Helpful review 5/5
Great app, easily accessible, great shows. Sometimes runs slow but I don't if it's the wifi or the app.
Almost Perfect! 4/5
This is an amazing app. It lets me watch any show anytime for free! Except that's not exactly the case... The app is amazing but it has one underlying flaw. You can only watch the latest 5 episodes of a tv show. Let's say you wanted to start a show from the beginning because it looks like a good show, you would not be able to. Apart from this, the app is amazing! Thanks for reading!
PLEASE READ 5/5
This app is great! I downloaded it not to long ago and already I’m having difficulty. When I try to watch the new Riverdale episodes I can’t scroll down!! Please fix this
I loveeeeeee it but the only thing is that I can't watch ep 1 s1 of a serie. But still I loveee it❤️💋❤️💋❤️💋❤️💋
It good but not great 4/5
By Sara Hollister
I want to watch previous shows of the flash, but it didn't have them.but other than that the app is great🙂
Great app but needs one more feature 3/5
Love this app. Love the TV app integration so that I never miss an episode, but the app seriously needs auto play controls. I accidentally fell asleep off of WiFi but my phone continued to play shows. Basically Supergirl episode 2-7 and burned through my data. Would love to have turned off auto play so I watch just one then done.
Great but… 3/5
Love the clear picture and sound quality is excellent.. only problem.
Ads on overkill
The farther into the episode the less I’m actually watching the show and more of watching the ads. The worst part is that the ads are on repeat. So you get the same ads over and over. There needs to be less ads or a no ads option.
It's pretty good 4/5

I really like this app! There's just not a lot to choose from...
By Aly Starfishing
WHY DO THEY HAVE ALL THE EPISODES OM SEASON 2 FOR RIVERDALE BUT NOT EPISODE 1?!?!?! I WISH SEASON 2 WAS ON NETFLIX
One of the Worst TV APS 1/5
Looks pretty but bogged down with commercials. Loses connection often can't skip forward a little bit without watching a commercial.
I swear. When my DVR fouls up for Arrow or Flash and I realize I have to watch the CW app I can literally feel myself get sick knowing I have to wrestle with the app for 90 minutes to watch a 50 minute show.
Love this app but please no ads
By C͟ s͟k͟e͟t͟c͟h͟i͟e͟r͟
Every single time I go on the app it says “ sever error” when my WiFi is fine and everything is working the the f*ck is wrong
Love the app! 5/5
Jane the Virgin ❤️ & Riverdale❤️
Stuck with subtitles 2/5
Just loaded this hoping to catch up on Arrow as a cord-cutter, and on relatively new hardware (iPad Pro 9.7) I’m stuck with subtitles I can’t turn off. I wouldn’t even mind watching the ads, but the subtitle bug is too much. Sorry, guys. Fix it and it’ll be a 4-5 star rating.
It keeps crashing and it won’t let me use it. I just want to watch riverdale! I have an updated IPhone 6s.
cable subscription login 1/5
We prefer that to watch live programming when we don’t have a tv. Pls make it happen
Won’t let me watch 1/5
When I get into the app and try to watch something it says theres an error so I shut my phone off then turned it on but it’s still saying there is an error so I deleted it and got it again but still will not work
Love this app,but can be annoying. 4/5
I really love this app. I think it is amazing because it prod-cast some of my favorite shows.But the only thing is if a show is coming out at 8/7c it comes at 10pm sometimes. And it’s just annoying cause I don’t know what time the shows I want to watch are going to be shown. But over all I really love this app ❤️!!!
Too many bugs 3/5
It is very difficult to use this app with airplay to my Apple TV. It crashes every few minutes then I have to watch several commercials over again to start it again.
CW app show nothing to me! 1/5
Hi.please explain me why your app nothing show in its first page and all parts of app I can’t watch nothing and my favorites tv series
Nice app but 3/5
By katy reza
There has been some issues like when im watching this on my ipad it just turns it off out of no where and i cant connect it to my TV so please fix this
App closes every 5-10 minutes 1/5
By I really hate this app
This app has been awful to use. I can’t even get through ten minutes of a show without the app just all of a sudden closing. Not sure what the problem is but I have the most recent version of this app so I can’t blame it on the need to be updated. I’m super unhappy with this app.
Could be better 4/5
For iPhone X I am having issues with pulling down settings while the app is running in case I want to adjust the brightness or turn on WiFi. I have to close the app in order to get the swipe down to work. Also the home bar while watching is a bright white. I kinda would like to see if fade while watching a video to avoid potential burn in.
It’s AMAZING but.. 4/5
I really love CW it’s amazing it has the TV shows you don’t have on Netflix or Hulu etc.. but the thing is they should keep the episodes a little longer for example riverdale season 2 episode 1. Just at least have it for 2 weeks more or so. I really really like the app tho. Spot on (;
My phone is old and I can't update it past like iOS 10 when I try to watch it just says server problem
Keeps crashing 3/5
I can’t get through a full episode of anything. It’s not my WiFi! ): kinda bummed
Broken Cast 1/5
CW could you please fix the chrome cast on your phone app and web site. It hasn’t been working all week and I’m missing out on my shows
Service is great! App is craptastic. 2/5
Have to leave the iPad screen open to lean back onto the TV, and it LAGS SOOO BAD!!!!
This app used to be my favorite, but recently its been crashing WAY too much. The screen went black then closed the app a total of 8 times during the duration of o e episode. I absolutely love the CW shows but are they really worth this much aggravation?
It's great and I love watching the free shows on there(Riverdale especially) but the ads are really bugging me. Yes, I understand in order to keep it free, there has to be ads, but I'm getting a multitude of ads a lot in one episode. In the beginning, it had over five or six ads, possibly more, in the same ad break. But besides that, it's a good app.
Love it 5/5
The best tv app. Sure, there’s ads, but it’s free, they post the episode next day so you can catch up w the next episode on tv easily unlike other apps that make you wait til the day after the next episode, and it hardly ever messes up while streaming. If it does, you can still resume where you left off.
Why would the CW app not put the first episode of the second season of a show on the app. It doesn’t make any since if they don’t want us to watch it from the beginning we should watch it all. I got the app to watch Riverdale and now i can’t watch it all so thank you CW app for wasting my time.
Would be stellar if the dumb shows would load on chromecast. Would love to not be staring at an endless loading circle.
Does not even load 1/5
Open, see brief intro. Then closes.
Love it!! Just wish there wasn't SO many commercials! 4/5
Love The CW app!! They have the BEST shows!!! I just wish they didn't have as many commercials, and that you could watch the show the same day it airs!!
Subtitles always 3/5
By Perpetual kllr
Subtitles are always showing. When I tap the CC button, another set of subtitles show in a different font. :/
I just got this app and I really wanted to watch riverdale! I clicked an episode and it began to lode and then it said unable to lode! Plsssss help!
Episodes expire 1/5
Why do you expire show episodes? I went to catch up on season 3 of Supergirl and episode 1 has “expired” and isn’t available anymore. This is nonsense.
CRASHES SO MUCH 1/5
Seriously impossible to watch even one episode.
Works great! I downloaded this when I was in Miami for vacation and will keep to continue to watch at work! #ILoveSupernatural #Winchester
Great app, but crashes on iPhone 8. 3/5
I love this app, but please update it, because I can’t get into the app without it crashing.
Please fix it is not full screen for the CW app I love all the shows just wish it was full screened when I use it
They actually listened!!! 4/5
The shows that air on this app have about 5 or 6 commercial breaks. Each break has about 3 commercials and they are normal length. Even though some CW program commercials repeat that is understandable they want us to watch their shows. I just watched a show and didn't see the same non-CW commercial more than once or twice.
CW needs the commercials to keep these episodes free to watch. However, they listened when people complained about how the play bar was staying on screen, the fact that commercial breaks were showing the same commercials over and over again, and there were too many commercials per break.
I am more than happy to support a company that doesn't try to take advantage of mobile users when their desktop or laptop website gives viewers an easier experience.
Well done CW.
The ads constantly buffer, and the actual quality is ugly. Makes trying to watch Supernatural a nightmare.
Super Buggy 1/5
Same commercials play over and over and it's constantly buffering, I've downloaded the app to tv, phone, tablet, Xbox and PlayStation, doing the same thing on all the devices. Re-up your contract with Hulu please! The streaming was much better.
Commercial spoilers 3/5
I really like that I can watch all of my favorite shows. Just remember to stay current and don’t binge- the commercials are for the current episode and 90% contain spoilers. Be warned!!
It’s a great app but it would be better if I could stream it to my tv
Nonstop ads 2/5
I understand that this is a free app, but does that mean there has to be ads every 5 minutes? And really lengthy, repetitive, annoying ads at that. Relax with the advertisements, it's obnoxious!
Entirely Stopped Working for Me 1/5
I used to use The CW app all the time and it was a pretty smooth experience. A couple of months ago it just stopped functioning. It crashes immediately after loading, every time. I keep coming back and trying again to see if it’s been fixed. It won’t run on my phone or iPad. Frustrating and disappointing, especially since my DirecTV app doesn’t seem to have all this seasons episodes of the shows I want to watch.
