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
It's great being able to keep up with shows on the app. I just wish they would keep all the episodes instead of just the last 5. I watched the first season of a CW show on Netflix but to watch the second season i had to buy the first 2 episodes on amazon video before i could watch the rest on the CW app. I almost gave up on the second season. If they want to keep ratings up then CW needs to allow people to catch up that start watching late.
Love that I can watch new episodes of Supergirl (my favorite show) on this app the very next day after it airs. Great way for me to catch up on shows and rewatch my favorite episodes. I also love the extra clips, cast interviews and behind the scenes looks. Occasionally, there aren't even any adds and I get to watch an entire episode without any interruption.
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.
