CNN Launches on Apple TV

Wednesday, 25 Mar 2015 05:15 PM

Turner Broadcasting's CNN has made its Internet network service, CNNgo, available on Apple TV set-tops.

CNNgo -- which requires a subscription to a participating pay-TV partner -- provides access to the news cabler's live TV feed and on-demand shows. Those include CNN originals "Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown," "Finding Jesus," Mike Rowe's "Somebody's Gotta Do It," "Morgan Spurlock: Inside Man," "This Is Life" with Lisa Ling, "The Wonder List" with Bill Weir and Anderson Cooper's nightly news program, "AC 360?." As part of the industry-wide TV Everywhere initiative, CNNgo is now available in more than 86 million homes and to participating TV providers on Apple TV devices.

"CNNgo on Apple TV brings together our live CNN TV simulcast and deep library of original films, franchises and short-form video in a powerful, on-demand way unlike any product we've launched to date," CNN chief product officer Alex Wellen said.

CNNgo is the first Turner network to launch on Apple TV. Apple chopped the price of the Apple TV set-top by 30%, to $69, with a new unit rumored to be in the offing. Earlier this week, Apple added three new free channels to the device, to bring it to 50-plus channels: TED, Tastemade and Young Hollywood.

The additional channels, which bring Apple TV up to more than 50 channels, come after Apple inked an exclusive pact with HBO that makes Apple TV the device launch partner for the $15-per-month HBO Now over-the-top service slated to launch next month.

CNN Worldwide was the first U.S. news organization to stream its full CNN and HLN networks online and on Apple devices in real-time, including commercials. CNN's TV Everywhere option is available in over 86 million homes and with more than 320 distribution partners. In 2014, 13.2 million hours of CNN TV content were consumed via the TVE platform.
