    I do like the app very simple and easy to use! I personally like to watch Riverdale on the CW App! Although you can't watch the episodes when they first come out they let you watch it the next day for free! I would recommend it to my friends and family if they ever needed an app like this. One think they could maybe change is using it without WiFi that would be great!.. Full Review

    I think you need a upgrade the app a little bit more some times it won't let me pause or go back , less Commercials. Other then that this is a great up to catch up on shows you might have to miss cause of life. Something always comes up. Thanks again for the app Full Review

    This app is great, it's amazing, I can watch all my favorite shows on it. But.... BUT it sucks right now, it keeps skipping things, the rewind button & pause button keeps disappearing every time I start watching a show & get a minute or 2 into it. I have to close it out & open it back up if I want to "pause" it. Please, fix the app, please. Thank you Full Review

    I agree with the other reviews, "it was" a great app. But since the update, I get nothing! Shows will not play, doesn't matter which show I try to watch, it takes forever (going on almost 3 hours) just to get the ad up and then that quits half way through! I've uninstalled , reinstalled and still nothing! Now all I get is a black screen!! Thanks for the update, but no thanks, I'd like the old one back please! Until then you only get 1 star, which I didn't want to give you that but I had to! Fix this p,ease or I'll find another way to watch my shows! I'm going to HBO and watching Game of Thrones!

    I don't like leaving negative reviews. You guys worked really hard to make this terrible! Shows play less than 20 percent of the time and yes, that being said the amount of ads is inexcusable (as a point of reference im ok with the NBC app) Thanks for giving me more temptation to pirate your shows.

    I don't like it for the simple fact that everyone of my other apps is able to work using my data. This app however says that have no internet connection and can't use it. I've closed and reopened it numerous times and I even undownloaded and redownloaded it. If anyone has any tips on how I can make this work that would be nice. Full Review

    Worst steaming app ever. Can't get thru a single show without it crashing, killing the show or changing episodes. Seems to be designed for you to have to watch the commercials dozens of times just to complete an episode. I like the cw shows and I loved watching them on hulu. Now that they have pulled the shows from hulu I am forced to use this awful app. I'm just going to stop watching the cw altogether until they put it back on hulu. Full Review

    ,alotUpdate, this station has a list of current shows. What ever your taste,it might be here. Currently I have had trouble with guality on video a lot of distortion, pixelating. One good thing over some is no constant breaks in watching . (Pause here or there every 30-45 seconds,) so an annoying. Full Review

    Great app. could do with out ads, but they got to make money some how. Wish I could watch live streaming in my area so I could watch shows the night of premier, but I'm ok waiting till the next day. Better than a week like other networks. Only has last 5 eps of shows, so if you fall too far behind you'll have to wait till it hopefully gets to Netflix. Full Review

    I love the app it have to many ads, but I enjoy watching The Flash , Arrow , SuperGirl and DCs Legends of tomorrow its the boom but i wish the ads can stop thats all i wish for! I think you should get this app because The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl,DCs Legends of tomorrow and Riverdale will blow your MIND!!! From: Sanii Smith Full Review

    I only have streaming television, so normally I would have to wait a year to watch my DC on CW shows. With this app, I get to watch my shows within a day and keep up and I love it. Only gripe is I have to exit out of the show after a commercial and reenter for the picture quality to be acceptable, otherwise I'm very happy. Full Review

    Lg tribute hd here. Videos are choppy when trying to watch. The ads and commercials play just fine. I downloaded the update and it was still choppy plus it would have difficulty playing. I have to stop and restart every time. This is a new phone for me so not sure if app is compatible. Full Review

    I have been using this app for over a year now to watch my favorite CW shows. It had great visual and audio quality last year. But now that I've come back to the app because the new seasons of the DC shows are out (Arrow, Flash, etc) the audio quality is really bad. It sounds like the audio is coming through a cotton ball. I've tested with separate headphones and different CW shows and they all do the same thing. If this were fixed, I would greatly appreciate it, but otherwise very useful and amazing app. Full Review

    They advertise that you can watch your favorite shows on the app. Yet when I tried to watch Riverdale, I could only watch the first 3 episodes. I wanted to watch the full season! I jumped on the bandwagon late and have no way of watching the show. Really wish you'd add all the episodes😬 Full Review

    I can't give an accurate description of the app because I can't get it to work! I have unlimited data on my phone and all of my other TV apps work except for this one, unless I'm hooked to WiFi, and then it only works half of the time. This used to not be the case until to updates ago. Fix the issue or I'm going to delete it and tell people not to download it Full Review

    I really like it, but doesn't update sometimes. It's thursday and no arrow yet. Happened with the glad and legends last season too. I know you're getting it for free and that's hard to argue with, but if you are gonna advertise shows next day they should be available next day Full Review

    Published date: October 11, 2017

    Absolutely horrendous picture quality. You can barely tell what's happening onscreen. Watched the entire premiere of flash s4 without being able to properly see anything. It did not improve at all and pausing it to give it time to load did not help. The commercials were also very inconvenient. I'm fine if the app needs to include breaks but the fact that each break had 6+ ads was excessive and really ruined the experience. Full Review

    I really do love the app, but it used to work for me when I didn't have my wifi on. Now it requires Wi-Fi and mine is pretty bad. Is the app wireless at all? My Wi-Fi can't be fixed and id really like to watch my shows. Full Review

    Gave this app 4 stars last season. Now it's almost completely unwatchable. There is so much pixelation you can barely see what is happening. The commercials come through just fine, which makes little sense. Full Review

    I had this app when it was in its first stages and honestly it worked better then. Now there are 3 times as many ads, the video quality dropped, and it has the worst video streaming of any app I have ever downloaded. Will rate higher when the problems are fixed. Full Review

    Very buggy and doesn't sync up to where you left off if you shut it down and resume. Says it's HD but very hard to believe especially since we were sitting next to our router and the show was streaming very pixelated. Full Review

    Makayla Harrington Published date: October 11, 2017

    The app is only good for when you miss an episode after a day or so. I stayed up all night to watch the season premiere of Riverdale because I thought the app would have a live stream but it doesn't. Full Review

    I give it 4 ☆'s outta 5, too many commercials with too much black screen lag time between shows & comercials, and what's with the pixeling? The short freezing up? Fix that & I'll give it 5 ☆'s!!! Love the shows tho... Full Review

    It's a good app, but lately, maybe this version, it hasn't been able to play a whole video. The video and audio starts getting jumpy and I can't make the play button controls appear. Also, please optimize with screen mirroring (miracast). Full Review

    This app used to work just fine. Now, it says I need to check my mobile or wifi connection. I'm missing out on the fall premieres. I shouldn't need wifi when my mobile data works just as well. Please, fix this. Full Review

    Jeannette D Published date: October 12, 2017

    It almost works but with the latest version it stretches the image vertically to fill the screen and just ends up distorting it. Also did a weird thing where it tried to go to an ad then went back several minutes in the show so I then had to skip forward to get to where I was. But at least it didn't crash multiple times during an episode like it used to. Full Review

    I like being able to catch up on my shows but even after updating it still freezes over and over. And still after having this app for well over a year it still crashes over and over. I have the CVS app too and it works fine. The CW app is still terrible. Please fix. Full Review

    Good so far. Seems to be an issues with the commercial breaks though. Sometimes freezes up at start of commercial break and when it does play the ads, audio is fine, but picture flickers in and out. The actual shows look and sound fine, so that's all I care about anyway. Full Review

    Just when I think this app couldn't get any worse you guys surprise me. How is it possible that you release an app that works perfectly with the first release and then gradually make it worse and worse with each update? This app has been rendered useless on my Android tablet. Just do is all a favor and put these shows back on Hulu. Full Review

    It use to be great, but now when I open the app it tells me to check my data connection or Wi-Fi connection. I have unlimited data and that was never a problem before. I tried uninstalling and installing and it didn't work. Wish you would fix this problem. Then I could change my review. Full Review
