The CW has announced that they won’t be going Ad-Free in their app anytime soon.
With the percentage of people cutting the cord, it’s not odd for people to use apps to catch up on their favorite shows. The CW has been a hit with people to get the favorite show they love the very next day. But if you are looking for an Ad-Free option to their app think again.
When Mark Pedowitz, The CW President, spoke at the TCA (Television Critics Association) he said:
“We’ve discussed it in the past. We made a conscious choice to be an Ad-VOD service. We felt there were not enough Ad-VOD services out there. There is a limitation to how much people will pay. In addition, we did not have enough girth to offer the consumer something that made economic sense.”
But of course, if you do want to watch your favorite CW show without ads you can purchase the season on Amazon, iTunes, and other online video services. Those videos get in your library the very next day.
