Close to great but...

I love free access to cw shows since dish network doesn't carry my local cw channel but it misses on some very basic needs. It doesn't save what episodes you have watched across devices or how much of an episode you have watched on one device if you switch between multiple devices. Another huge down fall is the number of commercials you have to watch to fast forward or rewind to a specific spot in the show. I have had to wait for more than ten commercials in a row before, eating up my entire break time trying to simply get back to where I had already seen in an episode. The final complaint is the brash over loudness of those commercials. I have to constantly turn down the volume for commercials and then turn it way up to understand the conversation in the show when it returns from commercials. The app has great potential but needs work.

CW App Needs Improvment

The app lets me access new episodes of my favorite shows which I love, however sometimes the show I'm watching"messes up". And by that I mean it has to pause for several seconds up to a minute to buffer I guess? And then when it comes back it's not always HD clear. However every single commercial that plays is HD clear with no delay. That's unacceptable. It's 2017 for God's sake and if you want to compete in the app world you need to offer your show at a higher quality than the commercials or at least the same quality I mean come on. You need to charge 5, 7 even 10 bucks a month whatever I think people might be down with that especially those who don't have cable then you could watch all your favorite CW shows without having to have a cable service. Customer satisfaction. It used to be the thing that drove the economy like 10 years ago hopefully will get back to that one day we'll see.

Commercials ruin the experience -found workaround

If the commercials are destroying the shows you watch (literally can't stand watching the same ones over and over every few minutes), just close out the app when a commercial comes on and reopen app. Click on show and hit resume and it takes u to the show. I'm willing to do this as I would stop watching CW shows otherwise. App is horrendous. Quits randomly and can't fast forward or rewind without major issue AND rewatching commercials. No it's not like watching on tv. On tv at least there are random commercials. Other apps have commercials and they don't bother me as they aren't so frequent and the same ones. Listen to your viewers or you'll lose them. Not showing much appreciation for the ppl that keep you in business.
