    HULU lost the ability to Stream Current CW Shows which I was using last year with my No Commercial Subscription to Hulu. Netflix will get the CW Shows immediately after the season ends. I may just wait if CW does not offer a No Commercial Option.

    I was thinking that as well. "The catch" will probably be the service will be sponsored by commercials. Which, in my opinion, depending on what is offered, I won't mind.

    For example, if I can get a live stream from my local affiliate, day-and-date VOD, full seasons VOD as well as past seasons VOD I don't mind watching commercials. On the other hand, if the service is like what NBC offers then I sure won't be using it because NBC's ATV app offerings is pathetic. But this is all my opinion and what I'm willing to accept. As I see from some posters they won't accept any commercials, ever.

    I think you got "everywhere" meaning platforms, for locations. If you look at the ad it is listing all the platforms this service is supported.

    I suppose it's all down to interpretation, but they did say 'Available Everywhere' probably assuming that nobody outside of the US likes The CW Facebook page.

    Funny thing is, the first thing that jumps out at me to explain the "everywhere" comment is all the platform icons.

    Yeah, that graphic is a little ambiguous. Of course, I don't know why anyone would think this service would be available world-wide. That is just wishful thinking.

    You will always get some that will assume it would indeed be worldwide.
    Outside of the US wishful thinking is all anyone has when us comes to AppleTV as unless you buy anything from iTunes it's pretty much just a device to watch Netflix on.
