So Many Commercials
The app seems to work well enough on iPad. I only experienced a few instances of minor buffering. The layout is OK, not amazing and not awful.
That being said, the amount of commercials is ridiculous. There were 6 commercial breaks (with multiple commercials) in each show I sampled. Come on, this is insane. Time is more important to the average consumer than a few dollars per month for a subscription. At least give us a commercial-free option.
I'll be waiting waiting until the end of the season for CW shows to make it to Netflix so I can watch them without being bombarded by ads every 8 minutes. I imagine I'm not alone.
Not optimized for iPhone 6?!
How can you release an app in 2016 that is not optimized for the iPhone 6 and later? I could understand if this came out two years ago when the 6 had just been released, but come on! There is no excuse for this app having to be stretched to fit the screen of larger phones.
Like the new added features 9/28
I just logged on for the first time since my shows season finale. I noticed CW added the 10 second rewind and fast forward option. Thank you.
