Want to get more out of your Discovery Plus subscription? Now, you can enjoy additional content with the new dedicated CNN Originals hub on Discovery+. It features over 800 episodes that you can find from three brands of the network such as CNN Films, CNN Original Series, and HLN Original Series.
CNN released its streaming service called CNN+ last March 29. However, only fewer than 10,000 people used the streaming service after its first two weeks. CNN+ continues to struggle in attracting viewers hence Warner Bros Discovery and CNN decided to end the operation after one month of its launch.
According to the veteran cable TV network company, subscribers will receive a prorated refund of their membership. CNN+ subscription is $5.99 per month.
Subscribers of CNN+ who want to continue streaming and binge-watching their favorite TV show episodes and programming can do so via the CNN Originals hub on Discovery+. Earlier this month, the streaming service integrated the CNN Originals catalogue to provide selected premium content from the defunct CNN Plus service. The dedicated content hub will have several titles from the CNN Original Series as its initial offering. There will be more content later from other CNN brands.
