    I just go this app now, and it has so many shows i like to watch such as riverdale, supergirl, and many more. Also its free! But it does contain 4 or 5 ads every 15 minutes or so. You dont need to make an account, or put in any information at all! Otherwise, i love the app and the shows are high auality! It also is nice you can take screenshots of your show! 5 star rating☺ Full Review

    All it says is "Please check your mobile or wifi network and try again". That's on wifi and 4G. No problems with any other apps. Same message on iPad, and the Xbox app says it's unavailable on my region because I'm not in the United States (even though I am). Guess I'm not watching any of their shows this year... Full Review

    So I started watching Riverdale season one on Netflix and I became obsessed. I heard season two was coming out and would be available on Netflix and/or the actual television channel for the CW. To my surprise, it wasn't released on Netflix and I don't have TV or cable (dinosaur, I know) so I downloaded the CW app on my phone and I was able to watch my show for free the day after it became available on television, small but worthy price! This app is no bs, just the episodes you want to watch, free of charge. Full Review

    This app is almost broke. After ads you never know if the show will restart where the break was. Picture is awful. Why no option for widescreen? Sometimes app stops allowing you to pause and if you close out and try to reopen it will start earlier in the episode and won't give you the option to fast forward. Love CW shows and really wish they would fix the app. Full Review

    What's wrong with this app. I'm trying to watch super girl but the video quality sucks. I upgraded waited a few days and it still sucks. I'm going to uninstall it because there is no point to have it if I can't watch what I was clearly on it. It's disappointing. Full Review

    Kevin Quock Published date: October 19, 2017

    I love the fact that the app is free and you just have to watch a few ads, but the shows are getting pretty badly pixelated to the point where it's frustrating enough to try to watch the show through a different platform. Which sucks because I really want to support the cw and their lineup of great shows. On a related note, I'm at home on my personal wifi, with maybe one or two devices attached and have tried on public wifi and data and the picture is still the same, distorted. Please fix and I will gladly use the app again. Full Review

    Every time I open the app it is only a black screen. It doesn't matter how many times you open the app. I have tried reinstalling it,restarting my phone, simply waiting for long periods of time for something to load but it never does. Full Review

    Scrub Gaming Published date: October 18, 2017

    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. Or update it so I can use it. The new update is useless to me. My app still doesn't work. Full Review

    The advertisements could be a lot sorter. The advertisements doesn't need to be 5 to 10 minutes before it gets back to the show! What's with the stretch full screen on tablets? Okay now for the creators of the CW app need to fix the major bugs on the app now and bring back the regular wide screen for the app. I am having problems with being able to pause or resume the app. The app was working fine before your last updated. I have to restart the app 5 times to watch one episode and that is not right. So please fix this problem. Full Review

    Still failing. Glitchy, bad aspect ratios and bad editing with commercial breaks. Just put your shows back on Hulu and stop trying to be special with your own app. Full Review

    Overall this is a good app and makes seeing shows without a tv subscription easy and free. However, the app makes it difficult to pause without exiting the app entirely. Also the alerts for new episodes does not work Full Review

    Casting function STILL does not play correctly on Android TV devices. It produces a large grey area taking up bottom and right portion of screen. Also, you need to create a native Android TV app. You have one for the fire TV, just port it over. Please fix the casting issue first though. Full Review

    J A Wooten Published date: October 18, 2017

    Terrible sound quality and too many ads. I miss when all their shows were on Hulu. I don't have cable and don't want to torrent though, so I'm stuck with this. It also has glitches that prevent finding where you left off if you bump the screen and occasionally the screen goes all pixelated for no reason, while my phone shows good wifi signal. Overall a subpar streaming service. If I had to pay for it would be one star and deleted. Edit: subtitles regularly fall out of sync and controls occasionally disappear and won't come back unless you exit and restart the app. Full Review
