I just go this app now, and it has so many shows i like to watch such as riverdale, supergirl, and many more. Also its free! But it does contain 4 or 5 ads every 15 minutes or so. You dont need to make an account, or put in any information at all! Otherwise, i love the app and the shows are high auality! It also is nice you can take screenshots of your show! 5 star rating☺
All it says is "Please check your mobile or wifi network and try again". That's on wifi and 4G. No problems with any other apps. Same message on iPad, and the Xbox app says it's unavailable on my region because I'm not in the United States (even though I am). Guess I'm not watching any of their shows this year...
So I started watching Riverdale season one on Netflix and I became obsessed. I heard season two was coming out and would be available on Netflix and/or the actual television channel for the CW. To my surprise, it wasn't released on Netflix and I don't have TV or cable (dinosaur, I know) so I downloaded the CW app on my phone and I was able to watch my show for free the day after it became available on television, small but worthy price! This app is no bs, just the episodes you want to watch, free of charge.
Honestly, I was hoping for more from this app. The app team should honestly try to mirror other network apps like Fox Now, cause your failing at trying to be different. This app DOESN'T stream in HD. Has very pixelated video and terribly distorted audio. Plus the app black screens/crashes after ads play. Ads are way too long and it takes longer to watch an episode on the app than it would live on TV. I wish I could give you zero stars.
This app is almost broke. After ads you never know if the show will restart where the break was. Picture is awful. Why no option for widescreen? Sometimes app stops allowing you to pause and if you close out and try to reopen it will start earlier in the episode and won't give you the option to fast forward. Love CW shows and really wish they would fix the app.
Firstly, people need to quit complaining about commercials on a FREE app, especially when you get less commercials than the cable OR dish you pay for. It's a great app in the sense that you can watch the episodes starting at midnight. My cable provider is supposed to provide next day episodes but takes a few days. I love how attentive the developers are in maintaining the app. Many paid apps aren't that attentive. I know Hulu isn't, which is probably why your channel disappeared from it. If this app wasn't free, I'd pay for it. Why? Because you guys take the time to make sure we are getting quality out of our streaming. Thank you. EDIT: Issues with pause coming up on screen causes me to have to restart the app too often. Lowered to 3* bcuz of it.
The CW is constantly striving to refine the app and make the experience better for you, so we update often. Get the latest version for optimal performance and the most recent improvements. Thank you for streaming with The CW app!
