Customer Reviews

Chromecast issues

This app currently does not cast to chromecast. When selecting to cast, it will show the CW app is connected, however when you select a show to watch, you receive a spinning wheel on the television. Then after a while it drops the connection and reverts back to your default chromecast screen - it does not even go back to the cw screen. Sometimes it will start playing the show on your phone after dropping the connection. As far as I can tell, there are no issues actually playing it on your phone but I really don't like to be in my home with an available television yet looking into my tiny phone screen to watch a show. That's just not for me so I really hope this can be fixed soon. Thanks.

Does what it needs to

I don't see why anyone is giving this app a bad review. I've never had a problem streaming a tv show. I have chrome cast and I stream to my tv a few times a week to catch up on my favoriteCW shows. Streaming is seamless unless my husband is also using the internet, but that's not an app issue, it's a slower internet speed issue. I love the app.

Other episodes?

I love this app and it's great for watching newer episodes of shows! The thing is I have wanted to start watching riverdale and when I saw it was on the app for free I was so excited... but I can only find episodes 1-3 and then episodes 12 and 13. I really want to continue watching and not have to pay for it. Is this just because I can't find the episodes or is the app just used so people can watch the newer episodes?
