If you want to install and use the The CW app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use The CW for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: The CW for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type The CW in the search bar and press Search. Click on The CW application icon. A window of The CW on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the The CW icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: The CW for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use The CW for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Awesome App! Free with commercials

    By Ablest gabble
    I REALLY LOVE this app!!! If I miss the CW tv shows I want to watch the night before, I can watch them in this app for quite a while after they air on tv before they expire from the app. And it being free just for the normal commercial breaks that the regular shows have is AWESOME!!!!!! I can totally watch commercials if it means a free experience to be able to watch my shows if I miss them when they air!!!! I’m currently addicted to Supernatural and have been since it began airing. Sometimes it’s changing schedule from season to season makes me miss an episode here or there. This app allows me to watch or rewatch an aired episode from the night before to keep up with the story arcs with my favorite CW show! It usually allows a week to 3 weeks or so to watch an episode after it airs. Then it will expire from the app. And since I don’t have much money to pay for a service AND my cell phone, I REALLY appreciate that it’s free, just for the trade off of having commercial breaks build into the show! I can totally live with that!!!!! THANK YOU CW APP!!! 💖
  • Love the Network, App Needs Work (for Apple TV users)

    By XmasYvonne
    I love the CW. Many of my all time favorite shows either were produced or are still being produced by this network, and I appreciate that they offer free streaming with no strings attached, which is EXTREMELY rare these days! The only thing keeping me from submitting a 5 star rating is how poorly the app works when I try screen mirroring or “casting” to my Apple TV via my iPhone or iPad. I have a new iPhone with up to date software, so it isn’t my phone or devices. I’ve always had this issue with the app in this capacity, and it’s SO FRUSTRATING!!! It crashes every time I try to watch something on my Apple TV without fail (or with continuous fail if we’re being literal.) It’ll stream successfully for a few minutes and that’s it. If you’re like me and you watch media on your Apple TV pretty much exclusively, don’t plan on including the CW app in your streaming lineup! :( If you stream directly on a tablet or laptop, you shouldn’t have many issues.
  • why expiration dates?

    By Rachel.Luvs.Cookies
    I just got the app. I was so excited until I found out about the expiration dates. I’m confused, like why do we need them? I have Netflix but let’s be real, they take forever to upload a new season from any show, really. So I downloaded the app to find the seasons that weren’t yet on Netflix. I was looking for the first episode of season 13 on Supernatural, which in my opinion, is the best TV show I’ve ever watched, but I didn’t find it. So now I don’t have a choice but to wait on Netflix. Because if I watch the episodes ahead of time, I wouldn’t have any clue on what’s happening. Also, you guys should really keep on the seasons and episodes of the shows. What if somebody is about to binge watch the seasons of a show. They can’t because the CW only has the recent episodes. Please think about this, I really want to watch my favorite shows. I love this app, if you just added some more improvements, it’d be perfect 👌
  • Recent Update Ruined App

    By VanHeath
    There are several shows on The CW I like to follow (Arrow, Flash, 100). I recently learned a another CW show that I’m really enjoying, Penn & Teller’s Fool Us. It’s a great show. I found that the App has Season 2-5 available. Problem is, the new App layout starts you on the most recently aired episode and to go back to older episodes you have to scroll to the right one episode at a time until you reach the one you want. Then after watching the episode, 80% of the time it does not take you to the next episode but requires you to choose the show from the home menu and then scroll through the episodes again. The old layout made it much easier to get to older episodes. A drop down menu fit selecting episodes would be great and having a more consistent “Up Next” episode after the one you watch finishes is desperately needed. Finally the Continue menu to continue episodes had many episode listed that I’ve already completed and I can not remove episodes from the list.

  • Chrome cast casting isn’t working

    By Huffing kbguj
    I can’t find the chrome cast option in the right top corner and when it’s there it doesn’t find any of my cast options. It asks to type in the code on the tv and it still doesn’t work. All my other TV apps are casting fine. Please get it together I have a lot of shows to watch.
  • This would have more stars

    By LeyannaClay
    Ever since the new update I can’t stream to my tv anymore. Also the set up is a bit confusing. It should just go back how it was. I was streaming fine until the dumb update. Now it’s saying it can’t find my device but hulu and Netflix finds it. It’s stupid
  • Impossible

    By alllayyy
    Starts working then freezes about two minutes in. Have to completely shut it down and start over. Then I have to sit through all the ads for it to get to the place I previously was...only for it to stop working again. Super frustrating.
  • Please

    By kevvo23
    Spanish Please
  • Wanted to watch Carmed

    By BAM943
    I was really looking forward to watching Charmed on my phone in the app so my dad could watch football on the tv, but I guess The CW doesn’t want people watching shows in their app like they claim. Way to go CW, you just lost a viewer of everything you ever put out. I hope your flippin happy about these dissatisfaction of your Cincinnati Market. And I did check my cable proiver, DirecTV, and I don’t even get it here in Cincinnati. Guess you got something against Cincinnati.
  • App concern

    By jessimtz
    The new version doesn’t give you an option to notify you about the schedule 15 minutes ahead.
  • No chromecast icon

    By fuckthisshitzzzzzzzzzz
    Latest update took away chromecast icon. That and added in more commercials than prime time TV
  • Won’t pickup my chromecast

    By Truck herb
    I had no problem before but now it won’t pick up my chromecast. I don’t know if this app had been updated. Very disappointing
  • Awesome CW Shows, iPad App Needs a Fix

    By 330Ciyes
    This was a great app! Unfortunately version 3.0.9 (on my iPad Professional) running iOS 12 now seems to want to do landscape mode for selecting videos instead of the better approach, since I’ve got a keyboard) of staying in PORTRAIT mode. My screen rotation is locked (again in portrait) so I’m not even sure how it’s doing this. The app / content are all still good if you can please fix this. Great ad supported app to watch Arrow, Flash & Legends of Tomorrow on the go. Occasionally it lags feeding ads to these should be spliced into the show for one continuous stream but otherwise great!
  • Curiosity

    By why keep it
    The app is great but will we ever get a live show feature?
