Introduction:
Welcome to the ABC News App--one of the many, many news sources and news apps the Xbox One has to offer. Much to the glee of achievement hunters and completionists alike, these achievements should take you under an hour. There is a small mixture of types of videos to watch, a couple app/system related achievements, and a Twitter account required achievement.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
The app is fairly simple to work through, with only a Twitter achievement requiring a little extra work. You will unlock "Field Reporter" right off the bat when you open up the app. You can then go through and snag a live video and see if you can also save a video, although it can easily be done during any of the four sections (politics, entertainment, local, and technology) where you need to watch five of each.

You will also need to pin the app to your homepage to unlock "Newsie," and should wrap up your app progress if you do it last.

Conclusion:
Well that's it. A very quick 10 achievements, 0, and about an hour worth of time, you should have the ABC News App all wrapped up and polished off. Just remember you will need a Twitter account (and your information to log in) to grab that achievement, and aside from that, there should be nothing left to trip you up.

Field Reporter0
You watched Live video.

News Junkie0
You watched 10 videos.   

You do not actually have to watch 10 whole videos. What I suggest is snapping your achievement app and going through clicking videos from any section, and when the achievement bar moves, move on to another video.

You should look to pair this up with two category video achievements.
"Tech Specialist" for five tech videos.
"Entertainment Critic" for five entertainment videos.
"Town Crier" for five local videos.
"Politico" for five political videos.

You saved a video.   

For this one you will have to do a little bit of work because the menus change, and not all provide you the ability to save. Here is a little step-by-step:

  1. Go to a video (any will do).
  2. Press to make the video go full screen.
  3. Press to bring up the "Up Next" bar, but more importantly, possible videos to save for later.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom row of up next videos, and begin pressing until you find one with the menu that has "Save for Later" at the top.
  5. Press that and unlock the achievement.
