CAN WATCH IT ANYWHERE AND ANYTIME IT IS LITERALLY FLAWLESS 😃😃😃😃😃😁😀😁😅😃😁😀😁
Remove all the ads please !! 4/5
Man, I like the app and all but there are so many ads while watching the episodes please only have like two ads
Dancing with the starts. 5/5
It is an awesome show.
Thank you for having this type of entertainment Shows. Good for all ages. 👍
Add ads ads 1/5
The app runs fine on my iPhone 5/iOs 7. No crashing but the same 4 ads play ad nauseum every few minutes. Should you use the slider to go back or forward in the episide, the whole sequence of 4 ads immediately kick in again. This heavy handed approach feels punitive and only serves to make me tune out the sponsor. Update: now it's FIVE and SIX ads for every few minutes of show time with no way to go back or forward without replaying all the ads. This on top of the insult of having to download your stupid app on top of my Xfinity app taking up more precious room on my ipad. Update: DELETED APP, waste of time.
Love it 5/5
No problems here!
Great access! 5/5
Thanks for keeping it free!
Error Message with TV Provider 1/5
By Crys Vela
Horrible won’t accept my sign in with Direct TV! Even after resetting multiple times still tells me my info is not correct!!!
Login does not Work 1/5
Just started having problems on 11/17. Supposedly my login had expired and needed my password again. According to App my password does not match their records and I should contact AT&T operator. Password is correct and I was able to watch my show on the DIRECTTV app. This app has had too many problems for a long Time now.
iPhone X compatibility 1/5
So I received my iPhone X last night. I log onto the abc app this morning to watch The Good Doctor on my new phone. The app keeps force closing every time
I tap to watch an episode. So I’m wondering if the app is not yet compatible with the iPhone X. This show is pretty much the reason why I have this app, but I guess I’ll delete it and wait to watch it on my DVR once I get home. #yallgottadobetter
Trouble getting on 4/5
Once I have access the programming is good (few too many ads) but usually takes several tries before content loads. Says I’m partially authorized, whatever that means. Have to close and go back. Pretty annoying
Irritated because I need TGIT 1/5
For a week now, I only get an Oops message and it asks me to retry. I have cleared cache, powered down, deleted the app and it won’t work. I have plenty of storage space and unlimited data. Why?!
Takes a. While 5/5
It takes a while to figure out, but when out of town I've grown fond of the app. I'm a Uverse customer and have had no problems finding and watching the latest episodes of my shows. Don't change a thing! It's the upgrades that always mess up a good thing.
wyd i need to watch amas 1/5
okay so apparently i can't watch my bois bts live on the amas tonight bc my city isn't cOVERED bY aBC lOCATIoN wISE?? fix this now before you get other mad armys from my state
k thanks bye
Awesome greys anatomy 4/5
It has good shows like greys anatomy and they are all free as long as you have a tv subscription
Cannot connect with TV doc 1/5
Very disappointed that I am unable to watch tv through my iPad with tv doc connector. I have reached out to apple went through hard resets and they are sure it is the abc app. Continually getting error message that says opps...please turn off screen mirroring to resume this video. ABC please put out an update that will fix this issue.
Won’t let me use my account.
Screen Mirroring Feature Block 1/5
Prior to the past 2 most recent updates I could mirror the app to stream through my TV using my Apple USB adapter, now when I’ve tried to watch/stream what is playing on my phone I get an error stating to turn off recording/screen mirroring to watch episodes. Not happy at all.
They are soooooooooooo annoying. Why so many ? Can't you do it like Hulu and watch it in the beginning or just once in the middle ?
Sound Issues 1/5
Every time I play on my Roku device it hits a commercial and midway through the sounds cuts out. To get through you need to FF/REW and when you attempt to do that it blows through the point where you would like to be. Come on ABC your better than that.
The Best 5/5
I absolutely love this !! Thank you
Very disappointed 1/5
The orher apps
Like CBS you don’t have to have cable to watch
Shame on ABC
ABC App Review 5/5
By Mama Clayton
I like watching my stories on the app. They show very clearly and w/o a lot of buffering.
App was great.... now not so much 1/5
I was able to stream from my phone to my tv through an hdmi cable but now it won’t play. It tells me to turn off mirroring. Very frustrating.
By PvsZ mega fan
I find it frustrating that a free show like The Chew is blocked from being viewed on abc website and in app. it’s free over the air yet oh no if you’re not home to watch it because you’re at work don’t bother trying to watch it anywhere unless you have a cable provider. Even videos others post on YouTube are being removed. Free shows should be just that... FREE :( Such a disappointment.
Login issues 1/5
Unable to login with my provider. So irritating!
Simple change not simple 4/5
I need to change the cable provider on the app and abc goes automatically to my old provider. It won’t let me switch providers and there’s nothing on the app to help.
To many commercial breaks
Can't cast to TV 3/5
We have a Vizio TV and this app doesn't allow you to cast to the TV.
TV Provider login does not work 1/5
Please fix the issue preventing me from logging in with my TV provider. TDS has no idea this is occurring and Apple doesn’t know how to fix it either, so therefore it is a you problem. Please fix this ABC!
Used to work 1/5
By Help 04
Cannot dock to TV! Error message pops up to turn off screen monitoring. Very disappointed. My favorite network!
Not free and don’t always work! 2/5
You have to subscribe to watch current episodes and they don’t always play. Lots of error messages.
Do NOT bother to download app 1/5
ABC has alienated iPhone users once again by disallowing mirroring. Before this update, there was no problem and anyone could watch. It also is conniving to do this before the end of the season. Guess that was supposed to help them drum up dollars by leaving iPhone customers hanging. Sorry ABC no one’s paying for free over the air tv broadcast. Bring back dock mirroring for Apple viewers. If not, millions of iPhone watchers will unanimously be pressing delete. Yes, that’s “millions!”
I’m not big on rating apps but i love this app. Everything is there is great timing and there is always sneak peeks. I LOVE IT!!!!
Love ABC, just not the app 1/5
Too many commercials and the app keeps crashing.
This is the only one of all the network video apps to not have Live TV availability in central IL.
Something went wrong 1/5
Every couple of times I use this app, I have to delete it then reinstall it to continue using it. It will display a message the says “something went wrong” I click try again and the message just keeps displaying.
Poor App 1/5
This app hasn’t worked for me for months. I update it, reinstall it. Nothing!!!!
Painful on AppleTV 2/5
Watching the evening news is fine, but anything else, I spend more time waiting for things to buffer, when my internet connection is fine. I tried to watch the CMA’s and even the commercials took 2 minutes to buffer. This update gets two stars because I can watch David Muir without an issue.
Are the big 3 networks pushing us to cut all ties we broadcast channels?! NBC is giving me the same issues.
Not user friendly 1/5
Takes forever to find the shows I want to watch. What about a search feature? Why do I have to make five clicks to find the show and episode I want.
App not working on iphone 6s 1/5
When i opened the app
“Oops try agin message is seen”
Will not dock to tv after last update 1/5
Good App but you screwed it up on last update now is worthless when you plug hdmi cord into phone it says turn off mirror or turn off screen recording
Crashes constantly 1/5
Constantly crashing during commercials
