The CW app reviews

  • Slow and can't keep internet connection 2/5

    By JAB2015
    I love watching Crazy Ex-Girlfriend... but now that the CW isn't letting Hulu have its show on anymore I've been forced to use this app. It freezes, the closed captioning is always on and has to be turned off (when the app actually responds to hitting the button to try to turn it off), and when I watch CEG, I have to restart the show over and over (6 times today so far) as it freezes and then I watch the same ads over and over and over. I bet I watch the same number of minutes of ads as I watch the show. Go back to Hulu. I'm about to give up on this show and just wait for it to come out on Netflix.
  • The app is great but 3/5

    By Kate Musgrave
    Honestly it think the app is great but it's won't let me see any shows anymore. The Who thing is black.
  • Pretty good but could be better 3/5

    By KD7654
    I really do like this app, but there is room for improvement. I took away one star for not having all previous episodes from the current season up and one star for not being able to airdrop to the television. I can't stand watching these shows on my iPad when I have a bigger screen right in front of me. It is nice to be able to watch some of the episodes I missed though.
  • No CC support on Apple TV 1/5

    By Labtech11
    CW app through Apple TV works fine for watching shows, I have no issues with that. However, it crashes whenever I try to turn on closed captioning. For someone hearing impaired, it's essentially unwatchable. Please fix this!
  • I want every episode 2/5

    By ThatGuyNathan6
    How come they don't have every season or every episode for a show that I want to watch? They only have a few episodes of the current season and they are just random episodes. Make me mad.
  • So far so good 5/5

    By picketata
    I have not updated the app yet. So far it's doing okay. I love having the app!!! Wish they would come out with more episodes and shows other than super Heroes. Little over kill.
  • Garbage 1/5

    By Brittcom
    This app is a right piece of garbage. I only got it to watch the current season of one show and they don't even have all of them up... They have Episodes 1-3, are missing 4-6, and then have 7 & 8. What the hell?? Now let's talk about commercials. There are a ton! And every time they come on the have to load... then the next one has to load... then the third one. THEN it reloads the whole show! You get a blip from the opening credits then it loads back to the place where you were after 30-60 seconds of loading. And then the freaking sound is like 3 seconds off from the show!! Worst viewing experience ever!! This season of Supernatural better be worth it... Oh and I forgot to mention that the 3rd commercial is often just the 1st one repeated but usually the sound is so far off in the 1st round that it's almost funny but the 2nd time around it's back to normal and therefore much more boring... and sometimes they throw in a 4th commercial just for fun...
  • Absolute garbage 1/5

    By Mdeath72
    This app has the first 2 or 3 episodes of certain shows and skips most of the season and picks up with episodes 9,10 and so on...
  • No Apple TV compatibility 1/5

    By Sboder9876
    Extremely irritated, no Apple TV support. GO BACK TO HULU CW 😡
  • Never works 1/5

    By Ryza Khan
    Always has a server error. This is my only way to watch CW shows. I'm going to delete the app and watch something on Hulu, which always works. I wish CW hadn't gotten greedy, but there you have it. Bye Arrowverse.
  • ... 2/5

    By Frostwolf5679
    I really like the app don't get me wrong, but where in heaven's name are the episodes? So I wanted to re-watch Supergirl. I finished all of season 1 in Netflix and then jumped over to the app to find, only 5 episodes. Not even in order there is episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, and 8! Where are the other episodes like really? The only way that I can watch episodes 5, 6, and 7 is by renting them? I hope that sooner or later all the episodes will be there.... I thought I was gonna be able to watch all the episodes that have played...
  • Irritated 1/5

    By Entertaining 😍😍😍
    Update: I have since just deleted the app because I could never actually use it. I keep waiting for there to be an update for them to fix the issues. I keep checking back to see if anything has changed, but it just looks like more people are having the same issues I've been having. So the app forced me to update and ever since every time I try to watch an episode the app crashes and kicks me out. Very frustrating. I have tried everything to get this to work. Some of my favorite shows are on CW but I will have to give them up if I can't keep up with the seasons because the app is so horrible.
  • The cw 5/5

    By Amira1959
    It is a greatness. It amazing I can always watch what was ecsactall was on tv. It is a great app and it never gave me problems for the past mouth and a half I was using it and anything I want to watch is on it. I could say its just an amazing app. And I would prefer this to many people out there and also my friends say its the best app ever. Also for people out there don't worry about the money it free and you can stream any were you want and watch your favorite tv shows from cw to the Cw app. But also the app has miss shows like on super girl I watch a episode and is say pervisle and I never even seen that part and trust me I. Watch every episode of the flash, the arrow , super girl and Dc leagunis of tomorrow and trustee it happens many times. But even though I don't think it,s crap or the worst app ever. At least you can catch up to the show you are missing like super girl. And I disagree with the people that think it bad hers a Question for did you watch the shows you want ? Did you get to watch what you wanted without thinking you need to pay? Sid you like how cw app let you see the shows you like? So this why I this agree with the haters
  • Improved 4/5

    By DesireaNavarro
    Improved pretty dramatically, including auto play. I can finally use the app again for catching up on episodes I've missed !
  • Poor Streaming 1/5

    By Dustypete18
    Every time I try to watch my favorite show on this app, it always freezes. I can't watch it on my chrome cast either. This app needs work- none of my other streaming apps struggle like this one.
  • Total crap 1/5

    By ShortCircuit47
    It does not open. It does not work!
  • Don't count on the 5 episode thing 2/5

    By Chaunton
    This app will show you five episodes, but they won't always be the five most recent. For example, right now (1/6/17) Supernatural only has the two most recent episodes and then three others from the beginning of the season. Supergirl only has the one most recent episode, but Vampire Diaries has all five most recent and so does Flash (but Arrow doesn't). I don't know if they are still claiming that the app shows the five most recent, but my point is that you shouldn't count on that. Also, it's probably worth pointing out that all the complaints people have about the app being crazy glitchy are also true for me. I'm really glad this app exists, because it's the only free way I have to watch the shows, but I'm really hoping they update it with some stability improvements. (Running on AppleTV 4)
  • Loading app 1/5

    By KeiraB56
    All this thing does is loading and reloading all the time. Very poor performance.
  • Doesn't work 1/5

    By ivetastic™
    Come on cw, get this app fixed please. Videos don't play and even when they play the casting never works. Other tv apps work flawlessly on my iPad so please fix this
  • User friendly 3/5

    By Bigmamasukie
    1st of all thank you for the app. But I have trouble getting back to the episodes I watched and I would love to be able to know just go to the tab for each tv show and be able to get to the season I left off and episode on your app is a little confusing cause they start with 101 or 201 and have to scroll up and down looking for the newest version. Help us out a little. And thank you again for the app when Hulu removed your shows I was upset.
  • Simple 4/5

    By Dewtzie
    Fast & easy
  • Not ready for prime time 1/5

    By Curtis not amused
    Obviously this was not an app created by a true development team. Please hire someone (no more relatives) to create a new app that can be set up quickly and actually works.
  • Perfect 5/5

    By Akatrill
    It works great and don't listen to the other reviews.
  • Broken episodes 1/5

    By Katieavrm
    Really hard to keep up with shows when they have episodes 1,2,3 then have a big gap and that picks back up at episode 8. I used to watch cw on Hulu . This app is a disappointment .
  • BEING ABLE TO CATCH UP 5/5

    By LIZZZELIZABTHEEEEEE
    I recently became very obsessed with CW's shows on Netflix and I'm almost nearing the first season of Supergirl. With this FREE APP I'll be able to catch up on at least the first couple of episodes from season 2. Thank you CW 😄 hopefully season 2 will be on Netflix very soon.
  • Adds!!!!!???!?! 4/5

    By Mario person
    Love the app but the adds are just annoying
  • Where are episodes? 3/5

    By That guy with great ideas
    My problem is some episodes are missing for instance supergirl episodes 5,6,and 7. I would like this app more if they were added and would like this changed in the future.
  • Great App 5/5

    By TVFlasharrowDCLegndFan2017
    I love this app on my phone. It has worked perfectly for me. I don't mind the commercials, I mean, I would prefer without them but it's free and I can watch the most recent episodes anytime I want.
  • TOO MANY COMMERCIALS 4/5

    By Jeny Lane
    I'd rather PAY a monthly paid subscription to remove ads........
  • No Good 1/5

    By Kruwe5
    App doesn't Work
  • One of the worst app I've used 1/5

    By Licarus
    Using this app frustrates me to no end. The number of commercials is a bit much. Combined with crappy app can't resume properly, and commercials pop up every time trying to find where it left off, it's like watching more commercials than the real show.
  • Garbage 1/5

    By T.Nerd
    Doesn't work been trying to figure out how to find the episodes I wanted but I guess they aren't on their for some reason. Freezes a lot. Needs to be fixed by someone who knows what they are doing plz.
  • It's not what they say it is 1/5

    By literallyaddictedtospotify
    I really love the Flash and on the CW channel on tv and everywhere else they claim I can watch full episodes but they really don't give you any full episodes. The only episodes available are ones I can't watch because I haven't seen the episodes before them. I wish they would make more episodes available. Otherwise, this app isn't worth getting at all.
  • Lack of PIP support 2/5

    By JhnPByr
    Keep trying guys, honestly.
  • Useless 1/5

    By @emiliano2299
    The app doesn't have all the episodes, and there are a lot of ads it sometimes freezes up I just hate it I'm just sticking to xfinitytv go app THE APP IS ONLY USEFUL IF YOUR ALL CAUGHT UP ON A TV SHOW!!!!!!!!
  • ????????? 1/5

    By Yanteé
    I go into the app and it's all black. In Home it just says "No shows available."
  • Sometimes it will show the program... 1/5

    By Rifter
    I get so frustrated by this app. I've just watched a segment of a show, and then spent 10 minutes watching ads. It wouldn't switch back to the show. I restarted the app, chose resume, and sure enough, it restarted the ads right where I left off, and didnt fire off the show. While the app's job is to show content, their only focus seems to be on ad presentation, ads never break, the shows do all the time. Months later, still going through this crap.
  • This app is trash 1/5

    By Regannnn
    Repetitive commercials and Chromecast support is bad and should feel bad. This is why people pirate things
  • Supported 5/5

    By JaredTMered
    Love the CW! Love the app but why do they not have all of the episodes? Example on Supergirl they have "e201,e202, e203 But and then it skips to e207."
  • Thank you! 5/5

    By Broookiey420
    Love it use it everyday. 🤘🏻
  • Not useful unless your caught up on episodes! 1/5

    By Wondergirl2353
    I am watching DC legends of tomorrow and I started watching it late on Netflix. When I got all updated on season one I moved to the CW app and they only have season one episode one of legends then they skip a bunch of episodes. This is so frustrating because I want to watch all of the new episodes but I can't because they don't have them on there. My friend was having the same problem with the flash because she started watching it late. CW you really need to fix this problem!
  • More episodes!!! 4/5

    By Me, Alexis
    It's a good app, runs well, but I wish that it would have all of the episodes in the latest season instead of the latest 5. Can we please see more than 5 episodes?????
  • Revised AGAIN: down 1 more star 1/5

    By rsfd
    Revision AGAIN: I just don't watch CW shows now. Rewinding and fast forwarding mean more commercials. Please give us an option to pay a monthly fee to watch EVERY episode of all seasons anytime commercial free. I'll pay. Every month. Seriously. Revision: okay, now I'm down to watching only 2 must see shows on your network. It's very painful to use this app. The commercials! The lack of features. I used to watch almost exclusively CW programming. Help!!!! Just charge for the app. Please! Original review: I understand you need to make $ and I'm ok with 2-3 commercials 2-3 times per hour episode, however... 8 commercials in the last commercial break each time I watch an episode? The same handful of commercials over and over again. Please, please do something about this. I was planning to try out your new shows this fall but now I've changed my mind. I've also decided instead of the 8 shows I normally watch from your network, I'm only going to watch 3-4 of them. I'll just have to live without the others and see what else Hulu and Netflix have to offer. I'd honestly prefer you offer a paid option. I'll pay $8 a month for full access, gladly.
  • Tinyfeet 1/5

    By Pinky Dinky 699
    Why are you guys going to take Iris off the show? Pay her some more money, it's not right, she is the first black superhero girlfriend. And she should at least have little flash and they should be allowed to marry. And build a life. Let this thing they got together work out. Don't kill her, she is a really great actress. Take the fake HR and bring the real Doctor Harry.
  • Shows👍commercials👎 3/5

    By Ndmelamfpd
    The shows are great... however I understand watching the commercials every once in a while, but every time I rewind it a little or fast forward it.. I get commercials that I have to watch and it super bothersome... please limit commercials to only every 10 minutes or something
  • HATE THE COMMERICIALS 1/5

    By Miawiia
    Remove the commercials, they're the same over and over and interrupt the show so much. Hate it.
  • !! 2/5

    By Tarannom gorji
    Is this only MY problem? I can not load the app ,Search or anything. Is it limited for just some countrys?
  • Crashes 1/5

    By Nicoleeeer
    This app crashes nonstop I am unable to watch anything
  • Please stop with the app 1/5

    By demonology27
    Just offer your own streaming service like your parent company CBS is doing. Make the investment and ditch the cable companies because a lot of your audience has already done it. I've binge watched a lot of your series on Netflix, but have to wait almost a year for the current season to become available. This free app with limited content is like a half hearted attempt. Go the full mile, people will pay because you guys have good shows :)
  • Every thing is wrong 1/5

    By Aintmybaby69
    This app does not deserve a star anymore before it uses to be really good and every thing use to work well now when I go on the app the only thing I can do is see the different videos because every time I try to watch something, it just crash that is literally every single time. So I haven't been able to watch any trials or videos for the shows I watch.
