Watch ABC app retired from the Windows platform

ABC has officially retired the Watch ABC app from Windows platforms. Users who try streaming content through the app are now greeted with a message informing them that the app has indeed been retired from the platform, but they may continue to watch ABC content through the network's website:

"While we appreciate our loyal Windows community, we regret to inform viewers that we have retired the WATCH ABC app from the Windows platform. You may continue to watch ABC content from the ABC website on your desktop or supported mobile devices."

The Watch ABC app originally launched in October of 2014 and was available on both PC and mobile devices. The app provided on-demand access to some ABC shows, while users in select markets could even stream show live as they aired. There's no word on whether a Windows 10 app is in the works.

Thanks to Dan for the tip!
