The lock symbol identifies which episodes require you to sign in with a participating TV provider. The locked episode for many shows will become available to watch without signing in with a participating TV provider 8 days* after the episode first airs on TV.
However, there is unlocked content available on free 24/7 streaming channels that give you instant access to programs from ABC, ABC News, Freeform, and National Geographic without signing in with a participating TV provider.
*Availability of unlocked episodes is subject to change due to programming contract requirements.
