App Reviews

  • Great app but doesn’t remember where you left off anymore

    By Russkafin
    First off I want to say I love the CW shows, especially Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl. And I like that there’s an app where I can watch the latest episodes, for free, and even cast them to my TV. However, as the parent of two young kids I rarely have time to watch a whole episode in one sitting. The app USED TO be really good about remembering my spot if I have to leave off and come back. Now, when I return to the app and choose an episode I already started, I still get the option to either start over or pick up where I left off, but it doesn’t actually pick up where I left off. It will return me to a spot way earlier in the episode, every time. And, of course when I try to skip ahead to the right spot I have to sit through ads I already sat through earlier. Today I resumed an episode of Arrow that I was 22 minutes into. It returned me to about a minute and a half in. I scrubbed back to 22 min, waited through ads. Then when it stated playing I casted to my TV, and it jumped back to a minute and a half in again!! I had to scrub again and sit through ads again. If you guys could fix this bug and get the app back to resuming episodes correctly again, it would be 5 stars from me.
  • Freezes way too much !

    By KittyKatRuesga
    I love CW shows but this app is constantly just loading the video I’m watching like literally every five seconds. I’ve tried letting the video load but didn’t help the app also freezes a lot even trying to play a show is a hassle it will stop working out of no where and will just kick you off constantly!
  • Very Cool App

    By Jhit16
    I’ve been streaming arrow, supergirl, and flash (for free). You don’t need to give an email or no info. I like this app a lot. No problems or issues. There are cool shows to stream and very good quality. To sum it all up it’s a very cool app, it’s free, and awesome shows. 👍🏼
  • Dumb design

    By Jdhauser
    Who’s idea was it to design this app in portrait format? It’s the worst and i don’t understand how anyone thought that would be a good move. Like, why?
  • Only for Supernatural

    By use code james
    The app will randomly start and stop. It kinda annoying, but it only happens every once in a while.
  • Good for watching on your phone

    By Red Karl
    However, it doesn’t always saves the correct time that I left off on. Then I have to watch multiple ads without a timer just to guess where I previously was. Also, is it possible to make the app more compatible with chromecast? Two things I noticed. One is that when I chromecast it sometimes choices a different time stamp which. Second, from time to time it pauses for a couple seconds and muted. It happens a few times during the show then the quality gets lower for a couple seconds as well.
  • CW can’t get it right

    They forced us to use their own app and they can’t even make it functional. CW shows used to be available to stream on Hulu after they aired. That was great because the Hulu app works well- both on devices and when used to stream. This app struggles with both functions and always has since it was created. Trying to stream last night was frustrating due to it stopping, trying to buffer, looping back 5-20 seconds, stopping in the same spot, over and over. It wouldn’t stop casting even when I clicked “stop casting”, so it started playing on my phone (from a random, much earlier spot in the episode which made me have to deal with rewatching all of the commercials I’d already seen) and then about 6 minutes later the cast picked back up while my phone was still playing (of course at a different part). I may just wait until this season is on Netflix.
  • Can't mirror this to my big screen

    By QuantumSam
    I used this app for the first time to catch up on the latest season of the Flash. I pushed it to my SmartTV. However it took me 90 minutes to watch a 45 minute episode. Not because of the commercials but because whenever my phone screen would go to sleep, the app would shut down. I would have to reopen it and the app would reset back to the beginning of the episode. I wouldn't be able to advance to where I left off until after I watched several minutes of commercials. Sometimes (rare occasions) instead of resetting, the show would stop and we could start it back up with the TV app - then we could watch for 10 minutes without the app stopping, but eventually it would.time out and the app would reset again.
  • worst streaming service ever.

    By Anabanana_22
    so first off, i would like to say that i love the cw. when i heard they were releasing an app i downloaded to stay caught up with my favorite shows. i started watching season 3 of Riverdale and literally every 5 minutes they have an ad. And it’s so repetitive! The same ad has literally played five times. Maybe I wouldn’t mind as much of the ads weren’t repetitive but they show you the same “Wendy’s Fried Fish Patty” ad like 173919 times. Also, if you exit out of the app midway through and episode and then come back a couple of hours later, the show doesn’t stay where you left off, but starts over. this would not be a big deal if it weren’t for the fact that before you play an episode you have to watch 162919 ads and then when you can finally watch and go to the place where you left off, the ads start playing again. i think they should have a set number of ads per episode. I am ok with 2-3. I get that you need ads to get money but NO ONE NEEDS THAT MUCH MONEY JEEZ. just please, cut down the ads. it makes it annoying to watch.
  • The worst streaming app

    By JDSquared
    This app is outclassed by Hulu, Netflix, Prime, FX, FOx Sports, and numerous others. The videos drop in and out, but the commercials play smooth as silk. I’ll just wait until these shows are on Netflix next year.
