The CW made good on its promise to bring shows like Supergirl, The Flash, and iZombie to Apple TV for free. The network’s Apple TV app is available now, and doesn’t require a cable or satellite subscription to watch, or need any sort of login.
Watching shows for free comes at a price, and in this case it’s commercials and limited content. CW is running ads at the commercial break points in its shows, and is only showing current series along with the last five episodes. That means if you’re hoping to get caught up on The Flash season 1 you’ll have to watch on Netflix instead.
You’ll need an fourth generation Apple TV to use the new CW app, but third generation model users have options, too. The CW also updated its iPhone and iPad app with support for AirPlay so you can stream shows from your iOS devices. Both are free, and you can download the Apple TV version by searching for “CW” in the Apple TV App Store app on your television.
