Guide To CW App

Step 1. Once you download it, Restart your computer 2-4 times before it starts working again. Step 2. Go to the show you want to watch and start it, It only takes 10 minutes for the ads to pass through. Step 3. Be ready to Rewind it every time it buffers( only does this about 20 times) Step 4. Restart your computer 3 more times if it closes out.

doesn't work

The actual app opens fine. Problem is that when I click on a link to a video, nothing plays. I've tried several different series, full episodes and clips, it's all the same. Uninstalled and reinstalled the app and the same thing, no video. Uninstalling now

Does not work

Does not play videos, when you click on a video, the player window flickers and nothing happens. Your android version works great, to bad that quality doesn't carry over to windows. After reading some of the reviews I'm not the only having this issue.

Stopped Working Almost Immediately

I was able to watch a couple of episodes on this app (with very poor video quality, mind), and now it won't load the episodes at all. My advice: stick with watching in your browser until they can get this thing fixed.

This app never plays video

I think maybe once this app has actually played video. Any other time video refuses to load. The viewer loads as you can see the controls but video never plays. The CW would be better off just making the app a portal for its webpage which consistently loads and plays video.

fix asap

When I first downloaded the app it was working fine and I could watch my shows on here but as of lately the app when i load up the app and when I click on a episode to watch only a black screen will appear and not even the ads that usually show up first pop up. CW please fix this asap many people love your shows and will probably be forced to watch your shows on other sites.

I like that I can watch The Flash season 2 and Arrow season 4 without waiting forever for it to come on Netflix. What I don't really like is that there are too many advertisements. The app also freezes occasionally. Even though some of the series are on there mid-season finale break, the app should still show all the episodes. I think this because before the mid-season I would like to watch all the episodes over. But I cannot do that now unfortunately.

It works very well and everything but sometimes I feel like I watch more ads then shows. I also like how I don't have to wait for it to come on NETFLIX and I can stay updated. If I miss an Episode I can just go on the app and catch up.

Love this!!!

I love the fact that it allows you to watch re runs of shows! The app its self has a few minor issues. There are way to many adds. When you are watching a show like 15 adds will pop up every 15 seconds! otherwise I recommend it!

Won't Work Anymore

I've used this app before and it had great quality without buffering, recently however, I can't get episodes to play.
