CNN+ is reaching out to those who subscribed to the service, notifying them that the service will be shutting down today. Subscribers will receive a full refund for their subscription fee.

The email to subscribers says:

thank you for streaming with us

CNN+ streaming will come to an end on April 28, 2022. If you purchased your subscription directly from us, we will be providing a full refund for your subscription fee back to your original CNN+ payment method by May 28, 2022. If you purchased your subscription via a third party, such as Apple, Google, Roku, or Amazon, that third party will process a full refund of your subscription fee in accordance with their respective refund policies and timelines. You can confirm the details of those refunds directly with the applicable third-party app store provider. 

You can continue to stay connected to our world with news coverage and originals on our other CNN channels and CNN Digital properties. We hope to see you there. 

CNN+ was given an end date of April 30 in an announcement from Warner Bros. Discovery leadership last week. “This decision is in line with WBD’s broader direct-to-consumer strategy,” said incoming CNN CEO Chris Licht in a statement. “In a complex streaming market, consumers want simplicity and an all-in service, which provides a better experience and more value than stand-alone offerings.” Zaslav has been open in the recent past about his desire to combine all of the company’s streaming-video assets, which also include Discovery+ and HBO Max, under a single umbrella.
