What Do Users Think of This App?

  • Great on iPhone, but...

    By HeMaFr34
    I love streaming with this app on my iPhone and I have zero issues. I’d love to give it 5 stars, but when I try to stream on Amazon Fire Stick I cant. I can open the app and click on any show but when it comes tine to stream it just churns and churns no matter what. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the app but that hasn’t helped. :( is love to watch the shows on my TV and not just always on my phone.
  • App runs well until you watch anything

    By Gumball. Gurger
    There are so many ads and if you look at anything other than the app it pauses. Any time I want to look at my notifications it pauses. And half the time when I’m in an ad and look at my notifications page something messes up and i have to go out of the app. Then when I go back in half the time it hasn’t saved my progress which wouldn’t be awful if you could move the time to when you left off but you can’t because the ads block you from moving so you have to watch all of the ads even the ones you’ve already watched.
  • It’s good but freezes

    By Glen dkwle lake
    Each time I finish watching the ads it just freezes. Like each time an ad finished the video doesn’t want to load it just get stuck in the ad. I can go back and I do it again it gets stuck again please fix it I’m tryna watch arrow
  • Too many bugs

    By NikoGk
    This app used to be a five; however, it dropped it down to a one because of the commercials bug that started when iOS11 was released. After a commercial plays, it freezes and I have to force quit the app. The issue persists on AppleTV, iPad mini, and iPhone (latest models). I’ll bring back the five ratings once the issue is solved. The content is a five.
  • Greenhouse

    Please put up the new season of greenhouse
  • The thing keeping me from saying a 5 star

    By I love the cw and play station
    It is not on the play station, I can never watch this on my play station like I can watch Netflix, it would be cool if I were able to sit back and not hold my phone to watch my favorite shows of all time.
  • Episodes (mainly Charmed and Legacies)

    By my review enjoy
    I like this app don’t get me wrong, but the episodes that are on the app either skip around or they don’t start on episode one. For example with Legacies, I was looking for season two episode one but you guys didn’t have it. All I’m going to say is have all the seasons to a show and all the episodes because I was really looking forward to seeing that episode but couldn’t, and when I try to find that show in another place they cost money. If you guys want the 5 stars add all the seasons to the shows on the app and all the episodes that go with the seasons. Also there are way to many commercials but that’s ok.
  • PlayStation app

    By Wacko8379
    Needs a PlayStation app. Tired of looking at my phone to watch something on the app. Besides that love the app and shows
  • It doesn’t work!

    By bsnsnjdnenwnsjdksnsbdn
    I have been trying to use this app for several months. My phone is fully updated and I have full bars. The app will open very quickly but when I want to watch a show, it will load for hours at a time. Over the 3-4 months that I’ve had this app, it hasn’t worked once. It’s a complete waste of time and data! I highly recommend to not download this app. I’ve tried a lot of the shows on the app and none of them work. Someone please help me understand why the app isn’t working!
  • still has major issues

    By LadyA-
    Casting is a nightmare but watching from my phone isn’t any better. In fact, it almost is not worth watching because the audio is constantly off from the show. If you somehow manage to fix it, commercials always overlap with the show between each commercial, starting 30 seconds too early and ending 30 seconds too late. Since the newest update, the audio goes out anywhere within a scene, so you are guaranteed to constantly miss chunks of your shows at every chance. Also, unlike other apps this one doesn’t recognize when you’ve already watched a commercial so if you rewind (the only way To fix the awful audio issue) you’ll have to rewatch the whole lineup of commercials from scratch (better since the patch but still happens) and if you switch from your phone to cast to another device, the your show restarts from the beginning. The CW missed the mark here. The smaller channels do a much better job with their apps so there is no excuse for this app to be so horrible.
