watch_abc-630x307Love Watch ABC and love your Fire TV? Well Christmas just came early as ABC has released a cord cutting friendly Watch ABC Fire TV app. The only catch is if you do not have cable you need to wait 7 days before you can watch the show for free. Also after 30 days the show is removed. So you get about 3 weeks as a cord cutter to watch the show 100% free! They even have specials, extras, clips, and more on top of the 38 available shows.
