Some people like to watch shows week to week, mostly to build the suspense and keep the interest there. There are also those people who like to build up a season of a show either on their DVR or Hulu so they can binge watch them all at once, and then there are those who like go to the store and buy the DVD’s and use that to catch up. In the current line up of shows, there is a vast amount of comic book related shows and most of them can be found on The CW. With the inclusion of Supergirl The CW has mostly every day of the week covered with The Flash, iZombie, Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow with more shows starting soon, and in a recent announcement with Netflix it was stated that you will soon be able to binge the whole season a week after the season finale.

For example, 8 days after the last episode of The Flash you can find the whole season on Netflix. If you can wait a whole season, including the hiatus, then you won’t have to pay for a commercial free Hulu subscription anymore. Please see the following press release for the official statement
