Technically, if CW decide to be real pricks, they can blacklist CV's IP range, making it impossible to watch anything off their website when connected via OOL.
This was attempted by Hulu during the Fox dispute. It lasted a very short period of time when investor Comcast chimed in. The last thing you want is a fight with the 900 lb gorilla in the cable television industry. It also brings up a whole debate about net neutrality issue and can have the government on Tribune's tush faster than you can spell FCC.
