ABC to break 'Scandal' fans hearts, limit next-day viewing online

ABC has announced that, beginning Monday (Jan. 6), they'll be placing limitations on just who can watch their content online and when. In order to view shows online through their website or the Watch ABC app, customers will have to log in with their cable subscription - however major providers DirecTV, DISH and Time Warner Cable are not currently included.

Customers without a cable login or a subscription to Hulu Plus will be made to wait eight days before the shows unlock for open viewing on ABC.com. However, next-day paid downloads will remain available through Amazon Instant Video and iTunes.

Or you could always just, you know, watch it live.
