Not getting enough news in your day? With a 24/7 news cycle spinning around these days, there are plenty of options for learning about the goings-on in any locale. For those that can't get their CNN fix in enough ways, however, the company has announced that it will be the first news network to stream 24-hour coverage online and on mobile devices.
The new CNN.com will be showcasing constant streaming of CNN and HLN, as well as on-demand video and multi-tasking support. CNN and HLN's complete 24-hour television networks will also be streamed live on the CNN App for iPad and the CNN App for iPhone and iPod touch beginning today, July 18.
CNN Worldwide is the first news organization to stream its linear television channels online and on mobile devices to consumers who subscribe to a multi-channel video service. Simultaneous to this launch, CNN.com has debuted its new video experience, which seamlessly integrates live network TV into a larger and higher-quality video player, capable of delivering HD quality. CNN and HLN online and mobile streaming is currently available to approximately 50 million households of participating pay TV providers, including AT&T, Comcast, Cox, DISH Network, Suddenlink and Verizon.
To access CNN and HLN online, users can go to www.cnn.com/video
, click on the "Live" tab and log-in through their cable, satellite or telco provider with a username and password. For mobile devices, a user can download the CNN App for iPad or the CNN App for iPhone and iPod Touch (or update their app to version 1.2 for iPhone, 1.1 for iPad), and authenticate in the same way.
