CNN+, the much-anticipated streaming subscription service from CNN, debuted today in the United States with three types of content: live, on-demand and interactive programming, including a whole new way to engage with CNN’s world class journalism and storytelling.
Subscribers can easily access CNN+ today on desktop and a range of supported smartphones, tablets and streaming devices, includingAmazon Fire TV, Android phones and tablets and Apple devices (via the App Store on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD). On these platforms, users can download the CNN app, which will contain both the CNN+ subscription service and access to the existing TV everywhere experience for pay TV subscribers, including the live TV feeds of CNN, CNN International and HLN as well as a robust on-demand offering. Additional device support for CNN+ will be available in the coming months.
Available for purchase at $5.99 per month or $59.99 per year, early subscribers that sign up within the first four weeks directly will have access to the “Deal of a Lifetime,” or 50% off the monthly plan – for life – as long as they remain subscribers.
At launch, 8-12 live daily shows will debut, in addition to the first episode of a slate of weekly programming, new CNN+ Original Series, and a library of more than 1,000 hours of award-winning programming from the CNN Original Series and CNN Films teams. Additionally, the Interview Club platform is now available as a thriving community that will allow subscribers to drive the conversation and be part of the story.
The product was announced in July 2021 as set to debut in Q1 of 2022. Additional CNN+ shows, talent, content offerings and business updates for 2022 and beyond will be released in the days, weeks, months and years to come. BCS Bureau
