Hi everyone,

Thanks for reaching out to the Roku community!

Please be noted that CNN+ and the updated CNN channel are not available on the Roku Channel Store but we hope to have the channel in the future.
For more information, you'd want to contact any specific channel/service provider to inquire further about whether they offer their channel/service on the Roku platform in your region.

Let me know if you have any other questions, and have a good day!


Best regards,
Mary

That has nothing to do with Roku. It’s whenever CNN releases it to all platforms. It’s supposed to be released today. It’s not available as of yet on Roku or Android TV devices. But that’s none up to Roku. CNN needs to make their app or channel available on all platforms. When will it be released for Roku? Ask CNN

@BillandMagy

Thanks for the post.

Please be aware that there is a CNNgo channel available in the Roku Channel Store. Have you tried using that channel to see if that fits what you are looking for?

Please keep us posted what you find out.


Thanks,
Danny

Roku does not create channels for 3rd party providers. CNN provides the current CNNGo channel, and will have to provide one for their new streaming service as well. CNN is where you have to ask.

You'd think that because Roku controls a larger market share, CNN would want to get CNN+ on Roku. Apparently Andrew Morse, CNN Executive Vice President and head of CNN+, said that they are hoping to launch on Apple and Roku, but the company is “coming down to the wire to get on as many platforms we can.” I guess they started at the bottom and added Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV first.
