{Revision: It’s dead} CNN debuts today but won’t be accessible on Google TV or Android TV

On top of the major news network, CNN is launching today as a premium streaming service with additional original content and other features. Sadly, CNN is releasing without a Google TV or Android TV app.

4/21 Update: CNN has ceased operations less than a month after its announcement. Chris Licht, the CEO of CNN, said today that the network will cease operations fully on April 30. CNBC had reported said on April 12 that only 10,000 people a day were using the service. Axios asserts that the service had only amassed about 150,00 users in total and that management were disappointed that the product even debuted as a result of the recent WarnerDiscovery merger. reported was the first to announce the shutdown.

The demise of CNN will go down as one of the most unsuccessful attempts at streaming history.

One of CNN’s key differentiating elements is live segments where viewers may submit questions and upvote other segments, which are regarded as an addition to the 24-hour news network. Exclusive reporting and original programs are also included. Although there is a $3/month lock-in discount at launch, CNN is available within the standard CNN app and costs $6/month.

We’re delighted to offer this competitive price on CNN’s top-notch journalism, premium storytelling, and Interview Club platform. There is nothing like CNN. There is currently no news or nonfiction streaming subscription service available, and only CNN is capable of developing and delivering a global news product with this level of customer value.

CNN is currently only available on Android smartphones and tablets, iOS/iPad OS, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV; it is not currently available on Google TV or Android TV. Roku does not have the app either.

Andrew Morse, the president of CNN, told aa6 that we needed to get on as many platforms as we could before the launch. Fortunately, there are plans to increase accessibility in the upcoming weeks.
