Attention all fans of Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, and 90210 – wait there’s a new 90210? – of the world: you can now watch your beloved shows on-demand using your Android phone or tablet.
The CW Network has released an official Android app that lets fans watch shows whenever they get the chance. The app has full episodes of every prime time show on the CW available to stream on-demand. Entire seasons are not included in the app, but it does have the five most recent episodes. Viewers can browse through an entire network stream or look at only one show’s listings.
Fans of the CW get benefits from using the app even if they don’t want to watch full episodes. The CW Network app has behind-the-scenes interviews and special feature videos to go along with previews of upcoming episodes. Cast photos, episode summaries, a prime time broadcast schedule, notifications when a show is set to air, and links to the network’s Facebook/Twitter stream are also available.
I don’t watch any of the CW’s primetime programming, but this is exactly the kind of thing that every network should offer. The CW has almost everything that you could reasonably expect from a TV company to provide in a mobile app, and its not just a lame promotional tool like some other companies have put forward. Fans of the CW should grab the app from Google Play now. Android 2.2 or higher is required for the app, and not all devices are supported.
