Every Show On The CW Will Be Free To Stream On The CW App
Attention Cord Cutters, more free streaming tv is headed your way! Starting next week the CW will be bringing every show they have to their CW apps for free. That’s right, all those good CW shows you know and love like Supergirl, The Flash, Jane The Virgin, Arrow, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Supernatural, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The 100, The Originals and my personal favorite, iZombie will be on the app. Since the CW announced their parting of ways with hulu this might just be the fastest way to get your CW fix, although as announced earlier this year the company has signed an agreement with Netflix that will put whole seasons up on the streaming service just days after ending.

The CW app in question runs on a multitude of platforms like Android, iOS, Roku, Chromecast, Airplay, Windows 8 &10, Xbox one & 360, and Amazon Fire TV & Fire TV Sticks, so no matter what the center of your HTPC / Home Theater setup you are likely going to be able to take advantage of this. The best part, you don’t need a cable subscription to get on board. That’s right, the CW gets it. We at Theaterverse are already big fans of the CW because of their programming, but now we have a whole new reason to love them.
With cord cutting becoming much more prevalent, and people becoming more resistant to overpriced cable and satellite subscriptions it is a smart move to embrace the changing tides. As an advertiser, it pays to get your ads in front of as many eyeballs as possible, whether those eyeballs are paying for cable or not. It makes sense for marketers to jump onboard, it makes sense for the networks to provide their content in an easy to consume and ultimately profitable way, and it is good for consumers who would rather get content without having to resort to huge bills or less than legal means. The only ones losing are the cable and satellite companies, and with years of price gouging and anti-consumer behavior (looking at you, Comcast!) it is hard to find anyone to sympathise.
What device will you be using to get your iZombie on this fall? Let us know below.
