ABC unveils new streaming app full of classic shows and digital originals

Full seasons of 'Ugly Betty' and 37 more classic ABC shows are available for streaming on the new ABC app and ABC.com. (ABC.com)

You can now find a lot of classic ABC shows, and a whole new library of digital-only series available online and on mobile.

ABC announced a major re-launch of their streaming app, redefining how audiences can access ABC content. The new app features all the same live streaming of popular shows such as Scandal and Marvel's Agents of Shield and local newscasts, but also entire seasons of 38 "throwback" classics including Felicity, My So-Called Life, School House Rock, Sports Night, Dinosaurs, Ugly Betty and a whole slate of new short-form series. All the app content is also available for streaming at ABC.com.

"Our team has completely re-imagined the digital viewing experience for ABC fans," said Karin Gilford, SVP of Digital Media, ABC Television Network. "In addition to the current ABC shows that fans know and love, we are introducing new ABCd original digital series that are fun, fresh and perfect for mobile, and we are making full seasons of all-time favorite shows from ABC Studios' library available for binging."

The entire library of shows and ABCd digital series are available for free, without signing in with a pay TV service. You can still watch your favorite local newscasts live and on demand via the app, though with a paid TV subscription. The ABC app is available in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.

The new digital-only short-form series under the ABCd umbrella now available are listed below.
