CNN now streaming 24-hour live news to iPads and iPhones

CNN iPadTime Warner today launched a new 24-hour live streaming service for both its CNN and Headline News (HLN) programming. The live feeds can now be accessed through CNN.com and through its apps for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The effort makes CNN Worldwide the first news organization to offer continuous programming online and for mobile devices, according to a statement issued by the company.

To access the live feeds, users must current subscribers to a paid TV service. Participating companies include AT&T, Comcast, Cox, DISH Network, Suddenlink and Verizon. Time Warner Cable is curiously absent from the list.

“CNN is taking a significant step forward by offering live CNN and HLN TV to our audiences whether they are on their couches at home or have their toes in the sand on the beach,” said K.C. Estenson, general manager of CNN Digital. “The 10 million users who have downloaded CNN’s mobile apps and the tens of millions of people who get the latest news and information from CNN.com every day will soon be able to watch CNN TV on every device they have.”

For the moment, the live streaming is available through Web browsers at CNN’s website and for dedicated CNN apps for the iPad and iPhone. However, Time Warner says that it plans to offer the service for other mobile devices in the future. To access the live news feed from a Web browser users can access the “Live” section on CNN.com’s video page and then sign-in by providing details from their TV provider account. CNN’s iOS apps are available in Apple’s iTunes App Store.

While CNN may be the first 24-hour TV news stream offered for mobile devices, Time Warner has previously offered a “TV Anywhere” experience by way of its HBO Go service for subscribers of certain paid TV services.
