ABC – Live TV, Shows & Movies app reviews

  • App won’t launch 1/5

    By Club dead
    After many tries, app won’t launch
  • Doesn’t work the first thing in the morning 1/5

    By nota happycustomer
    I like the way you were able to see all the shows at once so you could pick which one you want to watch, and the app never seems to work for me, the first thing in the morning, I liked the other setup you had, just because it’s newer doesn’t mean it’s always better, don’t fix what’s not broken!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Temperamental App 2/5

    By Whitney Hampton
    App often freezes at Logo, soon after opening. Happens more times than not. Using IO 15.0.2. Quite frustrating.
  • Signed in with tv provider & still a million commercials 1/5

    By Total garbage!!!! This is
    If i already pay for my att uverse, and sign into the abc app & use that - why do i still have to watch an extremely ridiculous amount of commercials?
  • Bad app 2/5

    By HeidiBrott
    Basically every other day I get an “oops”, error pop up and I can play any show. I have to delete the app and get it again, and then it works. It is so annoying!!
  • ABC 1/5

    By Cathy&Ronnie
    We no longer get ABC on our Dish network I think that’s Bull I didn’t want to give a rate at all I think their sorry for doing what they are just another way to make more money
  • Worst app - might be a record 1/5

    By 24Member
    Not sure how the ratings are remotely high for this app. It’s by far the worst app I’ve used. It’s supposed to be compatible with airplay, yet the episodes will randomly restart from the beginning, replay the same 1 second bits nonstop, stop sharing, say “oops” and disconnect (like that’s a real reason,) not disconnect from airplay unless you select it a bunch of times, add random commercials when you try to correct the unrequested rewinds, etc. They've earned the worst app award!! “Oops!!” Also, my phone’s not old, my software’s not obsolete, and I’m not IT illiterate ;)
  • does not allow connection to TV 1/5

    By Parchos
    Your app is seriously flawed. Unlike the NBC app, it does not allow me to connect my iPhone to the TV. The only reason for using the app is to watch episodes you may have missed, hopefully on a big screen. If you think I am going to watch any show on my iPhone without connecting it to my TV, you have a seriously flawed viewer profile. I guess I will have to continue viewing the competition. 😡
  • Background music 1/5

    By Srhona
    Your tv shows have background music that is too loud to hear the conversations. I didn’t know how to contact ABC directly, so I’m going through you. It’s really not entertaining if you cannot follow along.
  • Used to be the best, impossible after recent updates 2/5

    By IB_angele
    The ABC app was the best of the major networks to use with Xfinity. Now, the app doesn’t come off the black with red dot(s) loading screen. And when it does I have to know the username and password for the Xfinity online account instead of automatically connecting having seen that I’m on an Xfinity network. It’s become so difficult to watch my favorite shows on demand, I don’t know that I will watch my favs this season.
  • Terrible 1/5

    By aaayyyyjayyyy
    Constantly freeZing, always have to log back in to TV provider, SO SLOW. Awful app
  • Don’t work 1/5

    By As4me07
    I have an iPhone 12 and this app only opened once.
  • “Oops, the content you’re looking for was not found” 5/5

    By riverrunner2008
    Editing my review because I was able to force quit and restart, which stopped the playback error. I’ll leave my original review in case someone has a similar problem — The episodes are unlocked and available yet when you click on them, this error message comes up. 🤷🏼‍♀️ This is a review of the recent update as this app is normally reliable.
  • Review of this App 5/5

    By Racheal3110
    It works very well
  • No streaming Video for TV 2/5

    By Chemicker
    The app is great if I only watch programs on my iPad but no video when I connect using the Apple AV HDMI connector to my Samsung smart tv. I can hear the audio portion only. Not sure if it is a technical problem or ABC blocking the video signal. Other tv apps work fine for audio and video.
  • Not connecting to network 1/5

    By Gvgig
    I cannot get this to work with my network via my ipad (v14.8) it will not accept my password and won’t even give me a keyboard to type in anything else. I use to be able to connect via Apple but now it doesn’t even give me that option.
  • Sign in to a cable provider? 1/5

    By TPlayer801
    Why would I need to sign in to a cable provider to watch live tv when I don’t have a cable provider? You are a network tv broadcaster that is available over the air on digital antenna. It’s still a thing you know.
  • Comercials 2/5

    By LizzieLobster
    Comercials come in too often and I don’t like the fact that we can’t watch it on demand anymore
  • Really? 1/5

    By PB888
    Downloaded thinking I’d be able to watch a couple of my favorite shows either live or from archive. Total scam. Shame on ABC. Shame on ABC. Viewership should be valued. Long time watcher. Now annoyed that it’s seems impossible to delete the app from Apple TV. Fortunately there are many other options out there.
  • Not working ever since they updated 1/5

    By shskkskc
    I have not been able to sign on since there was an update. Please fix this.
  • This is the best you can do? 1/5

    By Dallasdarlin
    This app constantly crashes, shows are blurry. You have to constantly delete the app and reinstall to get a good picture. Other major networks (NBC, CBS) work like a charm with no issues. I think ABC needs to have some technical adjustments to their app!
  • Frustrated 1/5

    By rmliterski
    Like the App, but frustrated. Offers to let you watch one full length sponsored commercial instead of regular commercial breaks. You watch it, but does not automatically return to the program. No way to exit. If you hit “nevermind” tab, it sends you back to the beginning and you must choose again to view one or the other. Pretty much like “click bait” items on social media. Just doesn’t work!
  • App does not open 1/5

    By Anonymous in Florida
    This app has not worked on my phone for months. Sometimes I would get those “oops” messages some of the other reviews mentioned if it opens at all but usually I cannot even get past the ABC logo as it freezes and doesn’t allow me to access any content. I’ve tried turning the phone off and on again, and deleting and reinstalling the app with no luck. I usually don’t use the TV set and watch all of my programs on the phone, so there is one program I haven’t been watching regularly of this issue.
  • Dancing with stars unfair 2/5

    By ParxnParx
    They keep some people that are not good, maybe because of their name. I think the scoring is also unfair
  • Not great 1/5

    By Jessica24marie
    Really slow, and the fact that it doesn’t have Picture In Picture when watching live TV is so antiquated. Every other networks app has it
  • No AT&T TV? 2/5

    By Pbrat04
    AT&T uverse is an option, but not AT&T TV? Weird and annoying.
  • Too many commercials 3/5

    By WendigoKiller
    There were too many of the same commercials and it the feed was choppy and slow.
  • Ads ads and more ads!!! 1/5

    By ProudNNLegend
    You click on the show, ads, you watch 2 minutes, ads. Do not download this app! 2 years ago they replied to another comment saying they would fix the amount of ads in this, THEY NEVER DID THO. -an unhappy customer
  • Glitches 3/5

    By SMDesign16
    I try to sign in to my account or my TV provider and the screen freezes and I have to force close it all the time. It doesn’t keep me signed in! It’s frustrating.
  • I have to close and open the app to get it to play 2/5

    By Gamblesha
    I give this rating only because Since 2020 or earlier i have had to open the app at least 2x before i can get to launch on to the start page on my iPad Pro 11. The 1st time I launch it just sits at the ABC logo page with the pin wheel spinning. I completely close the app and reopen and sometimes it will open on to the start page. I would have given the rating a 5 if this issue was resolved prior to this last update but its not and it is still a problem…
  • Abc watch 1/5

    By Jaime colom
    I can’t watch the shows when I connect my I phone to the TV I onlyhave hear sound no picture please advise
  • Unstable/unreliable. Works doesn’t work. 3/5

    By orgrawvgan
    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.
  • Never works 1/5

    By casagrande5643
    This is like the 30 th time I have gotten the app. It always says not authenticated will not let me submit feedback can not select tv provider if I actually get on it says seems like a problem. Completely ridiculous
  • ABC 5/5

    By softtouchlr
    ABC, has always been a channel in my life. They have a lot of family shows. I can always count on enjoying drama’s, comedy and even educational shows too. I really love the ABC app. It allows me to watch my favorite shows when I miss them. Thank you ABC for always entertaining us for years. Please continue keeping us entertained. Thank you, Lynell Regisford
  • Worst app 1/5

    By Xxqchristyxx
    This app is terrible on a TV. You constantly need to sign in due to it not remembering your info. It constantly kicks you off the app. You can’t get on live 50% of the time, because it won’t load. Only app I have that does all that!
  • Trouble viewing 3/5

    By in western NC
    I have trouble viewing shows using my tv provider ! That doesn’t happen on CBS or NBC or Fox. I have direct tv and I can watch any thing on those channels. Is it because ABC is pushing Hulu?
  • Streaming stinks always choppy 3/5

    By Rmp93089
    Streaming stinks. I don’t have issues with any other network other than ABC choppy, freezes
  • Won’t sign into tv provider anymore 1/5

    By Samurai1911
    Cant use the app anymore since everything is locked. Cant sign into my tv provider due to an error. It used to work fine but not anymore after updating my iPad recently
  • App is always locked 1/5

    By delilliepad
    I watch ABC on my iPhone and iPad and it is always locked. The only way I can use the app is to delete it and then upload it again.
  • Love watching my soap on my own time 4/5

    By Loving GH
    I totally enjoy being able to watch my General Hospital on my own time. I do not have to sit at home and wait for 2 p.m. I am able to go to my appointments as I need to knowing that As soon as I am with free time after 8 p.m. I can get caught up with my soap. However, it does Not always work that way. ABC is Not always available on the app. The app goes off more than 3times a week. Wish it was easier. Please, stop locking me up.
  • Great app, search bar glitches alot- 4/5

    By The lil burnt chicken nugget
    So uhm. I always wanted to find agents of sheild and somebody said they found it here! But i only watched body of proof bc the search bar isnt working- Great app tho!
  • Remove this app from my Apple store 1/5

    By Starshemia

  • Useless for live tv 1/5

    By cst18
    I have to sign in every time I want to use the live feature on the app and more often than not I get some sort of error or authentication failure.

  • Doesn’t work! 1/5

    By kookie318
    Worst app EVER!!!
  • These apps are TRASH 1/5

    By bmk1580
    Authentication failure on TWO apps to use my cable subscription to watch “Impeachment”? Yeah… epic fail here! Big time. Sorry to #RyanMurphy and #BradFalchuk… so wanted to watch and support. But the apps had another idea. What a colossal waste.
  • App 1/5

    By genhosgirl
    This is absolutely horrible at least before this new app I knew what I was doing and could get to what i wanted to watch. It rates a zero. So disappointed.
  • ABC 5/5

    By greatsouthbay
    How 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.
