The app does what it's supposed to do. However I'm not a fan of the fast forward feature. If you start a show and have to stop halfway through on the next startup you have to watch the ads(which is fine) but then 9/10 you end up watching the exact same ads again in 20 seconds. But the app is free so can't complain to much about the ads. Just wish they were implemented better on the seeking feature of the app
Been a user for years (atleast 2014) love the app love most the shows. There are a few times when it glitches and i have to exit the app and restart it but thats alot of apps. It says about the CW is targeted for mainly women 18-34 i am 17 and a woman and have been watching the CW shows for years. I Love the app but there are too many commercials. The subtitles are on point for most the time also. 5 stars! Great app. Great shows.
I think this app is so cool! I love my superheroes and watch them all the time but I also love to watch things like Jane the Virgin and Riverdale. I've never read the comics but I think I like the show better. It's cool to see all types of shows on one app/channel. I also think it's cool that if you don't have DirecTV, like nyself, you can still find your favorite shows only one day later.
Too many ads and the shows don't stream at the time it's scheduled but overall it's really nice to have a place to watch Jane the virgin and other shows but I'd prefer cutting back on the ads and do it on schedule and not freezing until you have to click the pause and then start again. Also the subtitles don't match up with the speech it goes to fast but I like how you can watch full episodes despite the fact there are too many ads.
One of the better TV network apps. Let's me cast t my TV, while Comedy Central and vaicom continue to pander to the cable companies and lock down their features for non cable subscribers. The only critique I have is that if you want to jump back in the episode or you accidentally hit the progress bar and go back you can't just tap back to where you were, you have to rewatch the commercials as well.
Casting is a nightmare. App always crashes first time trying to cast it. The second time it goes through to my Chromecast but it stays on the loading screen, even though I have great Internet connection. It does the same thing when using a Google home (and it doesn't let you change episodes through the Google home).
