Cw Legal Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The CW Television Network (commonly referred to as just The CW) is an American English-language free-to-air television network that is operated by The CW Network, LLC, a limited liability joint venture between the CBS Entertainment Group unit of ViacomCBS; and the Studios and Networks division of AT&T's WarnerMedia, the parent company of Warner Bros., former majority owner of The WB. The network's name is an abbreviation derived from the first letters of the names of its two parent corporations (CBS and Warner Media.).
Mustapha mentioned, "Not good for anyone outside the USA have been watching the DC shows on the CW for many years now. I have always waited to watch them legitimately and have stayed on top of them this whole time. But I have faced a test this past year as the management of CW shows outside of the US has been in shambles. As I said, I have always refused to watch these shows through illegal methods, meaning I have had to wait for the UK release. Now its bad enough that the CW still insists on waiting for international release until after the US. In this day in age, there is no longer any excuse to not release worldwide at the same time. But for the sake a few weeks, I can wait. But this year, the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover took 5 months to arrive in the UK. In which time I had many plot points spoiled for me. FB pages for the shows I loved repeatedly advertise a catch up service online, to watch these shows straight after release. But alas, this service is only available in the US. So 5 months later, the shows finally come back to UK. Only 4/5 of the episodes air though. Sky, who normally airs these shows in the UK, did not have the rights to Batwoman, meaning I needed to wait longer for E4 to acquire the rights to Batwoman/ part 2 of Crisis. I wait longer for Batwoman, I then wait a further 9 weeks for Batwoman to catch up to Crisis. I now have 9 episodes of Flash, Legends and Supergirl to catch up on. I have fallen so far behind. Week 9 comes around. Episode 9/ part 2 of crisis is not being shown. E4 says they are going to wait til August to show it, 9 months after it released in the US. Meanwhile i am falling even further behind with the rest of the shows, more spoilers are being revealed and i am loosing all patience and interest. Why do you treat international audiences like this? I respect the fact that Sky and E4 should share the blame but I also suspect that their hands are tied by CW. Again, you have the ability to release your shows world wide. So do it. I feel let down by a network whose shows I have supported for years. Its nonsense like this which makes me question why I don't just illegally download these shows. CW could at the very least make their catch up services available world wide. On top of this, they have made several animated shows which tie into the DC shows which are available on their CW app, CWseed. But surprise surprise, not available outside the US. I have about lost patience with CW. If it wasn't bad enough that they treat international audiences so bad, it gets worse that they are driving their shows into the ground. Legends is but a shell of its former greatness. Arrow went down hill before it was finished (the finale of which I still can't watch because I need to watch Crisis first.) Batwoman has been somewhat enjoyable but it has been bogged down with controversy and most recently the lead actress leaving the project. These shows are dropping in quality and I feel let down by the company as a whole. If you live in the US, I'm sure that this is fine. And good for you. But if you don't live in the US, this company does not appear to care about you at all."
