Amazing but we're are all the episodes

This app was so great at the beginning. I found it so helpful whenever I was bored I just pulled out my phone and watch TV my favorite superhero shows and a bunch of other stuff. But when I started to stop watching a few shows and then I wanted to catch up I couldn't find last seasons episodes on the app and I couldn't find it on TV so it became really really frustrating. Then I was waiting for shows to come on TV keep checking the app but they were just nowhere to be found it's like telling me that I can get anything on demand but then not having the entire show it's so annoying. But this app is overall really really nice it's great for when you're just bored and you want to watch shows but there's not a TV so you just pull your phone out and watch your shows catch up on them it's great. the only thing I don't like is how not all episodes of one show or on the app. But overall it was a really nice app and I hope they get some updates and fix the problem with the with the no episodes problem.

Upgrade Fixed The Crash Bug (Thank You)

CURRENT REVIEW: Just perfection at its best. This is a 5-star app, hands down, thumbs up. Kudos to the entire develoment & management teams 👍👍👍

PREVIOUS REVIEW: The upgrade patch fixed the app, and it no longer crashes (kudos). The only suggestion would be to make a RESUME feature as it had before do a show could be started from where it left off during a prior viewing. That was a major downgrade to remove that feature. I figure 3 stars is fair since you downgraded the app.

PREVIOUS REVIEW: The upgraded app crashes incessantly. Videos always crash half way through a show, and there is no way to RESUME from where you left off any longer. So, when it crashes (constantly), you have to start over from the beginning or try to use the slider which throws you into a dozen commercials only to crash again after they are done. Was a top-notch app that seems to have digressed to something quite dysfunctional. I hate to give such a poor review, but the app is severely malprogrammed.

PREVIOUS REVIEW: The app is fast, navigation is excellent, and it simply does not crash like many of the others. I've never had the screen freeze up once since installed, so CWTV Programmers are doing an excellent service to the iPad community. The video playback is spectacular in all regards. Thank you, CWTV!!!

Watch favorite shows

Using the CW App is the best way to keep up on your favorite shows. Usually the episodes appear on the app the day after it is on TV. I watch in my own time! seems to crashing more recently, usually at the beginning of a commercial. This can be annoying because often it is necessary to restart the video because it will not resume playback.
Part 2
"Resume Playback" has been fixed, thank you. But commercials are still locking up and causing the app to crash. I realize they are paying you for the time, but they shouldn't be allowed to make this app useless. I would rather pay for the app to avoid commercials.
My complaints have been resolved! This app is now what you'd expect from the professionals at CW. Thank you!
