The Watch ABC set of apps have done a great job in upgrading ABC Network’s on-demand and live contents from the ancient website windows to our smartphones and tablets. And today, the Watch ABC iOS app was updated to support AirPlay, whereby you can directly play full screen videos on your Apple TV, instead of using the universal screen mirroring.
What’s New in Version 3.4.0
-AirPlay streaming now available via Apple TV.
Just like before, you’ll need to sign up with a supported cable operator account to make full use of the app, though few open contents are available for non-subscribers also. You can find a list of the supported providers, their schedule and other frequently asked questions here.
The update might sound unnecessary to many because Apple TV has its own Watch ABC channel, since last December. However, the real use of this update comes in cases where you’re watching shows on someone else’s Apple TV or when you are using some third party software like AirServer or Reflector to turn your PC or Mac into AirPlay receivers.
The addition is perfectly timed to precede the upcoming fall season of TV shows and the updated app can be downloaded from here for free.
