Live stream ABC online with a VPN
One of America’s original Big Three networks, ABC is a powerhouse in news, sports, and entertainment. Though it’s free to watch over the air anywhere in the United States (with an antenna), what if you want to stream ABC online*?
ExpressVPN lets you watch ABC securely, privately, and free from ISP throttling.
How to watch ABC live without cable
Fortunately, you don’t need cable or satellite to stream ABC online. A growing number of online-only “cord-cutting” services include ABC and allow you to watch ABC programs via their own apps and websites, give you full access to the ABC website and apps, or both.
Of course, if you or a member of your family already subscribe to a cable or satellite service, you can just supply those log-in credentials and stream ABC right away.
Finally, a number of popular programs are available at the ABC website for one week after they air without requiring a log-in. Just connect to a secure U.S. server and look for the choices without a lock symbol.
On what devices can I watch ABC?
You can also stream with the ABC app, available for Android, iOS, Apple TV, Amazon Fire devices (including Fire TV and Fire TV Stick), Android TV, Roku, and certain Samsung televisions. ExpressVPN offers solutions for all these devices, and many more. (Note: Some combinations may not be fully supported; for assistance, please contact Support.)
Alternatively, you can access ABC via one of the “cord-cutting” services listed below.
FAQ: Watching ABC with ExpressVPN
Does ExpressVPN come with ABC?
No. ExpressVPN won’t unlock ABC all by itself. To access most content online, you will need to log in using the credentials of your cable or satellite provider, or those of an internet-only cord-cutting service.
Which cord-cutting services offer ABC?
Availability is always changing, but ABC has recently been accessible through Locast, Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now), and Sling TV. All of these are fully compatible with ExpressVPN, so you can watch ABC securely anywhere, even on public Wi-Fi.
How can I watch ABC online for free?
Locast is a free, not-for-profit service that offers local programming from a number of major American media markets. Just sign up for a free account and stream with your preferred ExpressVPN browser extension. All the other cord-cutting services offer free trials. By trying out each one, you could easily enjoy weeks of free ABC streams. The price varies by package, but most are cheaper than cable, and none require a long-term contract.
Can I get my local ABC channel?
Each cord-cutting service offers live ABC streams from local television channels as well, giving you access to regional news and sports programming. The markets available to you typically depend on the ZIP code associated with your account, so you should retain access to your local channels even if you are using a mobile device away from home. Check each service’s website for details.
What live sports can I watch on ABC?
ABC, together with its sister network ESPN, is a prime destination for sports fans. Some of the marquee events on ABC include college football, pro basketball, Major League Soccer, and Formula 1 racing. (Not to mention the Oscars, if you’re into that sort of thing.)
