ABC Begins Live Streaming of Philadelphia and New York City Stations via Updated iOS App

ABC Begins Live Streaming of Philadelphia and New York City Stations via Updated iOS App

We told you earlier this week that ABC was preparing to stream live TV via its iOS app to users residing in New York City and Philadelphia. Today the updated ABC app has hit the App Store, and it marks the first time a major network has offered an experience like this in an app.

The ABC Player is now called “Watch ABC” and with it comes the new live TV experience as well as the full length on demand episodes that were previously available. The new live streaming service will also be available to users on Kindle Fire and online at ABC.com.

Live video will initially be limited to Philadelphia and New York City, and as of July 1, users will have to verify their “eligible TV provider account for continued access.” Eligible cable providers currently include Comcast, Cablevision, Cox, AT&T U-verse, Charter, and Midcontinent.

ABC has plans to roll out the app to other markets over the summer including: Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, Raleigh-Durham and Fresno.

The Watch ABC app is available FREE for the iPhone and iPad in the App Store. [DIRECT LINK]
