What's New in Version 5.0.12
Great shows, terrible quality app
After first reading other reviews, I thought many were a harsh rating of the ABC app. I figured that this app would have ads, as it does online for most of its kind, and it did. However, after having both the NBC and CW app for other shows, my opinion of the ABC app has become significantly more negative. The competing network apps are user friendly, have a "favorites" option to find your shows right away, and show only infrequent, brief ads per episode. Trying to view one show on the ABC app and having 6 ads each commercial break is a little much. Yet to have the ads then stop after the 4th or 5th ad, forcing it to crash and forcing me to reopen it again not once, not twice, but 3 times during one show and still not having the ads load properly has now taken more time than I care to spend messing with it. Not having an option to "resume" where I was watching previously and having to reload every single ad that showed for the entire episode every time is ridiculous. Save yourself the trouble of this app and watch it on a computer in your free time. The whole point of the app is convenience and mobility, and this one has neither.
So yeah you can watch the new episodes of shows, but there are so many things that overpower that in a bad way. First is the ads. Ugh, how much money do you need abc, because I literally have more ad time than show time. The normal amount of ads are about 36-40 and each one is usually more than a minute like I get that you need money to support the app but really come on, I was watching a short clip that was literally fifteen seconds and it gave a thirty second ad. Literally double the amount of time of my actual clip. When you get an app to watch shows you don't expect there to be fifty billion ads every ten seconds. Secondly, is the loading. It glitches so many times and won't load and the only way for me to get it to load is to X out of it and then go back in, but this normally happens when I'm going through the insane amount of ads and it makes me watch another six ads just to keep watching the show. And when it does that when I'm actually watching the show it usually puts like two ads before I can even continue from where I left off.
The Venetian hotel 👎🏼
Rest assured, all the negative reviews are true. ABC is greedy and money hungry which makes total sense considering Disney is their parent co. The app was/is/and always will be buggy and inconsistent, and yes you do have to log in to your cable provider :/
I can forgive all that but what I can't forgive is this app torturing you with the same 3 d@&# commercials every break should you choose to stream live. I've heard that f'ing Venetian hotel (lol it just played as I typed this) song to the point of insanity. It's been the first thing I've heard when I wake up and the last before bed and it honestly puts me in a terrible mood. Even worse, live tv will cutout sometimes and it'll jump right to that song. I missed part of a presidential address because ABC felt the need to air that Venetian commercial mid speech! How much money do you need? What kind of dirt does the Venetian have on you guys??? That song is going to put me in the hospital. As god as my witness I will never stay at the Venetian and I will tell everyone I know or encounter in the future to stay clear of that putrid POS hotel. I hate you Venetian. Have a nice day!
