Why aren't older episodes of my favorite shows available on The CW App?

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

Due to legal restrictions on streaming, we're only allowed to stream the five most recently aired episodes. However, if an older episode of your favorite shows re-air 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.
