No settings. Cannot select nor know what resolution it. It isn't 4k, but usually not terrible digi after a few secs. The video starts as a tiny side box and it takes extra 2 taps to get full screen. Although full screen is a bit of a misnomer, since I have a 21:9 screen. I don't mind letterbox. Where's immersion? I see bright the buttons or stupid gesture pill, hide 'em, plz. 👎🏿Commercials already watched watch again if continuing. Legends of Tomorrow 👍🏿. I have a 4k 21:9 phone. 🦇👎🏾

For past 2+ years this app shows nothing but a black screen with spinning green circle. Goto the CW website and you are only allowed to view 30 second previews of any show. The same results on Roku & HULU.

Frequent errors on comercials. Seems like almost on purpose to force you to stream more. Error. You have encountered an error. GO BACK If not fixed will find another way to watch.

Streaming quality is fine. UX is terrible for a few reasons. - a completely insane number of ads. Example: a 42 min show has 6 ad breaks of 2 - 2.5 mins each. What??? - searching "swamp thing" turns up individual eps only and not the show as a whole so u gotta play the ep to then get to the show hub. NO! - the captions are A DISASTER. when casting they stop appearing and you have to turn them off and then back on again.

App will not open. It shows the splash CW screen and crashes to my home screen. Completely unusable.
