ABC to Live Stream Shows Via App

Disney’s ABC Television Group will soon begin testing a new program that will let viewers in the New York City and Philadelphia areas live stream television programming from the ABC app. Beginning tomorrow afternoon, the “WATCH ABC” authenticated service will be available on the app through the end of June.

Here is more from the press release:

The new WATCH ABC service provides viewers for the first time ever with live access to their favorite ABC shows and local market programming, as well as a variety of on-demand content — in more ways than ever before at home and on the go around town. In addition to allowing live linear streaming of viewers’ local ABC stations, the new authenticated WATCH ABC service will include the great, on-demand full-episode viewing experience that the ABC Full-Episode Player and ABC Player app have offered, respectively, online and via tablets and phones.
The WATCH ABC app is available for iOS and Windows devices and will be available on Samsung Galaxy devices this summer.
