Way too many commercials 1/5
Too many commercials
TV Provider required? 1/5
This requirement for streaming the latest episodes is keeping my family from purchasing this channel...CBS has an option of purchasing with or without commercial interruption...that my family loves and am gladly paying.
CBS has set a standard for Television viewing that does NOT require an already expensive TV provider. Remember with said tv providers allowing streaming of any channel through their apps...why would it be necessary to download a particular channels app?
ABC! Change your ways! Your missing a money making opportunity as well as new customers.
Love it 5/5
Love it. Easy to use and works great!
No live?! 2/5
Can someone please tell me why every time I go on live tv it says, “error code: live tv is not available on directv right now.” Ever since I first got the app it has been saying that it’s not available in my location, or it’s not available on directv at the moment. It’s absolutely ridiculous! I enjoy watching live tv and tweeting about it during commercial brakes, but it seems that this app won’t allow me to do that! Again, just looking for some justification on why the live tv is not working.
Live stream 2/5
It seem like every time my show is one that the live stream is not working. I have had to email them 5 times already because it keeps happening.
Too many commercials 5/5

Can’t watch same day shows 1/5
By Frustrated Antenna User
I hate that I can’t watch current episodes of anything unless I am subscribed to a pay tv service of some sort. Cable or satellite. I get my channel over the air using an outside antenna. So if I miss an episode of something I have to log in to see it. Once it is 4 or 5 days old it unlocks & I am able to see it. The CBS app is just the opposite. Much better app & I can watch current episodes without a subscription, not even for that app.
Can no longer have 1/5
Up until just a few days ago I had ABC on my iPad. Now I can't have the latest version. And I can't get the earlier version. IT people just tinker with stuff just to keep their jobs without regard to how they may be affection users. Forget ABC-TV because I prefer watching on my device!
Up to date 3/5
I do not know why the app does not allow up to date show viewing. It’s very frustrating.
I wish I could go back and watch older shows from the app.
Drives me nuts 1/5
Used to work fine. Now when I open it, it says I have to update it. Go to updates, and it says Open it. Open it and it says Update....I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling with no success in getting this cycle to end. Seems it wasn't that long ago I updated it. So, now I will watch NBC.
Keeps getting stuck before playing first ad 2/5
Amazon Fire Stick - Tried with two different shows and as soon as the first ad tries to load the app gets stuck. The ad doesn’t play and you can’t access the show at all. Reloading the episode picks up in the middle (well past even the 2nd ad) and when yo try to rewind to the point you left off, it just tries to play the first ad and gets stuck. Works fine in the iPad app.
Easy to use. Shows are current
I have an antenna 2/5

Do I have Use a tv provider to us the app
Can't use it 1/5
I have an older iPad and can no longer use the app. I travel a lot for family things and depend on it to keep up on shows. I can't afford right now to buy a new iPad, so I guess I have to not watch ABC
Add DirecTV live stream compatibility 1/5
By Uber is SAH
Why wouldn’t you make it so you can stream live tv no matter who your provider is? That seems like something that should have been done before the app was released. And it’s been how long now and still no DirecTV support?
Can't use since newest update 1/5
I can no longer use the app at all since the latest update requires "newer software." I've have the necessary software requirements and there is no "update" button, but it still won't let me use til I update it. So frustrating.
Fixed error 5/5
Fixed error I can now log in and watch my shows the next day
❤️ THANK YOU
By not helpuf
The app is not working on my iPad. When will there be a fix? I have deleted and reinstalled several times, looked for help online and no fixes found.
Enjoying it 4/5
Enjoying it. But it’s always give me an error message while I try to watch Live-TV even I am in the same internet with Spectrum. The app says it will be automatically recognized if I am in the same network with my wifi. So why is it happening? Can somebody solve this?
Chromecast CC doesn’t work 1/5
By Videographer 007
Can you fix this? Closed captions refuse to show up on my chromecast using my iPhone 8 on latest iOS
Locked out 3/5
I don’t see the purpose of having the ability to watch certain episodes and locking you out on others. I missed some episodes of some shows and still can’t watch on my phone app. Makes for bad PR.
TOO many ads again 2/5
The previous version was down to only 3 ads at a time and it seemed like a decent length of time in between the breaks but now I just updated and it’s back to 6 ads which is way too much just to watch a show. I watch more ads than show and they are long. This is the only platform that has so many ads. Please fix!
Can’t watch with direct tv 1/5
I’ve been watching this app for years with my direct tv and as of today it’s not letting me login. Says I gave to him through AT&T which is not working. So lame!
Waste of time 1/5
Could’ve been doing work this whole time. Screw this app
Very frustrated, I cannot watch locked episodes because the app will not let me change the TV provider! When logged in to my abc.com account, I try to log in to tv provider and it is stuck on DirectTv which I cancelled because of its constant disputes with major networks( was not showing 3 majors including ABC). And now I can’t log in to a different provider...I can via the website, but I want to cast to my tv, not watch on a laptop...please fix this glitch, thank you!
Terrible app 1/5
By kelsey sharry
Seems like every day I get a new error code, or it would lag/freeze up. No troubleshooting options either, the app just flat out won’t work 90% of the time. I put up with it for a long time, but now the app won’t even let me log in to my service provider. Can’t watch ABC at all anymore I guess 🤷🏻♀️
Army wives. 4/5

Love love love the cast and writing. But too many commercials on your ABC app.
Not Available Anywhere 1/5
By The kid who loves Physics
Travel a little bit, but can’t access anywhere outside of major cities. Disappointing.
Delayed and no 4K 1/5
Tried to watch the Oscar on my big screen which is a 4K projector not luck and worse the stream was delayed so 0 STAR.
Livestream not available 2/5
Sweet, the only reason I downloaded the app was because after the sign in process on my tv led to “livestream isn’t available in your area,” I tried the app using a broadband signal hoping that would change my area. But no the new area was also unavailable for live streaming. I pay for cable and I’m away from home and I just want to watch the Oscars. But I can’t and watching them the next day is just not the same.
Get with the times 1/5
Can’t watch the Oscars because the app requires you to sign in with a cable company, then tells you you can only stream in certain large cities, one in my state. Get with the times and have a streaming channel that can be subscribed to like CBS has. Many people dropped cable.
Sign in? 1/5
ABC is a broadcast network. When using the app, why on earth should I have to log in to a cable provider to watch ABC programming.
Not worth it 1/5
What’s the point if you can’t watch live TV. Ohh and don’t think you have digital antenna you can view live because The signal will conveniently be so week when there is a worth it program to watch.
Wouldn’t start at all. 1/5
Stuck right on start logo.
Airplay & Screen Mirroring BLOCKED 1/5
Doesn’t work with Airplay or screen mirroring. It’s 2020, people stream and don’t pay for traditional cable anymore. I have Samsung Smart Tv’s less than one year old and there is no ABC is their App Store. No way for me to watch live ABC on a screen bigger than my tablet. Inconvenient and behind the times. Create better copyright protections that don’t block viewers from Airplay/screen mirroring, and this could be a great app.
Continued error with chromecast 1/5
Cannot use chromecast due to some sort of “adobe pass error”. Have updated to the newest version and this is still a problem. Very frustrating and results in me not watching.
Frustrating App to Use 1/5
I believe it’s incredibly ridiculous that the FOX app allows you to watch the Super Bowl for FREE and this app won’t allow you to watch the Oscars unless you have a TV provider. How about the people that don’t want TV providers abc? What about us? Id like to be able to watch the Oscars for free like a normal person without having to sign off on an expensive TV provider. Hbo even lets you use their app without a tv provider. Please make this app usable without a tv provider!!!!
Abc watch 1/5
By Jaime colom
Your new schedule format for I phone is no good. The old type was much better and accurate.
Terrible network 1/5
By The Crenz
The list of markets available for live TV has barely changed in over a year, despite ABC’s nonsense that they are working hard on it, or whatever it is they say. It’s 2020 and they won’t make a live feed available in large swaths of the country, even with a cable login.
The Good Doctor 1/5
When this show started, it was one I looked forward to watching . However, it has developed into a slutty sexual innuendo show that isn’t fun or interesting to watch. It isn’t about a “good doctor” who happens to have autism and who can function in that world to save lives. He gets so wrapped up in these sexual innuendos, that he doesn’t function well as a “good doctor”.
This is a sad commentary on how an autistic individual could function well in a vocation within our society. A good show does not need sexual content to keep an audience. It’s sad because I was interested in watching a good show. This one has become demeaning to the autistic world.
What's the deal? I've been using this app on my "old" iPad but app forced me to update now it does not work, just keeps cycling to update to new version. Is there a limit to the version software that this app will work? I've reached my limit at 10.xx. If so it would be handy to know. Well went to your app help page. When was that written, 1989. Says IOS 9.x or greater will work. Bull! Right on the app details it says must be 11.0 or greater. I have 10.3.4 and will not upgrade further. And it says when I attempt upgrade it's not compatible, then asks if I want last working version, but warns it won't work?!?! Just be honest can I not use any ABC app on my iPad 10.3.4 ?
Agree with sheilar1960 1/5
The same is happening with my iPad. Your update has rendered your app to be useless, just the endless update loop.
Hate it 1/5
By Albert Awesome the 2nd
I got the app to watch a XFL game but I can’t because it says can’t watch in Tacoma Washington witch I’m not even in Tacoma Washington so if you want to watch any so I recommend not getting this app to watch XFL games because it’s just gonna waste your time
Be warned. Nothing is free! You have to sign up for a TV provider to use this app! I cut my cable and watch all the local channels over the air! I record shows on a Tablo box. I don’t want to have a subscription or I wouldn’t have even looked at this app!
Why the need to update when it's working fine? 1/5
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.
Problem with live stream 1/5
App will off and on again give me issues with live stream. The app will not recognize my provider. This is annoying having to delete app and re down load.
Robin. Weaver 4/5
Get rid of the commercials!//!!!
My provider 2/5
I can’t sign into any other tv provider other than Verizon. I previously have Verizon, but no longer due. I deleted the app to try and “wipe its memory” to connect to my new provider. That worked the first time, now it won’t. Even when I click login to provider, Verizon automatically pops up and I can’t pick a different one.
