Customer Reviews

They actually listened!!!

The shows that air on this app have about 5 or 6 commercial breaks. Each break has about 3 commercials and they are normal length. Even though some CW program commercials repeat that is understandable they want us to watch their shows. I just watched a show and didn't see the same non-CW commercial more than once or twice.

CW needs the commercials to keep these episodes free to watch. However, they listened when people complained about how the play bar was staying on screen, the fact that commercial breaks were showing the same commercials over and over again, and there were too many commercials per break.

I am more than happy to support a company that doesn't try to take advantage of mobile users when their desktop or laptop website gives viewers an easier experience.

Well done CW.

Love this app

It is great because instead of waiting for it to come out on Netflix you can watch it on here. My favorite show ARROW and of course the flash, D.C. Legends are on here. I don't mind waiting for them, to come out on Netflix but it takes a long time. So this helps, although I just wish it came out the same day it Aires tv, not the day after. And the commercials there need to be less or different commercials each time.


It’s good for streaming and catching up on episodes, but it has A LOT of bugs. For example, I’ll be watching The Flash and all of a sudden the video freezes and won’t continue playback; another example is when the audio quality drops and becomes muffled. It’s hard to watch and enjoy shows when these bugs happen so frequently to the point where it’s frustrating. Fix these bugs and the app would be amazing.
