Customer Reviews

Love the service... app seems a bit buggy with Chromecast

Not sure if it is the new iOS software or what but just recently there have been issues casting to Google Chromecast. It’s slow/laggy, doesn’t let you control much because the app seems unresponsive, etc. I had to reset it twice during a show because it simply stopped working.

Haven’t had these issues in the past and love that the CW has this app available - maybe it needs some bug fixes with the new software updates! (For the record, I didn’t have any issue with the bar at the bottom showing up during the show... actually, the opposite, I had to exit out and go back into the episode to get that feature to show up at all!)


This app has always been absolutely perfect! A great place to watch my favorite show, For free, on my phone with just a couple of commercials. It’s amazing, but recently, nothing will load. I’ve checked my data and my internet and it’s perfectly fine, but the episodes will not load, and the entire app wouldn’t even load. It said “there are no available episodes at this time” of any show! And I know that I checked just yesterday. I hope this can be fixed.

Great App!

No subscription, no money, few adverts! Amazing app! However, people are complaining about a bug, not sure what they're talking about. I only have two problems, sometimes when the ads are over the videos are very poor quality and buffer a lot. The other problem is the fact that only about 5 episodes are on at a time, I understand why but you should have certain apps for certain shows. By the way I'm hyped for Arrow, and the rest of The Flash
