CNN has announced a new streaming service called CNN+. Launching early next year, the subscription offering will complement the cable news giant’s existing television networks with original, live, on demand, and interactive programming. In addition to 8 to 12 hours of this live, daily programming, CNN+ will debut with an extensive library of programing that includes past seasons of CNN’s original series and films, such as Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy, This is Life with Lisa Ling, and United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell. CNN+ will be integrated into the current CNN app, allowing both CNN+ and traditional pay TV subscribers to access their content from a single place. The cost of CNN+ is reportedly still being decided.

“For 41-years, global audiences have turned to CNN as an essential source of news and information, which is rooted in our deep commitment to quality journalism,” said Andrew Morse, CNN Worldwide Chief Digital Officer. “CNN+ will be built on a foundation of world class reporting and storytelling and a commitment to meet our audiences wherever they are.”

  1. I heard about this this morning. Basically, it’s because their contracts with cable providers prevent them from streaming their existing content, so to work around that, they just created a new streaming service.

    Not terribly interesting in it myself, but the part about the contractual obligations leading to this was semi-interesting – because otherwise they could just post their existing content online.
