What content can you see on CNN+?
CNN+ has a list of new shows, movies, and documentaries. It also includes on-demand access to much of CNN’s non-news content, including shows like Anthony Bourdain: parts unknown, Stanley Tucci: In Search of ItalyY United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell.
In addition to on-demand shows, movies, and documentaries, you can watch live programming on CNN+. Unlike other streaming services with only pre-produced and on-demand content, CNN+ offers around eight to twelve hours of live programming every day.
This live content is completely exclusive to the CNN+ service and is not broadcast on the CNN cable channel.
How is CNN+ different from CNN?
While CNN+ is a streaming service of CNN and offers similar content, the streaming service and the cable channel are completely separate. CNN’s regular live news programming is not available on CNN+, as CNN+ has its own unique live programming.
Live programming on CNN+ focuses more on deep dives into current affairs than repeating the same live news that is already on CNN.
If you want to stream the cable channel CNN, you can do so through live TV streaming services like YouTube TV and Hulu With Live TV.
How to watch CNN+
The main way to watch CNN+ will be the CNN+ website, which has a streaming video player. You’ll also be able to watch CNN+ through an app on your phone and various streaming devices.
What’s on CNN+?
CNN+ is a streaming service from CNN that provides news, information, and entertainment content. The content available on CNN+ is similar to the content broadcast by cable channel CNN.
There is some overlap, but CNN+ mostly has unique content and carries original live news content instead of CNN’s live news coverage. In addition to all-new content from new creators, the service also features many familiar faces from current CNN shows.
The CNN+ service is subscription based and is available whether you have a cable subscription or are a cord cutter. To stream from CNN+, all you need is a subscription, a high-speed Internet connection, and a device such as a computer, laptop, phone, or streaming device.
While CNN+ has a smaller library than services like HBO Max and Netflix, it’s more focused and includes content you can’t get anywhere else. It is primarily for viewers who enjoy CNN and want more.
The original content is deeper but is based on the topics typically covered by CNN programming. The service also includes on-demand access to programs originally broadcast on CNN.
The aspect that makes CNN+ unique from other streaming services is its focus on daily live programming. Unlike Netflix, which streams shows at the same time for binge-watching, or Disney+, which streams new shows every week, CNN+ offers new live programming every day, just like cable network CNN itself.
Additionally, the service will allow subscribers to participate in an interactive community and interact directly with many of the experts featured on CNN+ programming.
