Disney|ABC continues momentum on Amazon Fire TV, launching video-centric OTT apps for its ABC Owned Station Group - WLS-TV/Chicago, WABC-TV/New York, KABC-TV/Los Angeles, WPVI-TV/Philadelphia, KGO-TV/San Francisco, KTRK-TV/Houston, WTVD-TV/Raleigh-Durham, KFSN-TV/Fresno. Freeform's streaming app is also now live, and ABC has published an updated UI and is now supported across all devices.

The ABC Owned station group Amazon Fire TV apps deliver local news, weather and community news, including an evening video digest with all the major news from the day, a "Feel Good" section that features upbeat, inspiring stories and a weather section that displays the seven-day weather forecast, as well as the latest weather-related video clips.

In a network first, Freeform is making 10 episodes available on its digital platforms with the two-hour television premiere event on Monday, January 2, 2017.

ABC's viewers who sign in also have next-day access to shows, and those in ABC owned station and Hearst affiliate markets can watch the 24-hour live stream.

Disney|ABC Television Group has been a pioneer in bringing its programming experiences to new platforms. Its network - ABC, Freeform, and Disney Channel - streaming apps were among the first to launch on iOS devices and are now on all major platforms. The OTV stations each have mobile apps that deliver local news.
