CNN+ Launches on Roku Devices
When CNN+ launched in late March, the service was surprisingly not available on Roku devices despite the company being the most popular smart TV platform in the United States. Well, on Monday, it was announced that CNN+ has officially launched on Roku in the U.S.
Roku users are now able to download the CNN app through the Roku channel store, which will allow viewers to stream CNN+ and to access the live TV feeds of cable channels CNN, CNN International, and HLN with their pay-TV log-in information.
The CNN+ subscription service features eight to 12 live daily shows, new CNN+ Original Series, and over 1,000 hours of programming from the CNN Original Series and CNN Films teams. Additionally, the streamer’s Interview Club feature available on desktop, mobile, and tablets, houses a thriving community that enables subscribers to drive the conversation and be part of the story. The full schedule for this month can be found here.
CNN+ is available for purchase at $5.99 per month or $59.99 per year. Users can sign up for a 7-Day Free Trial via the Roku channel store. The streamer is also still offering its “Deal of a Lifetime” in which early adopters will be able to receive 50% off of the monthly subscription price for as long as their account remains active. That means that customers who sign up for CNN+ now will pay just $2.99.
What Other Devices Support CNN+?
CNN+ is available to stream on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Roku, Android TV, iPhone/iPad, Android Phone/Tablet, Mac, Windows, Sony Smart TV et VIZIO Smart TV.
CNN+ was a subscription streaming service that included 12 hours of live news and on-demand access to shows like “Parental Guidance with Anderson Cooper,” “5 Things with Kate Bolduan,” “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” and “Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy.” The service features journalists like Chris Wallace and Audie Cornish.
The service lasted less than a month. It debuted on March 29, 2022 and ended on April 28, 2022.
Some of the programs and personalities from the service went to HBO Max, some went to discovery+.
