CNN and HLN’s 24-hour television networks will be streamed live on CNN.com, the CNN App for iPad and the CNN App for iPhone and iPod touch beginning today. CNN Worldwide will stream its linear TV channels online and on mobile devices to consumers who subscribe to a multi-channel video service.
Simultaneous to this launch, CNN.com has debuted its new video experience, which seamlessly integrates live network TV into a larger and higher-quality video player, capable of delivering HD quality.
CNN and HLN online and mobile streaming is currently available to approximately 50 million households with subscribers to participating pay TV providers, including: AT&T, Comcast, Cox, DISH Network, Suddenlink and Verizon.
"A principle goal for CNN is to make more of our content available to more people on more platforms, and CNN’s participation in the TV Everywhere initiative is another step forward in that effort," said Jim Walton, president of CNN Worldwide, in a statement.??
To access CNN and HLN online, users can go to www.cnn.com/video, click on the "Live" tab and log-in through their cable, satellite or telco provider with a username and password.?? For mobile devices, a user can download the CNN App for iPad or the CNN App for iPhone and iPod touch (or update their app to version 1.2 for iPhone, 1.1 for iPad), and authenticate in the same way.??
CNN.com’s new video experience offers a cinematic player that optimizes the video quality for a user based on their Internet connection, with the capability of delivering HD quality. Video can be "squeezed back" to allow a user to browse through curated CNN video collections and TV show clips without leaving the video experience.??
