Love this channel and the app! I could live with only this channel and be completely content with life! Keep it up CW 🙌🏾
ANNOYING!!!- Commercials Hi-Jack Your Phone 1/5
I can't stand commercials. So I mute them when they start. But when you lower your volume on your phone to mute commercials, the app will hijack your phone by closing the app and opening a safari window to the advertisers website. This is INCREDIBLY ANNOYING and I will delete the CW app and wait for the shows to appear at n Netflix. I never write reviews but this Ad experience is the worst.
I loved this app at first but now it says server error unable to play video so I can't watch nothing nothing and even on the CW Seed don't work either please fix this
By Daddy Bobbie
Seems to have some type of bug. App downloaded in about 10 secs, when I opened it the loading screen popped up but all the screens after that are black with a couple of random details. It's not showing any tv shows. iPhone 6s
What's going on with this app? Each time I try to watch a show...It loads up showing the CW (''dare to defy'')...then cuts off...I've deleted this app then re-installed it to have the same happen..
Pleaaaaase fix this bug...
I really miss & love the CW😥
The CW app. Great app. Easy download, and its FREE!! No passwords. Or subscription bs.. One downfall is the commercials, or if u try n resume the show u watch a lot of them before your show resumes, but its the nature of free. Ads are just apart of it. Watch all ur fav cw shows that you missed. Whenever!! Well worth the 2 minute download.... Iphone 6 Plus (verizon). Update 9/7/17. Still have. Still use 100% free. Tons of great shows!! No issues still. Roku, ps4, Xbox one, iphone 6s plus. Iphone 5s. All works Great!!
Full Seasons? 3/5
I'm watching a couple shows on here, and it's not the ads that I have a problem with-it's the fact that there are the first, maybe, 3 episodes, and then the last few. I don't have access to The CW anywhere else except this app, and I'm really hoping that they will start putting full seasons on for us to stream.
By Lucky Lucky Lucky Lucky
It's a good app. However, they could leave episodes up for longer and have more at a time. One negative is the commercials are getting a little long. I've had this app for a long time now, they could benefit from looking back at what it used to be to improve.
The app is really good
Still needs A LOT of work 1/5
Being able to watch free shows from anywhere on your devise is a great concept and the fact that CW is trying to accomplish this is very user and fan friendly for the shows they produce BUT app has a lot of flaws and they do not seem to get fixed with updates..
1. Can not open control center on my Phone while on my app to check battery or time or anything else for that matter.
2. Once you click off this app from a show to check ANYTHING, when returning to app show no longer plays or you will have to restart and go through about 10-15mins of adds you have already respectfully done to watch your show.
3. Often does not play shows from the second your open the app, no deleting and reloading, or refreshing app will help you.
3. No full episodes! There will be the first 3 episodes in the season then the last 4 episodes of that season.. why not have the entire season available?
Overall CW you have a lot of work ahead of you before you catch up with the big players of television apps.. you need to upgrade your system and staff so these problems can be fixed. Everyone seems to have it, for the most part down but you. I think you are a big enough television broadcaster to be able to fix these issues and not just stumble around and waste time. Fans want to watch your shows and are willing to sit through BAD repeated ads to do so on your app. Step up your game!
If Riverdale is on it, than I give it five stars!!!!!
Freaking Awesome 5/5
App crashes 1/5
App crashes when I open it.
Too many ads 2/5
By Zero Suit Roxas
I understand the need for ads, but there's just too many of them. The app doesn't remember which commercial breaks you've already passed, so if you rewind you have to go through another 4 minutes of ads to go backwards, and then another one after you catch back up.
No problems 5/5
By lol glop
Good quality and if I miss an episode it shows up on the app! Great app!
Decent app, used to be better 3/5
I am noticing that episodes are being skipped. I.e. Supergirl jumps from 212 to 216. I've never encountered something like that in the past. If this was fixed, I'd give the app 5 stars.
By Rebeca s-s-b
Opened the app and it was empty. It showed me the menu options and the layout of the page but it had no shows or info
The app won't even open! I deleted it and redownloaded it to see if it fixed the problem but it did not. Please fix this issue!
I will only change the rating after this issue is fixed!
I really love this app but I really hate is the commercials are annoying and it quits by itself too much n I'd have to play those annoying commercials again! And it won't let me skip ahead if I missed a part! And I agree with everyone else posts as well.
Something is seriously wrong with this app! Every time I try to open it, it keeps closing! Why hasn't this bug been fixed yet?
I don't see anything wrong with it
It's not good 1/5
It won't even start up the app now
By Bus Driving Gamer
None of the episodes/videos play on any show
I hate this app. 1/5
I hate having to leave the app to check my battery or the time. I hate not being about to swipe the control center of Notification Center up on the phone while watching something. I HATE (with the burning intensity of the sun) that when I watch a show I am behind on, it shows commercials for the CURRENT episode....... I. Hate. This. App.
ONLY HALF GOOD 2/5
The app is okay, except some of the shows I want to watch are on a different CW app. Why not have them all on the same app? I do not need to watch bad enough to put that much effort into it. There are other apps that will provide quality one stop shopping entertainment.
Needs full seasons 3/5
So I expected ads and frankly it doesn't seem like the breaks are as long as other free tv apps but I really wish they would have all episodes available to stream- it is quite frustrating when the first few episodes are there but then it skips to episode 12. They need to have complete seasons, like other tv apps
It's great👍 but... 4/5
I love this app bc I can watch riverdale for freeee but my only problem is that there's only the 1, 2, 3, 12, and 13th episodes on there I would rlly like if u put all of them on there🙁😔
Great for keeping up with the shows I'm watching!
Needs all episodes 4/5
I love the app but could use all the episodes of each show And the seasons. Otherwise great!
By Rosy & Eudora
EVERYTHING IS AWESOME EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT ELEMENTARY ISN'T ON HERE :(
Stop the complaints 5/5
People get to watch shows second to first hand compared to others like netflix so no duh this was going to come with ads, it was what I expected being able to watch my favorite TV show for free. I hadn't had any problems but ads like other people, but if you decide to time it, this free app and episodes is the same as the free episodes you would watch on TV, both ending up lasting an hour long with about 4-5 commercial breaks each probably being about 3-4 minutes long, making a total of a 15 minute ad break for a 45 minute episode. My parents got ride of cable and Netflix cause of our circumstances and it annoys me now of seeing people complaining what they have for a great deal. Watching episodes the day after for as long as you want for up to 4-5 weeks, for free?!?. My parents said that nothing in life comes easy and neither does this... But it's just ads for 3 minutes, what makes this different than your tv.
Live stream 1/5
Needs a live stream option like abc but otherwise is great
Doesn't work anymore 1/5
When I first got this app, I used to be able to cast older episodes to Chrome Cast. Didn't mind the commercials as long as I could see episodes on my TV. Don't know what they did or why, but it no longer casts to my TV. It connects initially, then just freezes on the rotating circle. So it is useless to me. It is really a zero star app but I give it a single star because I wanted to get this review on record and until it starts working like it used to.
The shows won't load so I won't be able to watch
Too many ads and takes to long to load 1/5
This app has way too many ads and it takes way too long to load. It takes me hours to watch just one episode. I use to be able to watch my fave shows on Hulu which would work way faster but since they've been taken away from Hulu it takes me longer to watch my fave shows because I can't watch them anywhere else but here 😡
Won't work 5/5
i keep on trying to go into the app but it keeps on bringing me back to the home screen.pls fix this bug.🙁
Great on Apple TV 5/5
It's a pretty good app to use on Apple TV, would be nice to have live tv included. Just a thought though.
Terrible app, too many bugs!! 1/5
For those who have gotten this to work with Chromecast, consider yourself lucky. I have Chromecast I'm in electronics technician and it doesn't work for me worth a crap. If you're lucky to get the movie started, it drops out..
Too bad 1/5
The baddest thing ever I can't see any shows I need to pay I will go watch it on 123movies
Update made it worse 2/5
The app was working fine but after I updated it doesn't open anything
Will not cast! 1/5
Garbage. Fails at the very thing it's supposed to do. Developers say they are aware of it but somehow managed to only get it working for Android. There are thousands of Android makes and models out there, and only one iPhone. How does it get fixed for Android first????
Won't cast 2/5
Refuses to cast to
My chrome cast. NBC, abc, Netflix all work.
Problem with Chromecast 2/5
By Anonymous RV
Connection with Chromecast keeps dropping when I try to play an episode. Never had that problem before. Hope this gets fixed soon! I'm trying to catch up on iZombie.
By Right house app
Great App. Needs Improvement 4/5
*You don't have to sign in to your current provider.
*I have a Samsung SmartTV but the app isn't available.
*This app should also allow you to connect your phone & the app to SmartTVs. This way you can view the episodes on TV.
Like all other viewing apps. Hulu & Netflix.
Other episodes? 3/5
I love this app and it's great for watching newer episodes of shows! The thing is I have wanted to start watching riverdale and when I saw it was on the app for free I was so excited... but I can only find episodes 1-3 and then episodes 12 and 13. I really want to continue watching and not have to pay for it. Is this just because I can't find the episodes or is the app just used so people can watch the newer episodes?
APp crashes upon launch every time 1/5
Every single time I've tried to open this app it has crashed... Every time
Chromecast issues 2/5
By Ms Angie
This app currently does not cast to chromecast. When selecting to cast, it will show the CW app is connected, however when you select a show to watch, you receive a spinning wheel on the television. Then after a while it drops the connection and reverts back to your default chromecast screen - it does not even go back to the cw screen. Sometimes it will start playing the show on your phone after dropping the connection. As far as I can tell, there are no issues actually playing it on your phone but I really don't like to be in my home with an available television yet looking into my tiny phone screen to watch a show. That's just not for me so I really hope this can be fixed soon. Thanks.
This app definitely works well when you are watching episodes
Endless wait for it to load an ad 1/5
I can deal with the large number of ads. This app used to work well, but goes into an endless wait cycle trying to load an ad.
