watchabcABC has updated its Watch ABC Apple TV app to allow all Apple TV users to watch full episodes of ABC shows a week after they air without having to verify their TV provider. Previously, users had to sign in via their TV provider to watch any full episodes.

All Apple TV viewers can now access full episodes a week after they air. Like WATCH ABC for mobile devices and desktop, viewers can now watch such shows as ScandalHow to Get Away With MurderModern Familyblack-ishOnce Upon A Time and Castle, among others, a week after they air.  Sign in is required for ABC's live network feed and its most current episodes

However, users are only allowed to watch the five TV show episodes prior to the most current one. Users who sign in to the app with their TV provider gain the ability to watch full episodes of the last five episodes of any TV show the day after they air and live TV.

The app was also updated with a brand new look and a continuous play mode that automatically starts the next episode for the viewer, similar to the system Netflix uses in its apps.

Yes! The tide is shifting for a better user experience. Hopefully the mobile apps will follow, as I'm tired of having to enter my log-in info every two weeks.

I'm tired of having to identify what a channel really is. Is it streaming shows? Is it a collection of highlights? Is it simply an interactive ad filled with commercials? Does it need a cable subscription, third party account, or to be registered by visiting some url and entering a code? I don't even try these stores anymore because all they do is add addional steps and confusion to what should be the very simple and passive activity of watching tv.

Doesn't seem to work outside the U.S.

So. Lame.

I suggest you change the title of this thread to ".. for All Users in the U.S.".

"All Apple TV viewers can now access full episodes a week after they air."

*All* Apple TV users? All Apple TV users =/= Apple TV users in the US.

US centric much?

Yeah, the American version of ABC. Would be nice if Apple stepped out a little and took a look outside of North America fo rthe Apple TV apps.
