News summary: WatchABC expands for pay TV users

LIVE MOBILE ABC: WatchABC, a Disney app that allows viewing of live ABC programming on mobile devices, is expanding to Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and Raleigh-Durham, N.C., after offering a free trial in New York and Philadelphia.

PAY TV PROOF: Users have to verify they are a pay TV subscriber of Comcast, Cablevision, Cox, Charter, Midcontinent or AT&T. Not all pay TV providers offer the access, but as more deals are made, access should spread.

TV EVERYWHERE: Getting mobile access to TV programs at no extra charge on mobile devices is meant to add value to pay TV subscriptions, but executives acknowledge the rollout has been slow.
