Broken - endless loading 1/5
The app hangs & breaks trying to load content. Almost completely unusable. Very poor quality compared to all other TV network mobile apps. Either ABC outsourced to a bad development team or their own iOS development team is too inexperienced to produce a market-worthy product.
Review ABC ap 3/5
Keeps kicking out after commercials before show is over. Like having lots of shows to choose from.
HORRIBLE AND CRASHES 1/5
The mist commercials of all the tv apps. Crashes in the middle if commercial or at the last commercial do I have to start all over again with stupid ads! It's now crashed 25 times just trying to watch one episode of a show. RIDICULOUS!
Keeps on crashing! 3/5
I was barely a minute into an episode and it already crashed 3 times, very disappointed and annoyed
It keeps crashing 1/5
Every time I try to watch something it always crashes on the last commercial and also there is way to much commercials
By Mr. Ommm
Great app! Convenient and shows are current, to legacy.
My Cable Provider Gone 1/5
Just tried to log in to binge watch some episodes and can't -- my cable provider Verizon Fios is no longer listed!! Did something go wrong during an update!! Very disappointed!!
Tv provider 1/5
You want me to log I to my tv provider, but Comcast or Xfinity are not even listed. And yes I tried searching for it, still not a choice. It's not like Xfinity is uncommon. So annoyed!
Where did my Cable Provider go???? 1/5
Where did Comcast/Xfinity go??? It was there a couple days ago???
What a disaster 1/5
By This app. Seriously.
Besides the million ads that would make me rate it one star, today when it made me log into my cable provider (which it seems to do every day now), my provider wasn't on the list. Xfinity. One of the biggest providers. Why I'm not watching my show on the Xfinity app instead of this ridiculously horrible app, I will never know. 🙄
Where is my cable provider 1/5
I subscribe to cox communication which carries ABC so why isn't it listed under providers? It was the the lying I used the app.
Too many commercials 1/5
This app always, ALWAYS "crashes" after the 6th commercial, especially when watching with Chromecast. So then if I decide I want to make myself miserable and continue attempting to use this app, I have to sit through the same 6 commercials at least one more time before watching a few minutes of show- and then the cycle starts again. 1st world problem for sure, but dude, I'm sitting through the same commercials every commercial break, please fix this so I don't have to watch them any more than I have to.
Oh. My. FUDGE COVERED CAKEBALLS!!!!!!!! 1/5
By Hawaii lover
That's all I can think just trying to make it through ONE bachelorette episode, mixed with a few other choice words.
1 star is not even remotely accurate. Try -37 stars. Make -725.
The app keeps crashing every commercial break. When I open it back up, it goes "OOPS!" at me and won't load. I'm just like, "Oops, what?? Ya home-wrecker!!" 😤
The only way to fix it and continue watching?
Delete the app, re-load, re-sign in and start the whole process again.
IMMA BOUT TO LOSE MY SANITY 🌪⛈☄️💥
Not only are there so many commercial breaks, there are so many commercials for them.
AND THOSE COMMERCIALS ARE LONG, LEMME TELL YOU.
Why? I have questions for you.
Why does an app with so much potential WORK LIKE A TWO YEAR OLD TRYING TO DRIVE A CAR.
Just do your techy job and fix the thing, someone!!! Other tv apps work fine, why can't this one?? You hold so many shows hostage ITS THE LEAST YOU COULD DO, PLEASE IM BEGGING 😭
NEW WAY TO SEE YOUR FAVORITE SHOWA 5/5
Finally a way to watch your favorite shows on the go and at your own time. I enjoy using this.
Not bad 3/5
Besides the fact I don't get to watch love t.v. But don't know if that has to do with charter and for some reason it's not keeping up to date episodes of the view but finally I don't have to keep signing into my account It finally keeps me signed in other than that casting is great no pausing picture is very clear so lil minor things that need to be dealt with... I enjoy it Thank you
Great app 5/5
By Traveling Fox
it's gr8 5/5
i truly love it
too many commercials
Lots of great shows 3/5
Way, way, way too many commercials... there's a commercial every 3 minutes!
Watching throwback on abc app 5/5
By Traveller Joan
Really enjoying the easy access and all the shows I've been missing
So useful! So many good shows! 5/5
I use the ABC app all the time. It's great for binging even when I travel. I keep up with new shows like Designated Survivor, American Housewife, Scandal and General Hospital. And I'm planning on checking out older shows I heard good buzz about like Dirty Sexy Money.
wayyyyy to many commercials.
The app was great until it started asking me to sign in each and every time I want to watch it. This is supposed to be a free channel. Why do I have to repeatedly sign in to watch?
It's great 5/5
By Emily dark 81
But the commercials are super annoying
Very glitchy 1/5
User functionality is awful and you can't skip to different parts of episodes without issues.
Missing episodes 1/5
Where is Bachelorette ep.7?!?! It aired 7/3 so why isn't it posted for viewing?!?!
Improved but not user friendly 3/5
The app has fixed a lot of the glitches but the format means lots of scrolling without ease of getting to the programs that other apps seem to have.
Can't turn off close captioning 2/5
I can't turn off closed captioning. Pressing the icon does nothing and there's nothing in Settings. Please fix. It's unusable now.
FIX IT!!!!!! 1/5
Ok so I use to truly love this app, but lately it's been REALLY getting me mad. I get it the commercial isn't something that can be removed, since the app is completely free, and that's one of the ways you guys make money. But to the point when you're watching way more commercial than the actual shows that's just ridiculous,and let's not forget annoying. That's not even the worst part, its when the app decide to crash on the very LAST commercial. Which means I have to sit through six or five more commercial AGAIN, and sometimes quite a few more commercial since the app crashes on repeat. But sometimes
It's not even worth it anymore. So please fix it, and be the app that I use to love so much.
Too many "limited" commercials 1/5
The commercials go on and on. The same ones over and over. This is a great way to drive traffic to netflix or to encourage buying direct from iTunes. Seems like there was 5 minutes of commercials for each 2 minutes of content. I find myself disliking the companies that sponsored the show. For their sake and mine I will try to forget this ever happened. I also hate my cable company a little worse for aiding and abetting ABC.
I gave it another shot tonight. Every few minutes I'm forced to watch another six ads. No option to skip. The advertisers are wasting their money without a skip option. If it was something I'm interested in I would watch the whole ad. Once again I'm just too frustrated to watch the whole program. Back to netflix for me.
Live TV doesn't work 1/5
I'm in the Philadelphia viewing area. I have Xfinity TV and internet. I login into the app okay and can watch on demand and other stuff. As soon as I go to watch ABC Live TV, it says "Oops, currently there is a problem with our provider login service".
I call Xfinity, they say it's not their end. I contact ABC tech support and basically they're no help, they blame Xfinity. But the error says "OUR PROVIDER LOGIN SERVICE" so right there it is ABC's problem in the app.
Get this Live Tv straightened out and this app will easily be 4 or 5 star rating.
not good 1/5
lately doesn't save my login or what i have watched anymore, makes me watch 1000 commercials to find where i left off, plays sound from 2 different scenes at same time
Tired of reinstalling! 1/5
Needs to "re-authenticate" everyday. I don't know what exactly that means, but the only solution I've found is to uninstall and reinstall...EVERYDAY! It's a piece of crap but I really like to watch GH while getting ready for work. And I understand you have to show commercials, however, watching the same ones over and over gets old....I can recite them!
This app is useless 1/5
By Fed up with abc app
Abc constantly crashes then you have to go thru 60 million steps to get back to the show which OF Course plays ads with no issues never crashes thru the ads but when you go to watch again ads play two sometimes three times!
Why does abc constantly drop? And don't tell me to delete restart phone and download again
THAT FIXES NOTHING! It's quite frustrating !'
Been happening for months and never gets fixed.
ABC network TV 5/5
Best & largest selection of quality network shows. Leader of the pack & they don't want you to pay to watch their programs. Great news programs that let you catch up on events you may have missed. Keep it up. You are my favorite! 👏🏼
Won't Open Since Last Update 1/5
I've been using this app for years without a problem, but it's useless now. All it does is crash when I try to open it.:( Please fix it asap! Thank you.:)
Endless Commercials and Login Issues ALWAYS 1/5
I'm logged in so I am suppose to be able to watch locked shows, but it will not let me. It did for 2 weeks then all the sudden stopped even though I'm still logged in.
The commercials. So many! If I pause the show to check a text or email, it restarts itself and I have to watch 6 commercials every single time I go away from the app.
I am one more commercial away from deleting my app.
I just tried to finish watching a show I watched last night. Played 4 commercials (two exact same fios ones in a row) then played 5 ADDITIONAL commercials.
Great for me 5/5
By Martie Dartie
Watch Good morning America every morning. And catch up on missed shows.
Can't login with GCI 1/5
By Kevin & Joy
won't let me login with my particular cable provider (GCI). Says forbidden with a blank screen.
Deleting app 1/5
---- Last Man Standing.
Loved it before, now not so much. 4/5
I'm ready to stop using the app. Frustrating to have to constantly log in with my provider . What's that about?
ABC Hates Its Viewers 1/5
Generally difficult to navigate. Makes it impossible to fast-forward through commercials. I wouldn't mind the commercials so much, but there are generally six breaks per show and a 30 minute program has six breaks. And they're the same commercials again and again and again. In the same show. Across shows. The commercials are so annoying, I'll never buy these products.
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. ;)
Great app and it is wonderful that they lowered the amount of adds
Love it 5/5
Keep up the great work! This app does exactly what I need & more! Love it...
Live tv no more 1/5
Use to love this app to watch live tv on my iPad. My cable provider is available on this app however I can never get signed in to watch live anymore. iOS is up to date, internet speed ok, etc. I can get over all the ads (yes there are many!) but very disappointing. Don't waste your time on this app for live tv.
Too Many COMMERCIALS! 1/5
App is always crashing, slow to get back on track with a show, it repeats 12 more commercials when you try to find the area in show the app crashed in. Do not like new design.
To many commercials, and the same ones over and over again!
