DIRECTV NOW Adds The CW to Its On-Demand Library

AT&T confirms there’s good news for DIRECTV NOW subscribers—shows from The CW network are now available for on-demand streaming.

Some notable shows hitting DIRECTV NOW on demand include Supergirl, The Flash, and The Arrow. Granted, there are regional restrictions to The CW live streams, so many fans still can’t stream their favorite CW shows live with DIRECTV NOW. However, they will be able to catch up shortly after the show airs with on-demand access.

DIRECTV NOW offers more than 25,000 on-demand shows and movies. It’s a good strategy to offset the regional restrictions that prevent users from streaming live episodes, but cable cutters can agree that ideally livestreaming will eventually replace on-demand streaming. All streaming services are aggressively adding more and more channels, so hopefully there will be more opportunities for cord-cutters to stream shows live.

How do you feel about watching on-demand content versus livestreams? Let us know in the comments below. And as always, follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more news, tips, and reviews to help you on your cord-cutting journey.
