What's New in Version 3.2.1
Cable companies WIN
With all of these "Bug fixes" updates, it is just an attempt at them trying to get rid of all the THOUSANDS of negative reviews. So, I am posting yet another negative review:
ABC... I am a HUGE supporter of you, Disney, etc. However, it is TERRIBLE to see you taking steps backward and only allowing people to watch shows if they have a subscription service. I'm sorry, but this is not a customer-minded move. I will NEVER pay for TV. I am the next generation and we aren't going to change. Pretty soon the baby boomers will pass and people will continually stop paying for subscriptions.
On top of that previous rant, I would like to point out that although you ONLY allow a 'premium' viewing of live content, I happened to be at a friend's house last night (who stupidly pays for TV still) to watch the Oscars and the service didn't work on Apple TV, iPhone, a PC, or a MacBook Pro. Why would you offer a 'Premium' service that you can't even deliver? TERRIBLE!
1 star for complete lack of forward thinking and for giving in to the cable companies offering you so much money to screw over millions of viewers. Shame on you for that! Deleting app now.
Very Disappointing ....
Well..First off i do have a subscription to your cable provider BUT i pay my share in the house but i wont go trough the hassle of asking around my house whatever the heck all the info to log in is....I find it not worthy if everything you "update" still lacks in the app. It's unfair to many and i was a big Fan now instead of gaining you lost. ...If you want to gain fans and keep people try this idea for a change...."Watch ABC all you want but if you subscribe to cable provider NO ADS and episode right when it comes out " ...Could be fair for many ...(plus making money from ads).i don't mind waiting a day late to watch my show as long as i can see them. ....That's just a suggestion!!!! BUT you cut the cord between your fans and this app ..don't be shock not many will use this app!
Are you kidding me?
ABC, I downloaded this app as soon as it came out. I even emailed and suggested the ABC Family app because I loved this one so much. I dearly wish that was still the case. I pay a cable bill that allows me to watch abc but unfortunately, I work and want to stay caught up on Greys Anatomy and Scandal. Now, because of your lovely new feature, I CANNOT WATCH ANYTHING AT ALL. It is absolutely ridiculous to have to "verify" that you pay for ABC to watch anything and my cable company isn't one of your preferred ones. This just flat out ignores the fact that I STILL pay a bill for cable every month and you get a nice portion of that. What if I just e-mailed you a picture of my cable bill? Would I be "preferred" then? ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!!! This app isn't even worth having anymore. Good job discriminating.
