    For those of you who haven't tried this app go and try it, I'm currently watching all the episodes of V and the quality of the video is better than itunes videos that I have downloaded, it's a on demand app for all ABC shows.

    love this app.

    oh by the way everybody on V uses iphones :D

    Great quality, agreed. And they just released an update today to address the crashing problems.

    It seems like the quality of the commercials is low, so don't let the first commercial fool you, wait for the actual content.

    It does seem like they fixed the crashing, which is nice.

    If broadcasters keep this up I may have to rethink paying for cable. :)

    I am interested to find out when I get my iPad if when bought using my American itunes account it will work outside the states, if so that would be great.

    If it were a computer Id tend to say no it wont because it detects your location and such, and while all this is possible on an iPad it should have only ever been purchased in America so these location checks may not even happen, heres to hoping anyway.

    You have to see the program , most of the actors use iPhones and they make sure you see them.

    I love this app, has me thinking about returning and getting a 3g ipad to access this and netflix anywhere. I would get busted from verizon with all the tethering i would be doing. I hope this never goes pay though, i wouldnt mind ads popping up at the bottom/ corners sometimes too. The 3 ads probably pay for most of the shows though.

    I can't speak for the ABC app, but when I was in Australia for vacation, I could easily download from my American iTunes account with my laptop even though they could see from my geolocation that I was in Australia.

    But, as with anything there are easy ways around geolocation. Namely using a VPN connection in the US. iPhone OS supports VPN. I have a VPN account in Europe when I want to watch content from BBC that is blocked in the states.

    Steve Jobs is Disney's largest individual investor.

    (My family and I just returned from WDW over spring break and it rocked.)

    Honestly this app is probably the most polished and my favorite third party app. And to make things better it's free. Kudos. It's amazing.
