Love ABC

I love love love abc and watch it ALL THE TIME! This app is a lifesaver compared to all those other expensive hard to use apps! I definitely recommend using this app as you will be blown away! To improve this almost perfect app I would…….. add more programs for teenagers. There is almost no content for teens to watch. There is content for younger kids and adults but I have looked and looked but what shows do teens watch? I find myself continuing to watch the same things (not that is bad or anything……..🤪) but add more content number one. Number 2 add some new shows! Often there is shows from 2018 but I never find new shows all my friends rave on about these news shows they find on other programs bunt I want to watch the babysitters club and not have to pay $30 to netflix! Other than these small issues (easily fixed) I love abc and can not even describe how much I love it!

AlonBerman ,

Great app!

I generally love this app especially being able to continue watching as you switch apps where it o relays your screen.

Tip: If you hold the app icon you can jump into your content quickly.

-1 star for having to select “who’s watching” ever time I login. A phone is a personal device - remember me and let me take extra steps to switch my profile if need be (in a rare to never event). Also if the app could remember my last activity (like watching ABC News) and allow me to continue watching right away from the first screen I enter on, it saves me selecting who’s watching, scrolling to the ABC News live stream and clicking play when the page opens.

Developer Response ,

Hello AlonBerman. If only use one profile on ABC iview and you may notice that we have reduced the amount of times we ask "Who's Watching" on our latest update (5.1.0). You could also add your favourite live stream to your Watchlist to save you on the scroll and additional taps. Hope this helps!
