The CW app reviews

  • The 100 1/5

    By jessrichards12
    About ready to delete app because what is the point of an app if you can't watch all the episodes. For season four of the 100, it has all the episodes but episode two and episode three. Why those are not on there I will never know but I'm about ready to delete the app because it's pointless. If you're going to say you can watch them on the app then you better have all the episodes. I don't know if you should download this app or not terrible.
  • I can never actually watch anything! 1/5

    By LeahA.G.
    I got the app because the website doesn't work on my phone or iPad but the app doesn't work at all. I can only watch previews for upcoming episodes of show but not the actual show. Either fix the app or let me watch it on the website on my devices because this is terrible!
  • What an awesome new take on television!!! 5/5

    By AkJen87
    I must say, with the way tv has been going, I often wonder why I am watching, WHAT I am watching. There are a lot of channels now a days, and each has a multitude of shows. However, you have refrained from exploiting the stereotypical life. You continue to make realistic fiction. That is not something that is happening anymore. This is not a review for your CEO, it is a review for your writers.Smart intelligent writing does not happen every day, please continue to do what you do and I pray that your CEOs, understand that is why your network has the ratings it does.
  • Way way too many commercials, more than show 1/5

    By MoiMoi88
    So very many repetitive commercials, every few minutes it's the same commercials over and over again, there are literally more commercials than there is show. I would rather watch commercial-free on a share site....cause is totally short sighted and greedy and dumb.
  • Soooooo many commercials 1/5

    By JROG7
    Could there be more commercials on an app? It seems like there is more commercials than shows...and when they don't have enough, they just play the same commercial twice in a row! Frustrating!!
  • Disappointed 2/5

    By Nan@55
    Too many commercials, every 5-7 minutes
  • Very sometime-y 2/5

    By 4luvomusic
    Usually I get a spinning wheel that goes nowhere. Occasionally it actually works. It's very unreliable and disappointing.
  • TERRIBLE!! 1/5

    By Nelmar12
    Don't have any problem with any other prime time app but this one!! Won't let me stream anything!!.. What the hell is going on CW??
  • Frustrating 1/5

    By Brynjnkns
    The app crashes repeatedly and makes it a hassle to watch shows. Not to mention the same commercials over and over again. It makes me second guess whether I want to watch these shows or not
  • Very well done 5/5

    By BrowsApps
    The app is on point. Very fluid movements and very aesthetic app. Would not expect this for free, yet it is.
  • Love the app 5/5

    By Thebrickboy00
    5/5
  • Worst of any network app 1/5

    By Outdoor gear
    Standard definition that does not even buffer. No other networks app has this issue. A few shows did not air on DIRECTV. Cannot go back and watch or get them on dtv. Shows are also becoming something you cannot watch with kids. Ready to give up on the CW!
  • Best Network, hands down!! 5/5

    By RonnieJr
    I must say that the CW is by far the best network with all the best shows, keep this up and you'll be bigger then all the others combined!! Also, THE ORIGINALS "well done this season, this is the way it should be, please don't end it, this is the best season yet, finally, the Klaus I've always knew was there" Well done writers,producers,directors, and especially Actors & Actresses" PERFECT!!
  • Review 1/5

    By Lixmysnix
    I am astonished that your app can play ads over and over again, but as a paying customer I have to ask- why isn't it playing my show? Big old goose egg on this app. If I could rate zero I would.
  • Rate 3/5

    By JG360
    I love this app but for some reason it's not letting me see supernaturals last episode I'm a big supernatural and flash fan I also love the arrow and when I'm at work and I miss the show I love to try and catch up on them but for some reason it's not letting me catch up, supernatural so maybe you can do something to improve this
  • Buffering/freezing issues 2/5

    By duhitskat
    I would rate this app 5 stars if it didn't have buffering/freezing problems. (Actually I get the same experience on the website and fire tv app as well.) The video stops playing roughly every 5 mins. Video looks like it's buffering but never starts playing again no matter how long I let it sit there. I have to quit the app and restart the app and hope the player remembered where I left off. It seems like a 50/50 shot that my place gets saved. Can't watch a single show in one sitting because of this. It's really frustrating. I know it's not my internet service because I have 100mb/s and I've done speed tests and it says I have "fast internet" that can handle multiple devices streaming.
  • Best app 5/5

    By Rube2105
    Best app for non cable havers and superhero lovers
  • Crashing 1/5

    By D1ubluvn
    I watch a show on this app and every time it goes to commercial it crashes and goes back to my home screen and I have to start it over again.
  • No more Jane the Virgin Ads PLEASE 2/5

    By Queen Victoria I
    I really like this app but omg I'm NEVER going to watch Jane the Virgin. There are so many friggin ads for it and 'sex sex sex' give me and my family trying to watch Flash and Arrow a break.
  • Slow 2/5

    By Skyagrey
    Sometimes the app works really well and other times it takes forever for the shows to load.... they finally do load they can be glitchy. It's pretty frustrating.
  • Grr 1/5

    By Sweetzjeanie
    Everytime I try to watch an episode, it crashes during the episode. I've tried everything I can think of, and it still continues.
  • Review 5/5

    By Sierrame342
    This is a good app and my favorite show was VAMPIRE DIARIES๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  • Amazing 4/5

    By Willkell25337
    It's a great app, I like all of the DC on the CW shows, but my schedule prevents me from watching them live so this app is perfect for that, however it could improve a couple aspects in my opinion.
  • STOP FORCING ME TO UPDATE 1/5

    By SEA_Sounder2010
    I have an older iPhone and before I started downloading the app, got a message to get an older version. But when it finished downloading, a message says to get newest version and I can't decline it. Now I can't use the only version that would work on my phone. Fix it please. I'd really like to use this app.
  • Where is it? 1/5

    By Hviesca
    I stream it to my TV and it shows up well, for 1/2 the show! Then it cuts off. Then I can't get back on to watch the rest of it. Until I clear it. It's NOT my tv because it does the same thing on the other tv's and my Apple TV's.
  • Can't watch 3/5

    By BoosterPlatinumUsmc
    I'm over seas and I can't watch anything why is this
  • Great Free No Account App 5/5

    By TheBlueHoodX
    It is an amazing app! I get to watch all my favorite shows for FREE, and have NO ACCOUNT!! Definitely a must have app if you are a DC fan or just a fan of Sick or even a comedy lover. Best shows in great HD quality and short ads here and there, but a great app! You even get notifications for your favorite shows so you don't miss them, and let's you resume your episodes! A perfect free app! I really recommend the CW app!
  • Love it!!!โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ 5/5

    By Catwoman@heart
    This app is free and has great quality and you don't have to hook up to your t.v provider most people don't even have cable. A few or so adds can't change the fact that this is a awesome deal.
  • No new shows 2/5

    By Divinedij
    I've been waiting for new Jane the Virgin episodes to be uploaded but it's been almost a month now and there are no new episodes and I know the show is still on air
  • Meh! 1/5

    By smark71
    Waaaaayyyyy too many commercials in just one episode, not to mention they're all the same. Even worse, they're seasonal ads that are no long relevant. I'm OK with a commercial or two like on Hulu, but this is excessive. CW shows are that good to start with, so why would I stick with any of them if I have to suffer through more commercials than actual content??? Get with the times, CW; quality over quantity!!
  • Apple TV app experiences error 1/5

    By hoorayberet00
    I constantly receive the error "stream failed to load" on the Apple TV app.
  • A WASTE OF UR TIME 1/5

    By Ella in Greek
    Don't download: Unless you want to watch more commercials than the story, don't mind having the app crash several times during an episode,& enjoy dialogue that doesn't sync properly. CW used to be good, what happened?
  • Commercials 2/5

    By kfry69
    If I wanted to watch commercials I would turn on the television.๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป Missing episodes ...
  • Commercials ruin the experience -found workaround 1/5

    By DreamBig19(me)
    If the commercials are destroying the shows you watch (literally can't stand watching the same ones over and over every few minutes), just close out the app when a commercial comes on and reopen app. Click on show and hit resume and it takes u to the show. I'm willing to do this as I would stop watching CW shows otherwise. App is horrendous. Quits randomly and can't fast forward or rewind without major issue AND rewatching commercials. No it's not like watching on tv. On tv at least there are random commercials. Other apps have commercials and they don't bother me as they aren't so frequent and the same ones. Listen to your viewers or you'll lose them. Not showing much appreciation for the ppl that keep you in business.
  • Too Busy 1/5

    By raygg
    Just went to CW app for first time - as I wanted to allow my 6 yrold watch episodes of Fool Us Penn n Teller magic show. Had to scroll thru scary depressing pix from spooky shows and could not find any altho on the interest webpage CW advertises them to be there. I want a list - then i want to click on list to get to show. This app too spooky and scary to allow my 6yo to use on ipad, and without a quickref list to point to show I seek, I consider it poorly organized at the expense of pushing scariness darkness and spookiness. No wonder CW is so low in ratings. Fool Us is only show we have watched or DVRd on CW in years. I give it a 15 on a scale of 100 and I cant dance to it.
  • LOVE IT BUT... 5/5

    By Its good so far butt
    It needs too have movies on there too.
  • No commercial plan please 2/5

    By Tbenson0628
    I will PAY to not watch commercials. Especially ones that repeat over and over, back to back. Ugh! Bring me a subscription please! I pay extra on hulu, JUST for no commercials. Please!! I love all my CW shows and ill keep watching. But PLEASE! Bring me a subscription so i dont have to waste time on commercials.
  • Probably the worst app you can download 1/5

    By Jonathan0226
    I love that you can watch the shows for free but it's such a pathetic app that it almost makes you want to pay for cable with the amount of repeat commercials it plays and how often it glitches when watching your show.
  • Fast loading 5/5

    By ginnamor
    Great app
  • Exactly what Kymeryka said 1/5

    By Lu sir facรจ
    Streaming quality is so frustrating
  • Sick of it 1/5

    By Thatviiibee
    The CW app has way to many ads for any show to be enjoyable. The ads take away from the show, honestly alot better to watch on Netflix
  • Commercials are not appropriate for family shows 1/5

    By RueJess
    Flash is a family show but yet I have to have my kids turn away so they don't see the trailer for RAW. This is rediculous!!! Why would you okay this during a family show??? Please go back to Hulu so I have control over this.
  • Like watching commercials? 1/5

    By Jarofett
    If commercials are your jam, your bread and butter, your favorite past time, your only friend then you will love this app...
  • Google Cast does not work! App is not available on most other platforms. 3/5

    By NightmareX23
    The app works very well on my iOS devices; iPhone 6S Plus and iPad Air. But the real drawback is the inability to cast from the app to my tv, a 2015 Sony BRAVIA 4K w/ Andriod TV OS and ChromeCast. The CW should either make a app in the Google Play Store for Andriod TV or an app for consoles; a PS4 app would be nice.
  • Autoplay and Subtitles 4/5

    By shawnli1987
    The app works fine on Apple TV, for the most part. There should, however, be an option to turn off autoplay. Also, subtitles have to be turned on each time a new video starts.
  • annoying!! 2/5

    By queen0fpizza
    Good app for watching shows for when you don't have cable or you've missed a few episodes of your favorite show, but continues to crash more than 5 times through one episode and I must restart the app and choose my show and episode again. Really annoying, please fix.
  • CW App Needs Improvment 2/5

    By JycRenee
    The app lets me access new episodes of my favorite shows which I love, however sometimes the show I'm watching"messes up". And by that I mean it has to pause for several seconds up to a minute to buffer I guess? And then when it comes back it's not always HD clear. However every single commercial that plays is HD clear with no delay. That's unacceptable. It's 2017 for God's sake and if you want to compete in the app world you need to offer your show at a higher quality than the commercials or at least the same quality I mean come on. You need to charge 5, 7 even 10 bucks a month whatever I think people might be down with that especially those who don't have cable then you could watch all your favorite CW shows without having to have a cable service. Customer satisfaction. It used to be the thing that drove the economy like 10 years ago hopefully will get back to that one day we'll see.
  • Cw app 5/5

    By Phibb1
    Ok company thank you so much for fixing app thank you
  • Unstable and unreliable 1/5

    By Froganator
    The program crashes often especially when a commercial starts. They need to return to Hulu or another streaming service that work.
  • Love it 5/5

    By Jumpy banna
    I love all of the shows I think it's absolutely perfect! ๐Ÿ˜Š
