Same ads too many times 3/5
By W dub
Why do all the ads have to play over and over again
Too many Ads! 1/5
By Abc show fan
5 ads every few minutes is just way too many! A competitor network allows a choice of an interactive ad once and then no ads for the rest of the program. They should also let you resume where you left off an episode or at least have windows to scan through until you find the point you left off. Other apps do this. Abc is the worst of all of the network apps and seems to be the most difficult to start up as well.
No Suddenlink? 1/5
This app no longer links to my Suddenlink TV provider. What happened?
Not great 1/5
This app has issues we can not watch a show without having to get into the app 30 times peg episode is keeps booting you out

Frustrated without cable service 5/5
By Katt ftw
My family had to evacuate for Hurricane Irma, we came back as soon as it was safe. We got power back after4 days but we still don't have cable/internet. I have been able to catch up on General Hospital using my cell phone and this ABC app! Thank you! I'm also watching other shows waiting for cable to come back on.
Live streaming and sound 2/5
The sound during playback using the app reduces to zero unless I pause playback and restart.
I travel a lot through the week to areas where no live stream is "available". I don't understand why the Internet isn't available. Do you, or do you not, broadcast for free (via antenna)? If I have Internet access, why can't I pick up a free broadcast? I gave you a 3 because I like your content. How hard can the live stream be? How much does it actually cost you to do?
After huracan Irma I don't have Xfinity so this app became my Tv , works pretty good.
Always closes. You have to totally close it to even switch shows. Time to give up on my shows on abc. Very frustrating.
Too many 2/5
Too many commercials it's ridiculous
I pay for cable, and it still doesn't work. 1/5
No matter the football game, it always says, "This service is not available in your area." It goes on to say that they are working on making the service available in more areas. ...I live in Denver! I'm not out in the sticks somewhere! I also highly doubt they are, "working on having the service available in my area." I'll believe it when I see it. Pun. Intended.
You are cavemen! 1/5
By Ryan in WA
How in the world, in this day and age, are you so behind the times that you don't have live streaming in all areas? Not even signing in with Comcast. Pathetic!
Unusable - Deserves 0 Stars 1/5
Can't even log onto app to watch TV. Thanks ABC. Live streaming is terrible (when it even works) but who would know since it can't even log you on using the cable service you pay for. Logged me out of directv and won't accept my password, and now won't even let me log onto xfinity account. Really great stuff ABC 👌🏼 thanks for nothing!
Fix Picture When Casting Video 1/5
By R. leFay
Technical support needs to fix the major problem with the picture when you cast video to your tv. I don't know about everyone else, but my picture is fizzy when I cast to my tv. Other apps have great picture quality. What is the deal ABC? I love that I can watch all the shows you have, but the picture stinks!
Easy to use 5/5
By Sint Denijs Westrem
Love the way I can watch my favorite ABC shows on my tablet.
It used to work and now it doesn't! What gives?
Stupid app 1/5
This app is stupid. With this app, the latest programs you can watch on tv for free; you have to have a cable provider. Why don't they have the latest shows for free?
The commercials... too many 3/5
I get having to have advertisers for a free app, but OMG does it have to be so many (6)? It's almost impossible to binge watch anything!
Working out with ABC 5/5
By KG of MI
Love to be watching my ABC shows using my mobile device while at the Gym!!
Completely Ridiculous 1/5
This has been a free station my entire life. Even if you have a cable provider it doesn't work. I don't know how the cable companies monopolized this service. Advertisers pay for this free station for us. Not only for entertainment people have relied on stations such as this one for emergency service announcements and news that may be vital to the survival of many communities. I'll happily go back to my rabbit ears with its one time cost and think very unpleasant thoughts of this ignorant monopoly. Have a good day!!!
Why doesn't this app work with SmartCast??? 1/5
No good on SmartCast please help!
Doesn't work 1/5
By Cecil Raikes
I pay hundreds of dollars for cable and can't stream to my iPhone
Gotta sign in to cable provider.. while i can watch it on my tv with an antenna freely, i have to have a cable service in order to watch on my phone. And i have to share my location, I can't just type a zip code, have to be shared, and when you do, it says your area doesn't have live streaming service. So you get nothing from me, you greedy so called news media. Deleted
No live streaming, even when logged into direct tv account, just continual "something went went wrong" messages. Junk.
Great app 4/5
This app is so simple and easy to use but they should have all seasons of everyone of there tv shows.
Cable companies WIN again 1/5
So you updated the app for AppleTV's new TV service, but you're still going to make people sign in to their cable TV provider to watch your FREE TV service that is broadcast over the air... so terrible. Your stations are supposed to be free. They always have been. That's why you have advertisers. Paying for cable doesn't change that either. In fact, it ADDS more advertisements. If you're reading this and you have cable, you are getting ROYALLY screwed over. CUT THE CORD! The more people who do it the quicker we get rid of the middle man! Cut your cord people! Stop paying utterly ridiculous cable prices.
ABC / Disney doesn't care what their customers want. They care about MONEY. People do not want to pay for TV. The baby boomer generation will cease soon and all cable company subscriptions will diminish. In addition, as soon as sports networks decide to cut ties with the cable company, there will be no more of this nonsense signing in to a cable provider to view content. I hope Fox does it first so ESPN (Disney/ABC) is forced into it. It will be a happy day for all!
ABC, get out of bed with the cable companies. They are the newspaper of this generation (going... going.... GONE)
For now, I'll just sit back and enjoy the TENS OF THOUSANDS of negative reviews. ;)
App crashes 1/5
Recently playback of videos is spotty. Lags during playing or will crash. Many times I cannot even connect. An error will pop up saying "oops-try later". Good content, but difficult for app to deliver it!
Worse than watching on live tv 1/5
This app malfunctions almost every time I use it. You can't watch your shows without something going wrong and if you do get it to work then the ads malfunction and you're stuck in a never ending loop of ads. At least NBC can make a working app.
Not playing shows and I have my cable provider information in the system 1/5
My app won't play anything it says try again something went wrong no matter what I click and I have perfect wifi and good service
Way too many redundant commercials 1/5
By Scooby and daphne
app floods you with same commercials throughout the show
Too Many Ads 2/5
By Joy Parham
I enjoy being able to catch up on my favorite shows via my phone but the increase in ads really makes it frustrating as there should be a way you can watch a show without all the ads.
Great App! 4/5
Love ALL the shows and episodes but the ads are so long but it's understandable because of the episode lengths. And keeps not loading the show so I have to delete the app and re-download and play the episode again. But other than that I have so many so shows to add to my must watch list!
Too mAny commercials.. and too long for comercial beaks 3/5
Comercial break is too long for the period of the show
Could be better 3/5
Takes too long for app to open, yes the splash is nice but I'm in hurry.
Too many commercials, biggest gripe is trying to go forward or backward in a video, where I have to watch more commercials.
Live TV not working 1/5
KTRH in Houston only streams for a short while then hangs up...in a commercial festival! I guess it's time to revert to the ever more popular antenna!
Fly like a buzzard ABC...in circles!
Worthless for live tv 1/5
First off you have to sign in with your cable provider, even though you could hook rabbit ears to a TV and watch for free. Second, live streaming is only supported in certain area of the country for some reason. This app is about 10 years behind where it should be.
Live stream 1/5
I can't get it to live stream period. It just something went wrong every time.. not happy customer
Can't live steam 1/5
This app is totally useless cannot live stream in my area
No live streaming in my area! Horrible! Why not? Others do! Deleting the app now.
Sign in to cable provider for 'free live tv' 1/5
What a joke. I can watch it for free with a TV antenna but I can't watch it free on your app? Better catch on folks- times are a changin'
The best 5/5
Always works never a problem
WAY TOO MANY ADS!!!! If there wasn't so many commercials it would be way better.
Can you guys make the app compatible with Chromecast TVs? MTV, USA and many others are compatible please fix!!
36 Minutes Of Advertising 1/5
The amount of ads in an hour long episode is obscene! I picked the interactive ad option to get less interruptions but it didn't work. There are 12 dots in an episode, each containing 6 ads at 30 seconds each... do the math! That's 36 minutes of JUST ads. That is DISGUSTING. Not to mention you see the SAME ads 50 times in a row. It's more ads than the actual show that you see. Network TV is failing & they wonder why Netflix is taking over. People HATE ads but this app literally shoves them down your throat. I would gladly pay for this app for it to be ad free. It's agonizing. At least put all the ads at the beginning or all at the end. I caught up on my show but then I deleted the app because it's just not worth it. Wish I could give negative stars.
Not enough free stuff 3/5
Not enough free stuff I am willing to watch 6 comerciales !
By Mad chick m2235
Way 2 many commercials
10% good 90% BAD! 1/5
I've been watching abc without cable for thirty years so I'm on the 5th episode of Bachelor in Paradise and this B##@@@D asks for a password. Smart. Let's put a Cable password in a free tv channel that you watch WITHOUT cable. BAD BAD BAD. But as ZZ Top said "I've got to get paid" is what abc AND cable companies say. Screw people without cable. Let them suffer. "HELP THE RICH AND KILL THE POOR." TAKE THE PASSWORD OFF PLEASE AND I'LL GIVE IT FIVE STARS BUT YOUR NOT GOING TO DO THAT BECAUSE YOU ALL NEED MORE MONEY.
Always have an issue. Won't show for days or weeks due to some error.
