Pros and cons of The CW app for iPhone and iPad

The CW app good for

12/19/16 version works great on iPad Pro with iOS 10.2. Apple TV app works great as well. Enjoy The CW content, no cable subscriber ID required!
Its a good app, runs well, but I wish that it would have all of the episodes in the latest season instead of the latest 5. Can we please see more than 5 episodes?????
Love The CW! Love the app but why do they not have all of the episodes? Example on Supergirl they have "e201,e202, e203 But and then it skips to e207."
Id rather PAY a monthly paid subscription to remove ads........
I love this app on my phone. It has worked perfectly for me. I dont mind the commercials, I mean, I would prefer without them but its free and I can watch the most recent episodes anytime I want.
I recently became very obsessed with CWs shows on Netflix and Im almost nearing the first season of Supergirl. With this FREE APP Ill be able to catch up on at least the first couple of episodes from season 2. Thank you CW

Some bad moments

I have spent the last hour and a half trying to watch a 45 minute episode and still have 15 minutes left. Buffer issues. Commercials repeat over and over or freeze. I have to exit the app and reload the episode and then watch the commercials again. This app is a pile of garbage. I would not even use this app but my directv package does not have The CW in HD. Does not work well with Apple TV. Each commercial kicks you out of the video vie and then reloads. Update: just exited out and resumed my show for the 8th time. I got through the 6 commercials and it resumed 30 seconds before the commercial break (I had just sat though). Not the show has frozen yet again. So in the last 20 minutes I have not watched anything but commercials over and over. Update: ads spent even play right. Watching and episode of a show. Ads flash a freeze frame on screen then a freeze frame of the next and so on. Then a total different episode starts playing. How come the number 18 network has such a bad app? The appleTV app is even worse. If you rewind to a point before a commercial break it will jump to the previous commercial and make you watch it. App time out when paused for more then a few minutes and you have to go back to show and resume. And it jumps you a head by 4 minutes. Some times when you exit the app the audio of what you were watching keeps playing. Total amateur hour.
App closes Every single time I try to watch something. Anything. And only last five episodes? What if I see a new show I like, but I cant watch from beginning? (If only the videos would play
It doesnt show up on my Apple TV. I try to opt for tech support on my phone and it kicks me out!
Boy do I hate this app. It is impossible to search for and locate what I would like to watch. Let alone the ridiculous number of commercials.
Only compatible with ios9. Other previous versions do not work.
If we already pay for the network through our capable package then we should be able to watch any episode of any season of any show. Ridiculous how they give you random episodes from random seasons, and then only offer like 10 random episodes/show.
