Stupid ABC Family

I was going to sit and fold laundry while watching a show on their site, can't do it unless I sign in with my TV provider, even the episodes on Huluplus! Ugh. We ditched cable/satelite because $100/month is ridiculous for TV, now have Huluplus and Netflix so can't watch ABC family shows,  Big Bang Theory (my laptop wont play videos without "buffering" constantly and sometimes it messes up the video) along with several other shows for various reasons, I never had to do that before so didn't expect that to happen! Not a happy camper at the moment lol. I was looking forward to catching up while I had a little while of quiet time

I watch shows on ABC Family website and we don't have a cable provider...
We usually stream shows, like BBT.

Try Megashare.info (ugh, CM is being stupid and not letting me make it clicky. Probably because it is not a .com site.

Yeah. That's becoming a thing. They want your cable provider, which is stupid bc HuluPlus has ads and a monthly fee, so it isn't like we're trying to pirate it.

Many people are pissed off about it. The day ABC "upgraded" their app so that now you have to log in with your TV provider they went from 4 starts to 1 in record time, lol.
I was particularly pissed because I'm not in the US and that's how I watched some ABC shows using a router.

The cbs app lets you watch bbt. It's free. If you have a smart phone... There's also an abc app, food network app, and other tv channel apps that allow you to watch your favorite shows for free.

You can watch some Big Bang Theory with the CBS app.

Exactly, I figured even if they didnt have it on hulu theyd be available on huluplus since a ton of other stuff is, heck it wont even show up on my tv with hulu it has to be on my laptop when I look it up. I was excited for the shows to start back up but now I cant even watch them...

Yup, I tried my app first and then tried my laptop to see if it was just on mobile/tablet or something.... Very unhappy with them, they killed my "me time" plan lol
