Streaming services are the latest business opportunities that the entertainment industry can’t stop indulging in. And the recent example of this rising craze is CNN+.

Long-running channels and TVs exist, but today’s generation – millennials, Gen X, and whatever the most recent ones are called – mainly prefer mobile entertainment. Be it learning or entertainment, they want to have everything at their fingertips. And what was earlier available on mobile and personal computers (with the help of Internet) are now available in smart TVs. 

Streaming platforms like Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ etc., are getting preferred over TV channels en masse. The versatility in content coupled with personalized features like Ad-free streaming, language selection, and high-definition easily wins viewers. Today, there are over 100 streaming platforms, with millions of subscribers who are subscribed to more than one streaming service. Their continued love and support for these platforms are the reasons we are not seeing an end to the birth of new streaming services now and then – one of which is CNN+.

CNN+, or CNN Plus, is the most recent, popular addition of brands in the list of worldwide streaming services. As the name suggests, the application is owned by the same 24-hour running news channel CNN that you already know about. The parent company, however, is WarnerMedia.
