Ratings and Reviews
Many bugs in this app.
I’ll start by saying that I never watch tv so it’s nice to be able to keep up with my favorite show (Riverdale) on my own schedule. Of course the episodes do expire after a couple of weeks, so you have to stay on top of it. It’s also nice how they release the episodes only a day or 2 after they air so I’m not having to wait months to watch it on Netflix. The reason I’m only giving 3 stars is because there are many bugs still needing to be fixed with this app. First, I just opened the app and the home screen was completely blank so I had to delete and redownload the app and it’s still not working. Really hope they fix this soon. Second, there are WAY too many ads, “commercials”. You can’t pause or exit the show during the commercials either, you’re just stuck watching them. Third, they have an option for “continue watching” if you had to stop watching an episode, but it only redirects you to the right place in the show 50% of the time. Most of the time it’ll take you to the beginning or take you back to a commercial and make you watch that again before you can continue. And when you try to fast forward to where you were in the show it stops you at the commercials and makes you watch multiple sets of 80 second ads before you can actually skip to where you were in the show.
Overall I’ll still choose to deal with all of the bugs because I want to see the show. But i really wish they would address the MANY problems with this app.
Awesome App! Free with commercials
I REALLY LOVE this app!!! If I miss the CW tv shows I want to watch the night before, I can watch them in this app for quite a while after they air on tv before they expire from the app. And it being free just for the normal commercial breaks that the regular shows have is AWESOME!!!!!! I can totally watch commercials if it means a free experience to be able to watch my shows if I miss them when they air!!!!
I’m currently addicted to Supernatural and have been since it began airing. Sometimes it’s changing schedule from season to season makes me miss an episode here or there. This app allows me to watch or rewatch an aired episode from the night before to keep up with the story arcs with my favorite CW show! It usually allows a week to 3 weeks or so to watch an episode after it airs. Then it will expire from the app.
And since I don’t have much money to pay for a service AND my cell phone, I REALLY appreciate that it’s free, just for the trade off of having commercial breaks build into the show! I can totally live with that!!!!!
THANK YOU CW APP!!! 💖
Two things I dislike
The first thing is there are way too many ads. Ok so I get you have to have ads to have a free app, but can’t you make it so if I was at a part after an ad I don’t have to go through all the ads. I mean every 6-12 minutes there is a series of 6 ads and not even different ones. Usually they are almost exactly the same as the last series of ads I watched. It’s soooo annoying. Second thing is that they app only has the last 5 episodes of the tv series. So if I want to watch a new series that has 10 episodes I have to find the first 5 episodes on other apps or websites and it’s quite annoying. I usually end up using other apps/websites instead of this one for these reasons. I know you can’t get rid of all ads and maybe you can’t even make every episode of a show available but it would be nice to not have sooo many ads and at least AT LEAST the 10 latest episodes of a tv series. I suggest to only use this app if you have patience for ads and you are on the lasted 5 episodes of a show. So honestly only download this if you don’t have another app that has your favorite shows.
