    By Ridiculous&annoying
    Can't get through a single episode without the app crashing
  • Could be better 1/5

    By notHappyCA
    I dislike that you can't watch the whole season u only get that last few episodes that's why ppl download the show instead of watching it on the app I'm deleting this app don't recommend downloading it unless u just need the last 2 ep of a show
  • Update chapters 4/5

    By Nluerain2808
    Please update chapters for The Originals and Reign (Friday May 26/2017)
  • App Bug 3/5

    By Kadeopoto
    All of the shows used to work great, but now I can't watch any of the episodes because it says there is a "server error". Please get this fixed quickly.
  • Opinions 5/5

    By batbsgf12
    I like this app a lot and that only things that bother me is that you can only watch the latest episodes and the earlier ones get executed so you won't know much about what happened before in the series, other wise the app is amazing👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
  • Love the app 5/5

    By Redddddddoo
    It's really helpful
  • The app 2/5

    By Chelseaj777
    I like the app but at least when it was in Hulu you could watch the first episodes over but they don't come back on there is too many commercials more than on regular tv on Hulu you could buy the feature where there wasn't any commercials the app isn't really easy to navigate as well but I have to use it bc I can't watch my shows other wise
  • I can't get rid of subtitle and can't pause anymore plz help 3/5

    By Hunter p goans
    At first I thought it was the app generation subtitles but it wasn't they're just there for some reason and I can pause my shows anymore
  • I really like this app.........but 2/5

    By 4WildMonkeyS
    We just lost our cable & I am so thankful I don't need to miss my favorite shows. Thank you, CW. Although I think we all like our shows to just flow. The glitches are a bit too much.
  • Bad... Just bad. 2/5

    By Clover1993
    Streaming quality is lousy and how they only keep only a few episodes at a time makes it almost impossible to catch up if you miss one or two. Why only have episodes from October more than the latest? Why do they delete the latest? It's stupid.
  • Fix the sound 1/5

    By Kbronsito80
    Commercials are ridiculously louder than shows. There's no need for that.
  • I hate you.... 1/5

    By AquaticKestral
    I hate you so much.... Terrible, terrible app. Commercials every 5 minutes, pausing, buffering, crashing. Pure, unrefined garbage.... I wish I could write a letter to everyone who tries to watch your shows and apologize on your behalf.
  • Volume level of commercials 1/5

    By RonJoT
    It's ridiculous that the volume level isn't consistent between the program and the commercials. This affects the ap on the Apple TV as well. Please fix ASAP!!
  • Pros and cons 1/5

    By Anon-4764237942120
    Pro: this is the best app to watch commercials on. They never lag or buffer or skip, and with about 4 per break I feel like I'm really watching tv Con: this is the worst app to actually watch your content on. Fails to reach server, buffering issues, the show will "resume" where you left off but put you a segment earlier then you wanted...but then you get watch two doses of those high quality commercials to catch you up to speed, right before the app crashes and you get to do it again. 40 min shows with 1hr of commercials. I'd give it less stars if I could.
  • I love it 5/5

    By Godspeed466
    This app is the best I get to watch the flash and the arrow.
  • Doesn't go far back 2/5

    By MadyAOT
    I am trying to watch Supernatural but the last episode they put on there was episode 19. There should be a section for all the already aired episodes as some people are still far behind in the current season.
  • CC 1/5

    By Moj6968
    There seems to be a problem I can't turn off the closed caption. It's extremely annoying. After watching more of arrow. They have screwed up so much more in this app. It was fine b4 the update. All they did was make it worse. So 3 stars down to 1
  • Server Errors 5/5

    By Rachel_1998
    Since the new update, none of the videos work - it gives a "Server Error - Unable to play this video." message.
  • No pause button?!?! 2/5

    By cpragman
    This latest version took away the pause button. Seriously? If you rotate the screen ever during playback, the pause button disappears, and never comes back. If you are in the middle of an episode and need to pause, the only thing you can do it hit "done". After hitting "done" the app goes to a black screen with a spinning pinwheel and never recovers... Also the advertisements are pretty annoyong, particularly when it shows you the same ad 4 times during a commercial break. Right now, there only seem to be about 6 ads in their rotation, and all but one of them is just an ad for another CW show.
  • Love it 5/5

    By Barb0875
    Awesome app you need to fix your servers I can't watch anything today
  • Can't find video quality 1/5

    By oButterBot
    Trying to watch movies with limited data plan on my phone, cant find quality control so show isn't in HD and eating all my data. Downloaded app and deleted 5 minutes later.
  • Was good, now broken. 1/5

    By Breaking in stories.
    Crashes. Audio only while connected to highest speed wifi? Stop trying to make it better and fix it! Now the mysterious server error?
  • Awful with FireTV 1/5

    By joejvitale
    This app is unwatchable on my fire tv. Video freezes multiple times and have to reset app so I've given up. Now, my only choice is to launch on my iPad and casting it to my chromecast which works fine. Needs to be rebuilt from the ground up. This is the only app I have trouble with at all.
  • Problem 5/5

    By Jason Westenberger
    I love the app but with the latest update I can't get arrow to play properly heck it won't even load. Yesterday it worked fine with the show and today it does not want to load what do I do
  • New update fail 1/5

    By jdieud
    Worked fine until latest update. Now app cannot see the server and is completely nonfunctional. Would like an undo or an opt out for upgrades.
  • Frustrated 3/5

    By walizabeth
    I really love this app because I can watch shows that I have missed during the week. I missed the Arrow season finale, but it will not let me watch on the app. It keeps saying server error for that episode, but I can watch everything else except that episode.
  • App not working 2/5

    By brscwms
    During the most vital period of your most popular shows biggest season finale.
  • Fix the bugs 2/5

    By Nicole 2731
    For some reason I can't load up episodes for what ever reason ever time I click on it , it's says server error so I don't know what to do I guess to try on my Xbox hop that's works maybe .
  • New update faulty 1/5

    By Customer257$gdhuytg
    Before the recent update, I could play at two episodes of any show before glitches occurred 10 minutes in the third episode. Now it glitches every several minutes or so depending on the program. It turned itself off at twice while watching The Flash and least five times when I attempted watching Supergirl. Please do a better update.
  • Disappointed 2/5

    By Ally04car
    App works good. However I am sorely disappointed with the upcoming fall seasons. All drama.... no syfy, fantasy excitement.... which is what has drawn me to most of the CW shows I love. I have nothing that'll interest me / watch all fall!!! 😢
  • Great for watching shows, but... 4/5

    By Imadisney
    I've used this app to keep up with my favorite shows, but why are there all of a sudden subtitles on everything I watch? I don't even have them turned on!
  • Update fail 2/5

    By GrantedLife
    I had no problems with the previous version. But this version gave me closed captions no matter what I did. I'm glad you have CC as an option, just not a non-optional thing.
  • Great app but... 4/5

    By JTROCKER117
    This is a great app but I wish they would make the app available on PlayStation systems
  • Great app but misleading 3/5

    By Antonio2113
    On the Apple TV version of this app, a new tab appeared stating "Live". Thinking that the app finally added live TV support, I clicked on it and it's just a live stream of puppies. As adorable as puppies are, you should list the option as "Live" since every other app that has the same labeled tab allows you to watch live programming.
  • Bugs 3/5

    By Alpha696974
    The new update needs bugs fixed. The pause button disappears and in order to get the pause button to reappear you need to touch the little white bubble on the timeline for the episode and also if you do the 10 second back button right as it comes beck from commercials you have to rewatch the same commercials over again where you didn't have to previously.
  • Needs to be improved Full screen functionality 3/5

    By Karthikeyansa
    I have a problem when I am casting to android tv ... it is not showing full screen mode .. it's showing just 85% tv screen size .. please rectify this issue
  • I'm really ticked 1/5

    By Antithesis666
    We have the cw app and we love watching shows on it. But lately everytime we go to watch a show on there the screen freezes and the sound gets all screwed up. Like it's running on a extreme high speed. It sounds very distorted and completely unwatchable. Then the app crashes. This has happened for the last two weeks straight. If it does play the show we lose part of the episode or it shows the show going in fast forward with no sound, then it crashes! Please get this fixed!
  • What's up 1/5

    By Wylderklein
    You just had a new update. The app was working fine before, I was in the middle of a show. After updating I can no longer play any stinking episodes. I hope this is a quick fix. I don't want to miss out on the end of my season all due to some goofy update
  • Adding Live 5/5

    By Jaliyah F.
    The CW app is the perfect place to watch all of my shows. But maybe you guys can add a 'Live' feature. Where you can watch the shows that are on at that moment, right from the app!
  • Supergirl!! 4/5

    By Fundig46
    I love the tv show supergirl. But it's so annoying how u can only watch the latest episodes.
  • CW app problems 2/5

    By BULLETMAGNET
    This App has a problem with volume level. The volume of the adds vs the show being shown is so high that you need to mute your speakers. Until this is fixed cannot recommend this app. Be extremely careful if you have a 5.1 system it can damage speakers.
  • Need a sign in 2/5

    By Thrive is rip off
    I have multiple devices that I switch between and i hate that I can't just pick up where I left off. Do something about this!!!!!!!
  • Super buggy! 1/5

    By Missla14
    I've had this app quit on me for seemingly no reason whatsoever on several occasions. Then when it quits on you in the middle of an episode, your only option really is to start over from the beginning - forget fast forwarding to the spot where it stopped. All it'll do is play a bunch of ads before buffering for forever until you give up and just watch from the beginning again. CW, if you're going to pull your current episodes from Hulu, at least have a decent app replacement for your followers to use. This is pathetic.
  • Allow users to disable Auto Play 2/5

    By Androo212
    Overall the app works well and the commercials are understandable since you are bringing OTA tv to us for free. The apps biggest defect, and it is a big one, is the lack of a setting to disable AutoPlay. It's very frustrating to be watching The Flash and the have a show I don't watch start playing because I didn't exit quick enough.
  • Crashes 1/5

    By O2bird
    Have reinstalled the app but it continues to crash every time I click on the arrow to watch an episode. It immediately shuts down the app.
  • Crap app 1/5

    By Uneildown
    Always crashes they need to update.
  • Great 4/5

    By Tommysgirl04
    I love this app to keep up with my shows instead waiting for the tv😊😊☺️
  • Unusable as is 1/5

    By Nomad1985
    Kudos to CW for releasing an app to watch their shows for free. But the implementation isn't usable. Episodes expire. And for what purpose? I binge watched past seasons on Netflix, and would have continued watching the current season on CW, but the earlier episodes already expired. It's not available to stream anywhere online (legally), so that means I either have to start mid season, or wait until it's over and watch the whole season. The commercials are awful. There are too many, and too frequent, and they're all the same. By the second episode I can already quote every commercial word for word. Maybe I'm just spoiled by other commercial free services, but it's at the point where watching a show isn't relaxing anymore. Instead I'm trying to think of ways to be productive during the excessive commerical time so I don't waste my entire day in front of the TV. Please reduce the commercials, or offer a paid commercial free version. And please stop expiring episodes. I love the shows, but I won't use the app until this changes.
