CNN Debuts 24/7 Streaming Video Service

Jul 19, 2011

CNN is launching a 24/7 streaming video service that will give subscribers access to feeds of CNN's two channels, CNN and Headline News (HLN) on any desktop and iOS-based mobile platforms. The service will feature live feeds from both channels, as well as an archive of on-demand content and series, and special topic-specific live feeds for breaking news and major events.

To access to service, users who already subscribe to CNN through a satellite or cable provider can access CNN's website or download the CNN video apps for iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Users must then authenticate for the service through a login provided by their phone, cable, or satellite provider. Video content is available in HD and can also be scaled as needed to suit individual devices and connection speeds.
