I want to love this app 1/5
I want to love this app. I respect what the CW is doing, but it doesn’t work. I’ve removed it, re downloaded it, tried on a fire stick, an iPhone, an iPad, and an android and cannot get even one show to play. If the app cannot be supported, at least let us have access on another platform.
A lot of problems 2/5
There are way too many ads and a lot of bugs and glitches in this app like after an ad it will skip 5-10 min further into the episode for no reason and sometimes the screen will freeze and the audio will keep going and the only way to fix it is to restart the app and then the pause button will be stuck in the middle of the screen while you are watching and you also have to restart the app to fix that
Thank You CW 5/5
I love this. I’m a kid and my mom won’t let me stay up to watch the flash and now I won’t miss any episodes
Best app ever 5/5
By bob ross paints trees
I just got this app about a month ago it is great! I don’t have a problem with the adds, and when I first got it I could just watch them i didn’t have to login or any thing.best app ever
Ads skip over scenes 3/5
Does anyone else have this problem? After an ad ends and when the show comes back on, I’ve lost like 20 seconds. Then I have to rewind and sometimes that triggers the ads again. It’s really frustrating. But the rest of the app seems to work fine.
Gets worse every update... 1/5
-Doesn’t support screen rotating in 2019...
-Closed captions still glitch to be on at all times...
-If you happen to touch the screen during video, the pause/play button (which covers the entire screen) does not go away until app is restarted, oh and enjoy the ads when restarting...
-Opening a show to pick an episode you missed? No worries, the app will automatically play whatever episode is displayed without you touching the play button.
-No way to delete your log of “continue watching” episodes... so those shows that started without you hitting play have now been added to your log...
-No ad diversity, you will legit get the same ad multiple times in a row...
-Doesn’t display new episodes correctly, sometimes it says new episode and there is none, or a new episode will not be advertised.
-App provider suggests reinstalling the app and restarting your phone to fix these bugs, don’t bother it does not work.
I farded 1/5
By Murican reviews
This app made me farded
App is f*ucking stupid 1/5
This app is stupid asf always gliitches out
Orientation lock or?? 1/5
You can only watch the show one way? You can’t flip it?? It’s 2019 and I can only watch a show one way not a good update
Skipping scenes 1/5
Update the app!! Its got bugs in it or something. Skipping thru scenes after breaks for commercials. I have to rewind many times to get it right.
Playback issues 1/5
By Rl chick
App used to run fine but lately all I getting is playback stalled out message every couple minutes.
I don’t mind all the ads as long as I was able to watch an episode without stalling out.
Horrible app 1/5
By this app is the worstt
Few things about this app that I really dislike. First of all there’s too many ads!! You’ll watch like 5 min of the show and then have another ad, like I get they have to make their money, but I’ve never seen an app have that many. 2nd of all, this app is just horrible, it always freezes, especially during the ads. It takes me twice as long to watch a show bc of how it much it freezes. And it’s every single time I’m a watching a show too, not every so often. It’s great this app is free, but it needs SO many fixes.
Pain in the butt 3/5
It has issues if you press play and it doesn’t remember where you left off. Which is 90% of the time. And every time you drag the dot through to try and find where you left off you have to watch 2 minutes of ads first before it plays where you dragged the dot to. God forbid you drag it around 5 times to get it exactly where you left off at. You will end up watching 10 minutes of ads. It’s a pain.
App on Alexa TV 2/5
By Alderik Wu
Needs to be updated, the commercials never play and always stop buffering. So I can never watch the show on my tv
By cw SUCKSS
i only use this to finish the all american season. i can’t even do that because it always gets stuck and “can’t playback” which is very annoying , and in total ads are 20 min so it takes an hour to watch my show , you guys need to do better . disappointed
EXTREMELY GLITCHY !! I’m getting sooo tired of trying to watch a show, and then having the episode freeze while the sound is still playing. It results in me having to exit out the app, re open it, and then rewatch all the commercials I JUST watched. It’s super annoying. About to do away with the app and the shows completely. FIX THIS
By unkown missing
Lack content bad
Endless playback errors 1/5
This app used to be good. Rarely had problems. Now I can’t watch anything because of the playback errors. If it does happen to start working once it comes back from a commercial I get a playback error. I’ve tried on my iPad, phone and Apple TV. It’s hard to keep up on the shows that you like when you can watch them.
My review 5/5
I think it’s a great app I’ve been using it for almost a year now I’ve never had a problem so I don’t know why some people don’t like it
Every minute it stops to buffer during the shows. Runs fine during the plethora of commercials. It’s painful to try and watch.
The time on ads 4/5
The ads are long and you might forget the show that you are watching you should get some sort of way to not have ads. The ads are not necessarily
Glitches galore and a ton of ads 2/5
There are a ridiculous amount of commercials and every time you get back to the show the app glitches and freezes then you have to fast forward to get past it, the it freezes again, then I have to close out and pray that it picks up where it left off instead of putting my placing right back to the beginning of the commercial, thereby starting this entire infuriating process again. And this happens like 7 times per episode because there are that many commercial breaks. Worst streaming app I’ve ever used. I wish I didn’t love some of these shows.
Why can’t your app work? 1/5
Seriously, there’s hundreds of streaming apps that work just fine. The CW though seems to have the hardest time working properly. I’ll watch half a show and it will just quit. Then giving me a playback error. Come on CW, it doesn’t take a genius. If all these other apps can work smoothly, there’s NO REASON The CW can’t work just as smoothly.
I appreciate the free app. But when you come off of the add it starts the episode like 5 minutes ahead of where you left off. It’s impossible to follow the story without spending 3 minutes after every add break back tracking
There is no area to search anything and if there is I not easy to find.
Just what I wanted, with one missing feature 4/5
As a Supernatural fan, I was pleasantly surprised to find the new season streaming directly from the CW app so that I can catch up on it. My only problem is that when there isn’t a new episode, you can’t find Supernatural on the app anywhere. The only time I’m ever able to find it, is if it’s on the main page under new episodes. Why one of your biggest shows is nowhere in the list of shows you offer is beyond me, but a simple way to resolve this would be to add a search feature.
Other than that, it’s good.
Y’all are late with the episodes
I get the app is free. But ads are to close not even a second apart.
it’s alright 2/5
the quality wasent the best but for a free app it was good. the only thing is the adds got really annoying really fast you couldn’t enjoy the show because it was all just adds there was more add time than actual show time wich i really didn’t like and i didn’t have a few other difficulties but the adds was the worst.
Please fix your janky app! 1/5
It doesn’t work on any device. If you’re going to have too many ads at least make the videos work. The worst.
Doesn’t work 2/5
Will not work on my iPad why? Or any other platform I have. You Guys really don’t seem to care after I’ve sent emails about your app not working.
The amount of ads on this app is unreal. Definitely doesn’t need that many or at least make them shorter or something. It absolutely ridiculous.
Would be GREAT if wouldn’t stall... 3/5
Why does it constantly stall when there’s a new episode? Does any one read reviews to make sure it works correctly?
New shows don’t come up 1/5
I’ve bin waiting for new shows to come up for two weeks
Don’t Recommend 1/5
This is really bad please don’t install it
The app is always closing! 2/5
I completely understand that it is a free app. I am grateful for that but dang, I can’t watch One single episode without it exiting out. It also has way to many ads. In order for people to have a decent time watching a show you need to improve your app. Please and thank you!
Offer a ad free version for a cost! 3/5
As with many of the other reviews, too many ads and they repeat. I’ve literally seen the same subway commercial 5 times for one show. I’ll pay a few not to have to watch commercials. First world problems right?!
The ads knock the show out of whack 2/5
By Nunyo bid. 99
Seriously. It plays an ad and then it won’t play the video for the show. You can hear the sound, but no video. Or it freezes. Regardless, it goes crazy after each ad. Please fix this.
way to many ads 1/5
there are so many ads. Almost every six minutes, there all the same ads so it’s super annoying.
Add App to other Devices 3/5
I love the app and love that I’m able to watch my favorite shows. I don’t enjoy that I can only stream on my phone or my laptop, I wish they would add it to other devices that have capabilities to stream videos. Example I have a PlayStation and it would be awesome if I could stream CW on my actual tv!
Garbage app 1/5
Horrible, probably 10 minutes of ads with a 40min episode. Money hungry pigs
Horrible App 1/5
The design and functionality are no where up to standards.
I can’t even watch my shows 2/5
I thought this new update would help my streaming watch my favorite shows but it’s not I can’t even see the shows and I tried deleting it and still didn’t work lol
Won’t open 1/5
App takes too long to open. Keeps freezing in the initial logo loading screen. Keep having to close and open app. Still haven’t been able to get to screen of shows yet.
Needs fixing 3/5
I started using the app last year so I can keep up with my favorite shows sense I work graves. It worked fine until few months ago. After every add for some reason the show doesn’t pick up where it should. The show would start few minutes as if the show continued while the ad was playing. I would have to rewind back and sometimes end up rewatching the ad just so I don’t miss anything. Other then this problem the app works fine.
Need to update 1/5
Have to uninstall app than install again to work. Been doing this for a while. I know it’s free but dang.
Now the new update doesn’t even open. I’m done with this app. I’m deleting it.
Cannot watch anything 1/5
I use to have the CW app on my phone and it was so amazing. It worked perfectly. I had to factory restart my phone and now the CW app doesn’t work for me. I deleted the app, reinstalled it. I did everything the cw help support part gave me and it still doesn’t work. It just shows me the loading screen then a message pops up that says ‘ERROR: playback has stalled out.’
Awesome app too many ads! 2/5
This app is great. Too many ads which are long and too frequent. I wouldn’t mind paying a fee for less/no ads. Can watch the flash so I’ll keep using!
I can’t watch the new ep of flash or arrow it does not let me
