The CW Reviews


Way to many ads  Annblythe1  1 star

The app is great except for all the ads. If they would at least cut them down.


Great  DooneyDaDon  4 star

Great app just wish you’ll had full season of the shows and not the last couple episode !!


Would be five stars but...  lpsfrostlight  4 star

I would give this app 5 stars but it only has the most recent episodes and I didn’t get a chance to watch chapters 36,37,38, and 39 so I was kinda confused on 40

I love the CW😭

Disappointed  I love the CW😭  1 star

App won’t work!!!!

Valerie Amaro

I only have 1 problem  Valerie Amaro  3 star

I am trying to watch the 1st episode of Riverdale from season 3 and I can’t because it says I am on the 9th episode and I am not. That’s the only problem everything else is wonderful.


Would give it a 5 star but...  FUNMATE FAN  3 star

So I wanted to watch Riverdale season 3 but it was only like chapter 45 and up like you can’t watch the first chapter.... TO MANY ADS TOO


Ad breaks too frequent and long  teenyseas  3 star

Would be 5 stars if I didn’t constantly have episodes interrupted by long ad breaks. Ruins the flow of the show and gets extremely irritating, especially when it’s the same ads repeating themselves.


Not enough episodes to watch  iyaiscoooool😎  3 star

I only give it 3 stars because it only gave me a limited amount of episodes to watch. If you could make more episodes I would rate this 5 starts because the app is great otherwise


Ok but not every episode?  akidtryingtowatchriverdale  3 star

It’s good but for riverdale season three it doesn’t start with the first episode and so when I watch it I don’t understand because it starts with episode4 please fix this


Series  Youkowhoitis  4 star

How can I find episode 1 in a season 14 in supernatural or the whole series to it???


Great app but slow to update  28gs  4 star

This app is seriously awesome!! You can watch some of your fav shows before they hit streaming services & it’s completely free you just have to deal with the ads. It would be perfect if it just actually updated. I’ve currently been waiting over a month for my shows to update with the new episodes and still nothing :(

About the App  Chock'Lit Shoppe  4 star

This App is really great I would want people to by this app to watch more shows like Riverdale , The Flash and the Arrow and more ,but my one dislike is that. The Schedule only shows the week and not the month in a way it’s hard because right now the Cw for shows like Riverdale , Flash and the Arrow they have there mid season finale and so they stop the shows from showing new episodes on the CW channel and it’s hard to know how long they were going to stop the shows. So please show the month or at least show the two weeks. But over its USA great app and that’s it gets for stars and also not a fan of the ads.


Oof  Sloth_Lydia  1 star

I don’t understand why this app has to only have the latest episodes available. When I want to watch a show, that had already gone through a couple seasons, I can’t watch it. It’s really annoying.


Needs improvement  Superville46  2 star

When I watch on my Apple TV, it frequently stops and says “Playback has stalled.” This alway happens before or after a commercial. Also, when I’m done with an episode, the Play Next sections has the episode that is one week older. It should be the newer episode. Also, CW, you need an easier way for people to give you feedback so your stuff can actually get fixed and improved since you don’t want to use Hulu.


Warning - New version does not work on iPad 3  Clairebear1269  1 star

This version is not compatible with older iPads (iPad 3 and earlier)! Do not download! Does anyone know a workaround?

NYC Cre8ive

App doesn’t work on Apple TV  NYC Cre8ive  1 star

Been trying to get the app to work on my new Apple TV 4K but it only says “Error Launching Application - The operation couldn’t be completed”. So annoying

Cori Nalley

Horrible  Cori Nalley  1 star

I’m so angry at this why the expiration dates?!?! This is the only free network to watch Riverdale on, I was very exited to start watching season 3...but they only have S3 Episodes I need 1,2&3... I’m very disappointed...plz fix


Worst app I’ve downloaded  Siennav12  1 star

I download it and all I see is a buffering sign - it doesn’t stop. I have great WiFi and connection it just doesn’t work


So good  3jaw3  5 star

This app is so good and I love to watch my shows on it so I don’t have to wait 3 months or more for it to be on Netflix.


Needs more episodes  Jaccer  3 star

Kind of disappointing when you can’t catch up on the current season of a show because they don’t have l the episodes on the app. We recorded all episodes of The Flash from Season 5 episode 4 and on... But! Can’t catch up! so we won’t be watching any of the episodes now! Such a dumb move CW!
