Is Warner Brothers’ Day After US TV Watching App A Sea Change, Or The Same Old Media?

With this one app, is Warner Bros showing that it can change with the times?

So far, you can buy and watch Gossip Girl, Big Bang Theory, or The Vampire Diaries episodes the day after they air in the US, as well as download them for offline watching, or purchase the whole season at once. The first episode of each show is free, and then will cost $2.99 for standard definition, or $3.99 per high definition episodes. The full season price looks to cost a bit more than iTunes, as well.

Is this Warner Brothers offering something new, or is this just another way to try and lock up your content in a separate walled garden? I’m not seeing much of an advantage to using this app over iTunes, aside from watching the first episode for free. What do you think?

App Features Include:
• Offline playback: Download episodes directly to your device to playback at anytime
• Steaming playback: Stream an episode instantly over Wi-Fi
• Multiple languages: Watch the episodes in your language of choice
• Real-time news: Live Twitter and Facebook updates
• Explore WB catalog: Browse other app editions created by Warner Bros.
• Localized audio dubs and dynamic subtitles are available in certain languages.

CW App Arrives on iOS

The CW is the latest network to fully embrace the mobile space as they have announced the launch of their new app on iOS. Now fans can watch shows like The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, Hart of Dixie, 90210, America’s Next Top Model, and more whenever they want. The CW is promising that their full episodes of their entire prime time slate of shows will be available, so fans can easily catch up on shows they missed or just relive favorite episodes.

The app is also packed with extra goodies including interviews, a peek behind the scenes of your favorite shows, exclusive previews, and other content. You can also set reminders for shows you want to watch and dreamily gaze at photos of the cast from various CW programming.

This is a great option for those who can’t get enough CW or maybe folks who don’t watch much TV but still want to check this programming out. Why pay for TV when you can watch it for free and it’s officially sanctioned by the network?
