CNN, a major news network owned by WarnerMedia, has now launched its long awaited subscription streaming service, CNN+. The service – platformed within the CNN app – will not provide access to any of CNN’s traditional channels but will feature live, on-demand and interactive programming and over 1.000 hours of content from the CNN+ Original Series and CNN Films divisions.

Ten live daily shows will also debut on the service upon its launch, with eight to twelve hours of live news broadcast every day. Titles from CNN’s library that will feature includes seasons of shows such as Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy, This is Life with Lisa Ling and United Shades of America.

CNN+ and the company’s traditional TV content (from its CNN, CNN International and HLN channels) will be offered on a single app. The streaming service will cost subscribers $6 per month or $60 per years. CNN is offering customers who sign up within the first four weeks 50% off the monthly plan for life.

Andrew Morse, CNN EVP, Chief Digital Officer and Head of CNN+, said: “We are thrilled to be able to offer CNN+ to customers on each of these platforms on launch day. Getting this product into the hands of our customers is an important milestone for CNN, and our partners will be critical to the future success of this product.”

Tony Goncalves, EVP and Chief Revenue Officer, WarnerMedia, said: “The launch of CNN+ marks another key moment in WarnerMedia’s evolution and CNN’s storied history. We’re so pleased to work with our partners to provide consumers access to all that CNN+ has to offer wherever they choose.”
