For those who are keen on the subscription, you’ll be pleased to learn that CNN has since confirmed that CNN+ will be going live on the 29th of March, which is in the next couple of weeks.
According to Andrew Morse, CNN EVP, Chief Digital Officer and Head of CNN+, “March 29 will be an important day in the history of CNN and CNN+ will be a critical part of our future. I am so proud of the work our teams have done to ensure our world class journalism and storytelling comes to life on this new platform. We can’t wait for our subscribers to experience it.”
For those unfamiliar, CNN+ is basically an extension of CNN that might be included in some cable TV subscriptions already. Users who subscribe will be able to access live content from the channel, as well as access to other types of content like talk shows. The service is priced at $6 a month, or $60 a year, but those who subscribe within the first month will be able to get 50% off their subscription for life.
