CNN’s new streaming service CNN+ has officially launched as of March 29, offering subscribers a “completely distinct experience” with exclusive live news reporting, new original series and new interactive features. However, you won’t find it in the app store.
CNN+ is an added subscription-only feature you can access within the current CNN mobile app and the CNN app on Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV streaming devices. You can also view it using your web browser. Roku and Android TV are both missing from the list of compatible devices, but CNN says support for additional devices will be available in the coming months.
“We’re thrilled to offer CNN+’s world class journalism, premium storytelling and Interview Club platform at this attractive price,” said Andrew Morse, CNN EVP, Chief Digital Officer and Head of CNN+. “Nothing like CNN+ exists. There is no news and non-fiction streaming subscription offering available today, and only CNN can create and deliver a global news product with this kind of value to consumers.”
At launch, CNN+ is offering customers 50% off the subscription price for life, making cost just $2.99/month for as long as you subscribe. This offer runs until April 26, so if you’re thinking of signing up, now is the time. After the promotional discounted period, subscriptions cost $5.99/month or $59.99/year.
