Awesome App! Free with commercials

Ablest gabble

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!!!!!

Love the Network, App Needs Work (for Apple TV users)


I love the CW. Many of my all time favorite shows either were produced or are still being produced by this network, and I appreciate that they offer free streaming with no strings attached, which is EXTREMELY rare these days! The only thing keeping me from submitting a 5 star rating is how poorly the app works when I try screen mirroring or “casting” to my Apple TV via my iPhone or iPad. I have a new iPhone with up to date software, so it isn’t my phone or devices. I’ve always had this issue with the app in this capacity, and it’s SO FRUSTRATING!!! It crashes every time I try to watch something on my Apple TV without fail (or with continuous fail if we’re being literal.) It’ll stream successfully for a few minutes and that’s it. If you’re like me and you watch media on your Apple TV pretty much exclusively, don’t plan on including the CW app in your streaming lineup! :( If you stream directly on a tablet or laptop, you shouldn’t have many issues.
