3.3 out of 5
in United States
Constantly stops playing a show.
Randomly in the middle of my show or movie
It will stop like it’s buffering , but then I get a message saying playback error . It’s been doing it for months
I’ve tried everything possible to refresh, delete and download again, erasing cache . Nothing fixes it.
I don’t know how anyone actually likes this app
And uses it.
It needs some serious bug fixes or nothing .
It’s the only app that I can stream and watch certain shows and now I can’t . Super disappointed.
Nice app but needs improvement
When I first downloaded the app and watched a show, watched all of the only season tha was there, I had no big issues. Ya there were glitches like voice still going even when I pushed for the next episode so that overlapped. The app said on “whatever date” season 2 would be on. Unfortunately still to this date I can’t get it on the app. I’ve took it off and redownloaded it so I’m hoping that will fix it. I’m disappointed as I watch another show on here as well and it’s an older show so I know I will not have the same problem since it’s not currently running. Please fix the bugs and I will fix my rating
I HAVE EMAILED COSTUMER SERVICE
THE CW WILL PLAY FOR THE FIRST 20 MINUTES OR UNTIL THE FIRST COMMERCIAL BREAK ONCE THE COMMERCIALS ARE OVER. YOU WILL SEE A NOTICE SAY TROUBLE WITH THE PLAY BACK. AND THE TITLE WILL NEVER EVER PLAY AGAIN. EXPECT COMMERCIALS OVER AND OVER AGAIN. IVE TRIED TAKING A BREAK AND GOING BACK AND TRYING TO WATCH THE SHOW AGAIN. ALL THAT WILL WORK IS A DIFFERENT SHOW THEN YOUR BACK TO THE SAME PROBLEM WITH ALL THE SHOWS THAT CW OFFERS. ITS SAD THE CW HAS REALLY GOOD SHOWS AND MOVIES TO WATCH. IVE SENT EMAIL AFTER EMAIL WITH NO REPLIES FOR MONTHS. IVE NEVER ONCE WATCHED A FULL SHOW. I REALLY WISH THEY WOULD FIX IT. I REALIZE ITS A FREE APP WITH FREE SHOWS. I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO WATCH A FULL SHOW. THANKS
Casting problems and freezing
I used to use Chromecast to cast CW shows to my tv. A few weeks ago, that quit working. I don’t know if it was Google’s Chrome update or a CW website update that broke this feature, but it is awful. I’m still watching your commercials, CW, what does it matter if I am casting them to my tv???? So, I install the CW app. It doesn’t detect my network for several minutes, and when it does, casting doesn’t work correctly. First, just audio, and then when I try it again, it freezes. Overall, horrible experience. Just fix the Chromecast from the web site or truly fix the app to cast correctly. I would much prefer just fixing the web site and letting Chromecast work. Also, can we get an app for the Xbox????
Terrible app with awesome shows
This app is terrible! It lags, it says video isn’t available even thought I was just watching it so I have to close out of it then reopen it a few times, and every time a new episode comes on I have to do that whole process over again. Honestly if it were for the shows on here that I want to watch I wouldn’t bother with it at all. Definitely needs a better working system that’s for sure!
First off, I tested my internet and it’s fine.
I have had to constantly restart the app because “something went wrong with playback” so hour long episodes are taking longer to finish because of the connectivity is so bad
Glitchy, confusing, needs a UX revamp
Every time I watch something on this app the mouths get off from the sound after one of the commercial breaks, and then when I try to pause or anything to fix it I’m unable to. The app is super unintuitive, and extremely frustrating.
The new CW is horrible. The shows are old and the the better shows are gone. Don’t get it, it is a waste of time. I keep coming back to watch something good and nothing good is available.
Worst App in the World
I’ve never seen app that doesn’t promote its live tv options worse then this one. I have tried to watch a sporting event and debate through this channel/app and have had the worst experience in the world.
Terrible Loading Experience
This app does not load well. The experience is very frustrating! However, once it loads it is a good app.
