Great  Gooskshevehjansbsvdg  5 star

This is a great app it lets you watch shows when you don’t have tv and you don’t have to pay for it or sine up for it I haven’t tried to connect it on a tv but it works great on mobile devises I would recommend getting it I would even pay for it


Disappointed  SexKitten305  1 star

Doesn’t work ! :(  hannah.prt  1 star

I’d don’t know why but If i open the app there’re just some lines and the rest is black


CC in Spanish  Colloted  3 star

when they will have the Spanish version or close captions in several languages ​​I remind you that in America we are millions of Hispanics who consume your service


Ugh, commercials  guedri  4 star

It’s 2017. Give me an in app option to pay and not see commercials. The same commercials cycle every commercial break. I’m a cord cutter with no cable or broadcast stations primarily because I like to stream with no commercials.

Best App Ever!!!!  Jacob Stull  5 star

Omg I had just benge watched the flash on Netflix ( one of the biggest movie/tv show softwares) when it came to my att nation that they didnt have all the new seasons . I came to this app and was able to run the app and watch more episodes 100% recommend this app


Garbage app. Usability=0  Vlad-Miami  1 star

Very crappy app, had to constantly scroll through literally everything. How hard is to do option to choose one show and then browse episodes? Obviously too hard to CW app developer. On top of that of course it crashes with apple TV constantly. Don’t even bother trying to watch anything. Garbage!


Awful  stangz18_8ball  1 star

Makes me keep watching adds and won't let me watch the show. Load of BS. Awful company.


Why can’t I cast it?! 😡  PollyRawwr  2 star

Loved this app until today when I discovered I could no longer chrome cast...deleted the app.


Too many ads  Gabbalabbadingdong  3 star

I feel as if the ads are longer than the actual show I’m trying to watch is sometimes😕


Hate it  punisher1980  1 star

Whenever I try to watch my episodes of Supergirl it says that the episode is unavailable and I’m connected to WiFi I have my software updates in I don’t get it don’t buy it it is a wast of time and you can’t even watch you tv shows

NEW UPDATE IS BAD  Big bear47/17834:)  3 star

I don’t know why but after I installed the newest update for the app there is always captions (that are unable to be turned off I tried many ways) and the white bar that tells you how far in the show you are will not go away......use to always watch shows on this but not I can’t cause it drives me insane


What App?!?  ScarletSpeedster01  1 star

Is it just me or is this app totally not working? I was so excited to download and use this app and to my dismay, it's freakin' not working. The home page displays nothing and it also says no videos available. I tried sending feedback by going to the info tab but it too reads 'page is unavailable'. Am I missing something here?!?


crashes!  ioreobot  1 star

it won’t even open on my phone smh i just wanted to watch jane the virgin 😞


Love this App!  Asksundbdhendjdnd  5 star

I love multiple shows on The CW and when I decided to quit cable I was sad that I would not be able to watch my shows until they came in Netflix. When I found out about this app I was soooooo excited. I absolutely love it! Yes there are commercials but not too many. I am so happy I found this app.


Love it  Truerthinu  5 star

I downloaded this app because I wanted to watch Riverdale and with this app and Netflix I’m ready to start using it to watch other shows.But I do wish you could download episodes so if I miss an episode I can download it and watch it on the bus.


App will not load with IOS 11  Superfit25  1 star

Since this IOS 11 update, there are many apps that haven’t updated along with it, and CW is one of those apps. Please fix it.

i love the app but..  Lexie Parks  3 star

i like be the app, most of my favorite shows are on cw, however sometimes i try to watch shows and it brings up “play back error” i’ve tried restarting the app and my phone, even re-downloading but nothing seems to work. i also noticed that when i pause the video and come back the play back bar doesn’t go away.


Love  Autumskyok  4 star

I'm going to give the app a 4 out of 5 stars. Only reason for not choosing 5 stars is because I absolutely hate the ridiculous amount of commercials when I'm trying to watch Riverdale lol but other than that it's a great app if you don't have the time to watch your shows during the week oh and it's free!


Good  Ememmeneennehdnddhjsskls  5 star

Glad I can watch the flash on this
