The CW app reviews

  • Esp... 3/5

    By Miguel Angel Duran Sotelo
    Sub Spanish Please!🙏🏼🥰
  • Decent app 4/5

    By Belle Morte 2086
    I like that I’m able to watch old shows. The entire show. Honestly my only complaint is that there’s so many commercials and they’re repetitive.
  • The flash 5/5

    By kash620b
    I love that I can watch all my favorite shows for free. Thank you so much CW.
  • Decent app 2/5

    By 🧍🏽👨🏽‍🦯👶🏼
    Good app and all its just that there is to much ads every like 10 minutes
  • A lot of commercials 3/5

    By where is that iCarly
    There’s so many commercials it’s really annoying 😂 like they show the show for 5 minutes and then it’s like 7 minutes worth of commercials
  • Keeps spinning 1/5

    By azziijoon
    I’m trying to watch the new episode of Walker on my iPhon, but it won’t load, the screen keeps spinning. I deleted the app and download it again, but it’s still not working. I checked my interested connect, it up to speed. The app doesn’t work on my Apple TV either, it does the same thing. Please fix the issue.
  • Barely works, but at least it’s free 1/5

    By So done with facebook
    It’s wild that such a large wealthy company can have such a crappy app. The constant buffering brings me back to my 2002 dial up internet days. I guess I should be grateful the app doesn't include that screeching dial up noise. Oh, speaking of noise… the commercials are significantly louder than the show, so I have to mute them if I don’t want to play the up-down game every 5 minutes. If I try to leave the volume at a happy medium so the commercials are more bearable, I can barely hear the dialogue of the actual show. But wait, there’s more! The closed captioning is out of synch, sometimes by several minutes, so it’s no help at all in trying to catch what the characters are saying while keeping the volume low enough to avoid being startled by the extremely loud commercials or even the in-show music. Did I mention that the music in the actual show is also super loud? So I’ll have it turned up high so I can hear the dialog, then it cuts to a scene in a nightclub and I have to scramble to grab the remote to turn it back down to a reasonable level, but then the next scene is dialog so I have to turn it back up again. The whole point of watching tv shows is to relax and chill, but trying to watch anything on CW is just exhausting and frustrating. Sigh. At least it’s free.
  • Needs a reboot 1/5

    By 1xzsammy
    Honestly, with all the streaming apps having certain things like dual screen, you guys can do better.
  • Have you used your own app?. 1/5

    By SassyCyn
    This app is AWFUL!!! I’m not always able to watch new episodes when they air. So I try watching them on the app. I completely understand that there will be commercials, I am fine with that. I am not fine with the same commercial playing 3 or 4 times in a row. I am not fine with 10 minutes or more of commercials. I am not fine with, after a different commercial plays, then we go back to the same commercial that played 3 or 4 times in a row to another 3 or 4 times in a row. They can do better than that!! FIX YOUR APP!!!
  • Your developer needs serious help! 3/5

    By MyTallestZIM
    I’m a developer and this app has some fundamental problems. 1. Done button in settings doesn’t work. 2. How do you turn off captions? 3. The navigation buttons in settings don’t highlight properly. You also advertise/highlight shows you want people to watch but don’t provide episodes starting at #1 or even the beginning of the current season. You don’t really expect me to start a show at episode 5 do you?
  • This app stinks 2/5

    By Music Lover MKM
    I kept thinking it was my phone but Netflix and Amazon work great.. this app not so much. It freezes all the time and restarts when I come back to continue, it’s annoying.
  • App is disabled. 1/5

    By sweetheartClare
    Today is January 15 2022 and I can’t play any episodes on the app because just freezes and doesn’t play anything. I tired deleting the app and reinstalling it but I will just delete it forever. Fk this sht because there’s no way I shouldn’t be able to play anything. I am so tight !!!!
  • Won’t work 1/5

    By Mommy1128
    I have had problems with this app giving me error messages before or just staying on the loading screen, but normally, it fixes itself quickly. Now, it’s been giving me error messages and blank loading screens for 5 days. This is very frustrating when I have shows I really want to watch. I have done all the troubleshooting suggestions. Is anyone else experiencing this.
  • Terrible app 1/5

    By dt704
    Glitchy, slow and frustrating. Watching a series make no sense to skip episodes. We were catching up on superman and lois only to find it randomly skips episodes. Tonight S1 ep 11, only to 12 and 13 not available; but 14,15 are. Ridiculous, frustrating! And not worth using.
  • Something is wrong with this app 1/5

    By Stay is Here
    I’ve had this app since Superman & Lois came out and it worked fine but for the last two months the app hasn’t been working at all. I can’t watch anything on my phone or on the Roku app on my tv. It just shows an error message saying that it can’t play any titles and it’s been this way for a while.
  • AirPlay Drop 1/5

    By Andres1011
    Want to enjoy it but cannot because once iPhone locks it drop off my TV. Fix it so I can watch.
  • No! Just no! 1/5

    By gypsymama4
    This app is horrible! It NEVER works! I honestly just ended up deleting it because I was over trying. It’s a waste of time, which is really unfortunate because I like a lot of shows on the cw.
  • The CW 1/5

    By very bad choice
    The only thing I hate about the about is the ads they are to long!!
  • 7 ads 1/5

    By benji11344567890
    7 ads in a row while watching Swamp Thing. Simply stopped caring.
  • Top Negtive 1/5

    By Irritated933
    This app is nonstop commercials…..way too many!!
  • portrait mode 2/5

    By eric n smith
    I like what this app has to offer, but you can only view things in portrait mode, making the video itself small and hard to see even, and without paying, there are about 30 ads per episode for the show I'm watching.
  • Couldn’t watch anything 1/5

    By Triedtouse
    Does this app even function? I tried over and over to watch a show, but finally just deleted the app.
  • My experience 3/5

    By itsswavy_kimk
    The app is perfect and it is free I just don’t like how there is a add every 5 seconds I wish they took the adds away
  • Pixelated Bad Picture 3/5

    By andymc1
    The picture resolution on this app has just gotten worse. I even upgraded my Internet speed to see if it would help with the pixelation, however it did not. Shows continue to buffer and are not in HD quality. This app is buggy and lots of commercials.
  • Okay 3/5

    By Asfftrsxfr
    It’s okay but it has a little to many adds and when I first started the episodes were a little messed up l
  • South Park 1/5

    By life gacha 2
  • I love it! 5/5

    By Anna Willett - 10 years old
    I was craving season six of riverdale since Netflix doesn't have it, but i stumbled here and when i downloaded the app it was straight on the homepage! No accounts, nothing! So they had season six of riverdale and now the Cw is my best friend since the only subscription my parents have is Netflix. It is free and simple, with adds of course but the app is amazing! CW, thank you!
  • Needs Supernatural 1/5

    By becca5777
    Why isn’t supernatural on it?? Also way to many ads
  • Cannot enjoy the app 2/5

    By Mr.MustangGT
    You cannot enjoy watching a show because of all the Dang commercials. They are quite often and numerous at each break. Forget this app and look elsewhere
  • Ads & commercials 2/5

    By ChewyChickenFat
    App is good but it’s “ 2 MANY!!!! “ commercial’s…program plays for less than 4 minutes and then it’s back to 5-6 commercial’s…WHY!!!! Regular TV don’t have commercials like that SMMFDH😡😡😡!!! Welp, back to regular programming I go…The CW✌🏽deuces!!!
  • Cw 3/5

    By Tristantiktok13
    I love this app and how I can watch my favorite show early but there’s just one problem and that’s the ads it’s like every 8-12 minutes there’s like 5 ads and they are all like 5 minutes long
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By Laci Montgomery
    This app has only worked for me once. Every other time I try to watch something it loads for a little then says “error:playback has failed” it doesn’t work.
  • The cell 1/5

    By Denisha123
    I love the app but there’s too many ads
  • Stream 1/5

    By Juliaheartpitbulls
    Supposedly the show that I wanted to watch started at 8pm today. I was ready to watch it and was so excited about it. It ended up not showing and just became a white screen. I kept trying different ways to get to my show but nothing worked. Worst app ever!
  • Too many ads 2/5

    By #Crazy8Toney Kyra
    All I have to say is there is to many ads I go through at least 10 in 11 minutes everything else is pretty good I give it a two because everything is good about it it just shows way to many ads 1 or 2 every 30 minutes isgood
  • Paid Version/Pay(or membership)to remove ads 5/5

    By GoldenX_XThumb
    I would really like it if there was a version of this app where I can pay to remove ads or have like a membership that I can subscribe to, to remove the ads! Please really consider adding such features!!!!
  • My rate 2/5

    By Ke'Lea
    I like this app I do but it’s too much adds and everyone of them it stops to load so please fix that
  • Why are the first 4 episodes of Legacies season 4 missing? 3/5

    By rburdiez
    A little surprised with the inability to see these episodes. At least state how long they’ll show for.
  • No stars 1/5

    By bonazia
    The app is worst than the channel I’ve been watching rerun commercials for about 18 minutes at this point how do I delete my account and this crap is in my smart tv as well which means another ten minutes of commercials we are literally watching episodes as if they were a trailer
  • Quality 3/5

    By htsteuyeuetjtsn
    I try to watch something and the quality goes way down and idk how to fix and I’ve had this problem for a while now
  • Not for the multitasker 3/5

    By i just want to get stuff done
    You’d think by now there would be an option to do the Picture in Picture thing other streaming apps have. Like, I enjoy mostly listening to shows while working, taking notes, writing emails, social media-ing…but I can’t do that while using this app as it forces you to stay on the screen only to use it.
  • TOO MANY ADS 2/5

    By bob/bob the bobby
    First off every maybe 5 minutes there’s an ad. There’s no point of watching if it keeps putting minute longs videos
  • Overall 3/5

    By _.yooitsme._
    Overall I like the app but I think that your platform should have all of the following seasons for the show because you all have a contract with Netflix but when that expires we can not get to the season we where on prior to what was on Netflix. Also what I’m saying is y’all shouldn’t delete seasons or episodes off of your app. I don’t like that I have to go to a website to find the previous episode of the show I want to watch. Basically, Netflix doesn’t have supergirl anymore and I went to the cw but they don’t have the episode I’m on on there so yea I’m a little upset about that but I will find a website to watch it on.
  • I am very sad 5/5

    By destany077744444
    Okay I don’t know how to get in touch with the actual people so i am writing this here. I am very upset that the best show on the whole cw app is being discontinued. Containment was such a great show for the few episodes it had out and I am highly upset that they will not be continuing it:( I really wish they would!!!
  • Ads 3/5

    By courtney A. Allen
    I’m trying to watch legacies and ads have been playing for 10-15 minutes none stop
  • This app is a disaster 1/5

    By MKinFL
    The same goes for their app on Roku. Trying to use the phone app because CW seed content isn’t fully working on Roku app even though they merged the apps. Airplay keeps freezing at a certain point with commercials. A waste of time.
  • Ads 1/5

    By vg31221335
    Way too many ads!! I’m fine with some ads. I understand they are necessary but this is just plain greed. Good shows but not worth it. Worse than watching the tv channel!
  • Apple AirPlay Doesn’t work 2/5

    By ZRanch
    This app says it is AirPlay compatible yet I have a brand new Samsung TV that the CW app refuses to connect to via AirPlay or Screen Sharing. I tried an iPad and had a friend try their iPhone and none of them would connect, yet all the other apps I tried had no issues connecting to AirPlay. This validates it is an app issue and is now forcing me to buy a Chromecast to put on my $1500 TV just to watch the CW. Hopefully Chromecast works…
  • One show 5/5

    By Jskamakanaka
    Never thought my legends of tomorrow stream would be so good, until I downloaded this app. Thanks cw app developers
