Cord-cutters, take note: the CW network has released a free app that allows all fourth-generation Apple TV owners to watch new episodes of shows on the network for free with no cable authentication or login required. It accompanies the free app for the iPhone and iPad.
All of the shows on The CW, — including Supergirl, The Flash, Jane The Virgin, Arrow, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, iZombie, Supernatural, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, The 100 Vampire Diaries, Reign, and The Originals — are available to watch — with ads, of course. Just download the app and click play on a show to watch.
In addition to full episodes, iOS device users can opt in to receive notifications about new shows and access extra content like behind-the-scenes footage, cast interviews and more. The CW's iOS and Apple TV apps focus on only the newest episodes, with no archived content available from past seasons. Only five episodes from the most recent season are available to watch. But, hey, the apps are free.
