Not accessible  Becca992  1 star

More Show episodes  yfjfjdgi  5 star

I just wish you had put every episode in the show just so if I was away I could watch like episode 5 season 3

Hey Im Emily

NO ADS  Hey Im Emily  1 star

I First off dont enjoy how there are so many ads in the beginning middle and end of a show so your show is all the ads.The ads take over every show.Its pretty annoying.


to many ads  jahxara  2 star

They’re too many adds. By the time you’re done with all the ads it’s like you can’t remember what happened in what you were watching before. In one little show they give you like 1,000 ads


Aggravating  TrucktheUSA  1 star

I’m using the app on my iPhone 7 just to keep up with The 100. This app is very aggravating to use. Almost every transition between the flood of commercials and the show is bugged. The screen will either lock on the final frame of the commercial or the first frame of the show. The audio will continue most of the time, but not all the time. The only options are to rewind or fast forward 10 seconds, pause or stop. And none of them help. Exit the show and try to open it again and it restarts from the beginning. Total crap. Just sell the series to Netflix so I can watch it properly.


Bring back the old CW app!  ballardlj  1 star

This used to be a great app. The current “updated” one makes it impossible to tell what episodes I’ve already seen, and forces me to swipe to the right to find the next episode, rather than listing them. When I do swipe to the right, the wrong episode starts playing, and when I try to stop it, playback freezes. When I try to pause and then resume playback, it spins way too long, or just hangs altogether. And for some reason it always starts the video playing upside down, so that I have to rotate my iPad to accommodate it. Altogether it’s a terribly dysfunctional app. Bring back the old CW app! It worked great!

This cw app I love it and my favorite tv show is THE 100 and DC LEGENDS AND I had this app A while 3-4yrs now never anything wrong with it and tonight I finished watching my favorite tv shows and if I miss it I will get A notification to watch the new tv episode like tonight ... MAY.23,2019


Good idea but overall a disappointment  JennyJ9986  1 star

I’m so happy to have an option to watch Jane the virgin but between the commercials and the errors it’s almost not even worth it. It will randomly drop the episode and restart from the beginning, even when you choose to continue instead of restart it will re-start your episode anyway and by the time you figure out where you were you’ve watched 5 cw commercials for every spot you try so you’ve watched at least 15 annoying commercials. Then you figure it out but wait...the sound is off so their lips don’t match the words. So you have to reset it again. Right now I’m watching it with a banner across my screen that says up next in 0 seconds...Ringer! The episode has 15 minuets left...It’s another error. I might just wait till it goes to Netflix where I don’t have to deal with this.


Way too much ads!!  domzaaa  3 star

Way too much ads. There is so much ads in a 30 minute show like literally 5 ads between every 5-7 minutes...


Disappointed  Rndrmb  1 star

This app is for people with fungus, psoriasis, eczema etc Be ready to watch commercials for dermatitis creams literally every 7 minutes. I know it's free and I don't mind watching commercials there and there, but this is too much, I'd rather pay $2

This is my nickname35

Great except for the bugs  This is my nickname35  3 star

Please fix the bugs already! When I hit continue watching, it shouldn’t restart the show and vice versa with when I want to restart the show. It’s not even at the right spot when it does work. Plus it just stops working altogether On ads etc. please update This is an awesome app. Just needs bug fixes


Great  Pupplyloverdisney12  5 star

It’s really good I can keep up with my favorite show the flash


FRUSTRATING  Kattytay  2 star

All I want to do is watch Riverdale but it always buffers and maybe the second or third commercial into the show it’ll restart the entire episode and it frustrates me so much. The only reason why I keep it is because the only place I can watch Riverdale is on this app.


Bugs and Ads  Gmdavis12  2 star

I spend more time dealing with bugs and watching ads then I do watching the show. If you want to pickup the show where you left off and you aren’t sure of the exact time stamp, you have to go through every commercial break to get there.


So glitchy  user0717  2 star

I don’t rate apps, but I hate this app. It’s so glitchy and makes it so hard to watch a show. If you don’t watch it all in one sitting, it’s very difficult to scroll back to where you were and you have to watch 10+ commercials.


this app makes me really mad that I had to write a review about it  Gwenamaquesha  1 star

I cannot blame my internet, the streaming on this app is just really horrible. not only do I have to wait after the first ad finishes to scroll, after I let go of my finger is another really long ad. second, sometimes the show I’m currently watching will skip to another show while I’m still twenty minutes in. What the heck. please fix these glitches.


Buggy  Zaxion_Kai  2 star

Recent version has issues with streaming resolution dropping momentarily, as well as skipping backward and forward in the episode, and at one point counted down and switched to a different show in the middle of the show I was watching.


Trash app  Crazykody  1 star

Every time I watch a commercial, it freezes ON the commercial, but resumes to regular tv, with sound, but NO playback from the actual show. This has been happening ever since I downloaded the app a year ago. This app is trash; I love to keep up on my shows through the CW, but it seems that I have to find a different route I’m watching my favorite shows. I HAVE TO RATE THE APP AT LEAST 1 STAR, BUT I AM LETTING YOU KNOW THAT I TRIED TO NOT RATE IT; This app deserves ZERO ratings from me. Please hear me out and fix this, as I am frustrated that I cannot watch 1 clip of the show, before freezing itself on a commercial. Thank you for your time!


Really buggy  ajahdiel93  2 star

I really like the app but every time I’m watching something through casting it to chrome cast I experience numerous audio and visual glitches. Sometimes it’ll skip and rewind itself just overall very glitchy, mostly towards the end of the episode I have noticed.
