  • App freezes on launch screen.

    By Aaaahhh
    Freezes on an empty green/black gradient screen.
  • Freezes constantly

    By playwithclay
    I can never watch a show without having to close down and reopen the app after EVERY ad.
  • Ok

    By kkapril2007
    Not so many shows but great ones they also should have the whole show instead of just a few episodes
  • Lag time

    By Snapecharmer
    Please please PLEASE update this app. There so much lag time, and it doesn’t matter what platform I use this on. Constantly backtracking to sync up the voices. It’s SO FRUSTRATING. Better than nothing, but if the app would just play smoothly on a computer or a phone I’d give this five stars.
  • meh

    By umm wyd cw
    This app is great for watching episodes of your show that are on tv at the moment. But I really wanted to watch riverdale and I did watch it when it was on Netflix so then I went to watch it on the app and I could not get season 3 from the start. This is really annoying because I know they say they only stream the latest episodes but what is the harm in putting the whole season on the app if anything it would make the app more popular and therefore boosting the amount of pay they make. So this app was completely useless for me because I can stream it from the beginning.
  • Restarts show

    By idknomore
    I got the app because I watch many shows on the CW but when I get tired of watching or I leave the app for a while it exits my show (not the problem) BUT when I go back to watch it it gives me the option to restart or continue when I press continue it doesn’t even go to the part I stopped watching the show at big problem if I don’t know when i stopped watching the show at ! And also when I click to make it go 10 seconds ahead it goes for less than 1 second and DISAPPEARS so not only does it not continue on the part I stopped i have to struggle to find out where I stopped please fix this issue
  • A lot of glitches

    By macakerz
    At first I gave the app a three because I was able to watch my favorite shows with minor technical issues. Now I’m give it a two because I have experience a lot of glitches and my screen going dark. I have restarted the app every time after a commercial because the show won’t pop up or because it’s froze on the commercials and my show will continue to play.
  • Replay doesn’t work

    By goodtoseeyoucharlie
    I love the CW shows!!! But this app makes it hard to replay a show you want to watch over and over again. It’s impossible. Is there a trick. I do love the fact that you can watch the shows with limited commercials although I wish you could watch them without the same commercials allllllll the time!!! Aside from the replay not working I like this app.

  • Glitchy

    By JohnnyLaPasta
    The CW App seems to go through phases where it works seamlessly after one update, but then is riddled with glitches after the next update. The current glitches make it almost unbearable to watch any show as it buffers and skips almost every 3 minutes. You would imagine there would be more intelligent tech teams attending this app for such a large network, but apparently subpar is passing over at the CW.
