CNN+ Streaming Service to Shut Down at End of Month

The New York Times:

Warner Bros. Discovery has decided to shut down CNN+, the ballyhooed streaming service that had been intended to bring CNN into the digital future, just weeks after its splashy debut, according to two people familiar with its plans.

The service is set to cease operations on April 30, the sources said.

Chris Licht, the incoming president of CNN, called an all-hands meeting among CNN+ staffers for noon on Thursday to share the news.

Ignominious, to say the least. Even Quibi lasted eight months.
