What is The CW, and how can I watch it?

The CW is a free American TV network and the joint venture of CBS and Warner Bros. The name comes from the first initials of each of the parent corporations.

It provides masses of live and on-demand programming, screening some of the most popular programs on television.

You can expect to see shows like Supernatural, Nikita, The Vampire Diaries, Jane the Virgin, Riverdale, and some of the best DC Universe series you could expect to find.

The CW airs in most parts of the US and is free to view. It’s also available via the CW Network as your primary streaming option.

The CW is also available through various other streaming services, including Fubo TV, Hulu + Live TV, AT&T Now and YouTube TV. However, all of those packages come with a fee, so it makes far more sense to stream it directly via its own platform as your best budget option. Nobody can do it cheaper than free, after all.

How can I watch The CW with StreamLocator?

The CW is only available for viewers located in the US, but that isn’t a problem for StreamLocator. Our unique system provides a new virtual location that permits access to all of The CW’s content.

With the business end of the process sorted, all that’s left for you to do is decide which show you’re going to watch first!

No complicated settings or software installation required

There are no special settings to change on your devices, nor is there an abundance of software to install on your Mac, PC, smartphone, tablet, or any other device. You don’t have to concern yourself with switching servers or adding DNS profiles.

One of the most significant advantages of using StreamLocator is that all the hard work is done with our unique router box. Your location information is reconfigured and applied from there. At no point do you need to do anything with the devices you access the Internet with—apart from switching your WiFi network over to your new StreamLocator option.

This clever design means that the StreamLocator router box is compatible with your Apple and Android phones and tablets, you Xbox, PS4, Wii, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV and anything else you can think of.

Our smart hub comes with your subscription and won’t have any impact whatsoever on your Internet speed. It plugs into any existing WiFi router, and it only takes a few simple steps to set up your account and get you ready to roll.

We’ve even made sure you can access as many different channels, packages and programs in as many different countries as you need. That means you can connect as many devices as you want (as long as your network speeds can cope!), from anywhere in your home.

How to watch The CW from outside the USA

Like many international TV networks and channels, The CW uses geolocation technology to allow access only to those viewers in the same country.

A VPN or DNS application can hide your location and provide the illusion that you’re in the US—where you need to be to view The CW—and that’s the type of workaround you’ll need to watch it for yourself.

How to register for The CW from outside the USA

There’s no problem registering for The CW from wherever you are—because there is no registration option!

Access the website or your app, and you’re ready to go. Everything’s available, and there are no restrictions—apart from your location of course, but with StreamLocator, you’ve already got that covered.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch The CW from outside the USA?

A VPN or DNS solution will provide a suitable workaround to be able to watch The CW and all of its glorious content. Either of these will circumnavigate the geolocation blockers designed to put a stop to your viewing pleasure.

It’s becoming much more frequent (with the advancement of technology) that more servers are detecting VPN and DNS applications and overriding their abilities. That’s why StreamLocator is so effective. It doesn’t use one specific option, but a combination of all the workaround technologies currently available.

We’re not saying there aren’t some great applications for VPN and Smart DNS—there are. When it comes to protecting your data and sensitive information, a VPN is the ideal choice if you’re using a shared network or accessing the Internet over public WiFi.

But if you’re looking at ways to access geo-blocked TV from your home, there really is only one option worth considering.

How to unblock The CW

StreamLocator makes unblocking The CW from wherever you are in the world as easy as possible.

Unpack the router, plug it into any open port on your existing WiFi router, follow the simple steps to activate your account, and you’re ready to go.

StreamLocator communicates with the servers and returns all the complex information they need—without you having to lift a finger.

Whether you want to watch Supergirl, Katy Keene, or The Outpost on your Mac, PC, or Smart TV, we’ve got you covered.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch The CW for free?

Absolutely. The CW is a free service to anyone with access to it. With the location issue sorted, it won’t cost you a penny to watch anything you want from its vast catalogue.
