Why aren't older episodes of Riverdale available on The CW App?

Due to legal restrictions on streaming, we're only allowed to stream the five most recently aired episodes. If an older episode of Riverdale re-airs on TV, then it will become available to stream on The CW App and CWTV.com.

You can follow the on-air schedule at cwtv.com/schedule to see if an older episode will be re-airing.

The CW App and site are the only places where you can watch new episodes for free during the season.
