CNN has launched their own official Roku channel called CNNgo. The channel includes on demand content as well as a live stream for those with a n authenticated live pay TV account (through cable or satellite).
While this isn’t an ideal solution for complete cord cutters it will be helpful for those who have cut down their bundles and want to enjoy CNN in another room via their streaming device and not another set top box rental.

CNN announced today the availability of CNNgo on Roku® players and Roku TV™ models, bringing CNN content to millions of Roku customers in the U.S. As part of the industry-wide TV Everywhere initiative, available in 86 million homes, CNNgo is expanding its footprint to customers of participating Pay-TV providers and bringing CNNgo to the Roku streaming platform.
The CNNgo channel includes live CNN U.S television and on-demand feature programs and clips for Pay-TV subscribers. These viewers can log in with their cable or satellite user name and password to access CNN’s streaming video, past and future show segments and related videos and photo galleries. In addition, all U.S. Roku customers will be able to access hundreds of video clips and collections through the CNNgo channel.
“With the release of CNNgo on Roku streaming devices, CNN is continuing to give viewers control over their news experience on the platform of their choice,” said Rajin Persaud, VP of Digital Video and TVE Products. “We’re excited to bring CNNgo’s industry-leading capabilities – like contextualizing live television and syncing video with complementary content in real time 24-7 – to Roku customers.”
