Why aren’t all episodes of my favorite CW shows available?

Due to streaming rights, only the latest five aired episodes of most of our existing shows are available on cwtv.com and The CW App. Once five episodes from a current season are available, the oldest episode will be removed each time a new one is added. Because we follow the on-air schedule that may include re-runs, the episodes may not always be in order.

You can follow the on-air schedule at cwtv.com/schedule to see what episodes are airing/streaming each week. 

The following series have every episode (after they air) of current seasons available to stream free:
Batwoman, Nancy Drew, DC's Stargirl, Superman & Lois, Walker, Kung Fu, Coroner, The Republic of Sarah, Swamp Thing, Killer Camp, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Masters of Illusion, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Tell Me A Story, Pandora and The Outpost. 

Please note that The CW App and cwtv.com are the only places that you can watch free full episodes.

For CW Seed content, sometimes specific episodes of a series are unavailable due to streaming rights as well. This would explain why certain episodes are not showing up on the app or site.
