Users can download the app that allows them to watch ABC news from the Apps section on ABC.com. Although the Watch ABC app is free as part of the TV subscription service, it requires a participating TV provider account for users to log in.
Users can watch the news by streaming the same content that’s airing on their nearest ABC station. The live streaming functionality of the Watch ABC app allows a user to watch the news on his computer or any mobile device that’s compatible with the app. The downside is that live streaming is limited to only several U.S. markets as of 2015, including New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago and Houston.
