Fan of shows but hate the app - Don't bother

I am sick of the cw app. I love all of their shows but you are way better off just recording the shows on TV. I had missed an episode of B&B because of some stupid basketball game played instead so I went to my cw app to watch the full episode. Well my app was out of date and unlike every other app out there this one makes you download a whole new app instead of just updating the one that's there. So then I found the episode and first there was several commercials. I'm away from my wifi so I start noticing that there are a ton of commercials and i start worrying about how much data I'm paying to download that is just advertisements vs content. During the next commercial break I count the commercials. When it got to 7 I said F-this and just killed it. Not only that but normally if I don't want to hear a commercial or something playing I just flip my iPhone ringer switch to off and that usually mutes any app or game I'm using. Not so with this app. You have to turn the sound all the way down in order to mute it. When I went to the chat room to leave a comment (since there is no contact help to speak of) it crashed all 3 times i tried to add a comment to a cw posted message. How pervasive and obnoxious do commercials have to be before its just not worth it? Well I don't know about you but this was way past my limit. I'd rather get it on fios or wait for the mid season repeats. Long story short - Don't get this App!

ARDiaries - Carrie Diaries

Evidently the technicians responsible for this app are sleeping on the job. Episodes are not loading correctly. It says there is a new episode of The Carrie Diaries, but it keeps playing the previous episode. Also, not just in this show, but all others, the commercials freeze up and you have to reload the video. Someone please fix these bugs!!!

Mr-P_123 - To many ads!

It takes longer to watch a show on this app then watching it during live its broadcast.

Ads are slow and long. Takes almost 2 hours to watch a show that is only 45 minutes.

TheHumbleRooster - Audio Only

Please take away the audio only feature! I really don't think there's anyone that would rather listen to their show than wait a couple minutes for it to load.

K!MMiKaT - Pretty Good but today...

This app would be GREAT if it didnt freeze during the commercials, so then i have to exit and resume. and the commercials are really long sometimes. BUT TODAY the episode wont even play without crashing. Sorry CW, but you get a 1 star rating for today.

There are way to many commercials, and when you try to skip ahead, it NEVER works. It always freezes on a stupid commercial. This app is not good.

BAD-BAD-BAD - This is the worst App

I can NEVER finish a full episode. It always freezes and kicks me out, when I got back in I have to start over.

Purplspacecow - CwTv App

It's not very great. It doesn't let me watch the shows, just goes to 'more information' and when it does let me watch them, it doesn't load, but says, 'try again later'.

Date: Device: 1.5 using The CW Network


hello.goodbye - Used to be great

Some of the ads don't load, so the only way to get back to the show is to force quit the app. This happens a LOT. Other times, it will just play audio of the show, even though there's not a problem with my network connection & I can play videos in other apps with no problem. This is really annoying.

Vane134gf - Failed to play

I was so excited to get this app since I'm usually on the go and miss a lot of my shows, I thought I'd be able to watch them but the app won't play them. It starts to load the show then bounces me out to my home screen. Not a good app. Fix it and ill change my rating.

Smellie32 - COMMERCIALS PAUSE

The commercials pause and skip so it takes 3 times as long to get through them and the video performance is unstable and pauses! This is with a good wifi connection so please do not pin it on that! Please fix this! I am getting frustrated!

Lampout - Poor playback quality

Very glitchy. Almost always switches to audio only format, asking me to try again when signal is stronger or network is less congested. (It plays the commercials though!) even on wifi it rarely works.

jwvanderbeck - Can't ever play videos

All the app ever does is tell me the server is full and it can't play the video. Pretty useless.

Europa5 - Don't bother.

27 minutes of commercials per every 44 minute show. Add to that the fact that EVERY show gets caught in the middle so that you have to start over from the beginning, watching ALL the same commercials again and you have more commercials than tv show. Not worth it. Shame too, because I wanted to get into some of the new shows and found it so nice that this app let me start at the pilot, but nope, not worth it and they lost a potential new fan.

New upadate4iPadSUCKS - Always freezes

Every commercial, every few minutes, this app freezes, doesn't matter if I'm on wifi or my coverage. I would love this app if the commercials didn't freeze up the shows ;^\

Commercials don't close. I have to keep clicking resume. Poor sound quality. Site is difficult to navigate. Too many ads. Try watching the ABC Player ad you will see the difference.

Major problems with app...keep getting message audio feed only/connect to wifi network and I AM on an AT&T wifi network. Very aggravating since WOULD like to use the app on my iPad.

PRAYER&SUPLIC810 - Forced download

Tried to watch through the Internet but was forced to download the app to watch an episode.

Disappointed14536 - Awful

This app is painful to use once you are trying to watch a show. If you would like to fast forward to another part of the show the system freezes. I started an episode and needed to fast forward to a different section, in the process it took the app five minutes to process that request. Then I had to watch about five commercials before I could see the show again. So then I got to watch about two minutes of my show and then the picture went blank and had a message about the stream only being audio and in order to fix it come back at a time when there is less congestion. This has happened to me several times in the last couple of days. This app makes it difficult to watch cw shows and makes me want to stop watching the network because it is a hassle to watch their shows on demand.

ShelbyLyst - Horrible app

It closes out all the time. Too many commercials. NO APP SUPPORT. If you have a mobile device you can't access the full website. And anytime you go to the website it takes you straight to the app. The only thing it's good for is having some of the videos And even then sometimes they don't work.

RubyBe - C W viewer

The worst I have ever seen. There are too many commercials and when the show resumes, it starts from the beginning. Tried for an hour and a half to get through a one hour show. I never made it. Check out some of the other successful apps. See ya,

Greenkiwi2000 - Can't move through episode w/o watching ALL commercials

I'm not against watching commercials in videos, however, I watched 3/4 of a show on my iPad and then went to watch the last 10 minutes on the iPhone. It forced me to move "one segment" at a time, and watch the two or more ads before every single segment before I could forward to the next one. Just plain brutal. Until they fix it… one star for being so painful

DEJ-II - Locked up

Bad enuf that we can't rewind/ff because of commercials....but locking up and being unresponsive? Pathetic! Yup- still freezes constantly. Plus, they make you watch the same commercial 5 or 6 times in a row during the commercial break!
