What's New in Version 3.1.4
Bug fixes and small improvements.
I loved the app that once displayed movies, had the episodes of enjoyable TV shows...what happened? Oh, right, the update!
Seriously, what happened? I keep myself from deleting waste of storage hoping that the so called update will be fixed. In fact, I didn't even UPDATE manually, which I always like and appreciate doing myself. However with this, one day, it had updated on its own and rendered the app USELESS!
First off, I wouldn't mind having to give my TV cable provider and everything for live stuff. I get that. But what about the shows that you can watch the next day? That should be completely as it was, and it was stupid on ABC family's part to change that. Other apps have that.
Why have to go through the lengthy process to actually watch shows that someone could watch before easily?
All these one star reviews say something! I hope ABC Family is listening and changing it back RIGHT NOW! If this app doesn't get changed, it will be deleted. That's a shame, because then I have to wait for it to come out on Netflix. I would rather wait for a guaranteed show on Netflix than have my hopes up for a ruined app!
I am disappointed, and so are other people. It's not just me! It's time for ABC Family to fix this mess. Sure, some people have cable. I do. I just think its stupid, and unfair to those you DO NOT have cable.
Change it back to the way it was! It'll do everyone a favor!
Why all the negative comments?
Okay, so you all seem to think that you shouldn't have to type in your cable provider. This is a CABLE CHANNEL it requires cable, so why would they just let anyone see it? I understand why people would be upset at the fact that their cable provider wasn't listed though. But personally, I love it! I use this app for watching Pretty Little Liars, my favorite show in the whole world. And The Fosters, which is one of my favorites. You get to watch full episodes! So if your busy and you can't watch it on your TV, which HAS CABLE, then you can make up for it on this app. That's what it's for. It's not for letting people without cable watch cable shows. If you really want to watch the shows, get Netflix and wait until June for season four to come on it. My only concerns about this app though is that it is relatively glitchy and it only shows episodes for a couple weeks back, then it expires. I feel like they should show the full season that they are on. (that's me personally)
For real?! Neg. 5 stars!
Seriously? You have to "log in" with your tv provider ?!! Ok, so I try it and YOU DONT HAVE MINE!!! Requested them to get it through the email thing a million times and NOTHING! How stupid ! You can go to mtv's website and watch their shows you've missed! And you used to be able to do it here as well so why change a good thing?! Like many have said before, not everyone can afford tv and watching it online is their only option. Very crappy move ABC Family ! ! You should really read your reviews and pay attention to them & have more courtesy for your viewers that made you who you are! None of these shows would have succeeded if you didn't have any viewers to watch them ! So let your viewers watch them without all the rigmarole !!!! And if you're going to change it then at least have more than a couple providers that actually work! Add the huge, popular providers like DISH & DIRECT that supply to millions all across the nation ! They're 2 of the top leading providers so at least add them. If you're gonna do it, do it right and don't half ace it ! -5 stars
