    I guess there are still some kinks with Watch ABC. I can watch live tv on my iPad, but on my android phone I get a message saying Directv is not available in this area for live stream viewing. I'm using the same wifi network for both devices and trying to watch the NYC O & O station in the NY dma. Guess I'll give it a day or two for things to get straightened out. Watch ESPN is much more important to me anyway.

    I tried logging into Watch ABC from my iPad and DirecTV does not show up as a provider. Went to the app store and can see where the Watch ABC app was updated today. Logged into Watch ESPN with no problems. I agree Watch ESPN is more important and a welcome addition.

    Watch ABC really needs a roku app.

    I have logged in to both WatchESPN, WatchABC, and WatchABCFamily on my iPhone and all are working well.

    I've signed in to the ABC, Disney, Disney XD, Disney Junior, and ESPN apps on my Apple TV. ABC Family is apparently missing from the Apple TV at the moment, but the iPhone app worked.

    I also signed in to the ESPN Apple TV app, but I already had access to it via my ISP, and never bothered to set it up, but I did all of them (hence Disney Junior), so why not?

    Fully agree. Amazon Fire TV would be nice also.

    In other words, all of those sky is falling articles claiming April-June or saying SEC Network+ wouldn't be coming until later were wrong.

    I just logged out and logged in again, DirecTV is on the list of providers for the Android WatchABC app.

    If you're trying to access the live stream it won't work unless you live in an O&O market, but On Demand content will be available. The O&O's are:
    WABC NYC
    KABC Los Angeles
    WLS Chicago
    WPVI Philly
    KGO San Francisco
    KTRK Houston
    WTVD Raleigh
    KFSN Fresno

    I got the same error at first, try logging out and logging back in again.

    On Mac you need to click sign out on this page:
    http://abc.go.com/my-profile

    On Android you need to tap the menu at the top right, select settings, select profile, tap the provider and tap sign out
