Watch ABC takes over ABC Player, live TV now available in New York and Philadelphia

Screen Shot 2013-05-14 at 4.18.30 PMABC Player is gone, and here comes Watch ABC. The application, which was just updated today, has gotten a new name to go along with the new services included in the update. Getting bumped up to version 3.0.0, users are now able to watch live television right from their devices. However, this service is currently only available in New York and Philadelphia. However, on July 1st anyone with who “verifies” their provider should be able to access the service, according the iTunes change log:

What’s New in Version 3.0.0

– The ABC Player is now called WATCH ABC.
– Now in select markets, WATCH ABC is a new way to experience ABC television. You can watch your favorite TV shows and local programming – LIVE.* 

*Live video available in Philadelphia and New York City area only. Must be within each station’s local viewing area. Program substitutions may apply. Starting July 1, 2013, simply verify your eligible TV provider account for continued access to LIVE video.

The updated application is currently available in the App Store if you wish to update or download the application, if you haven’t already: WATCH ABC.
