ABC Video Player Available Abroad?
We have just learned that ABC's Video Player that carries premium television programming such as Lost, Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy over the network's ABC.com website may now be accessible abroad.
If you are living abroad, have broadband Internet connection and have tried to watch any of the episodes of these programs via ABC.com today do let us know by leaving a comment below this post whether you have been successful or not.
Earlier this year, ABC was one of the first networks in the US to make their programming available online. The video player carries their top-rated shows with limited advertising, normally paid for by a single advertiser per episode.
The service is however normally unavailable to viewers abroad, including Canada, due to copyright issues.
If the programs are available abroad for the moment, it is not clear whether this is due to a technical problem or if it is a part of the network's current special package to offer all episodes of featured shows that have aired so far this season until January premieres.
