CNN.com’s Live, On-Demand Video Goes Free on July 1

CNN Pressroom - Content Available on Subscription-based CNN Pipeline Moving to Free Service on CNN.com

CNN.com this summer will unveil significant enhancements, creating a fully integrated online news experience. As part of the site’s redesign, the live, streaming and archived video content accessible through the subscription-based CNN Pipeline service since December 2005 will be available for free at CNN.com starting on Sunday, July 1.

The goal of CNN.com’s latest evolution is to make it easier for online consumers to get more news in more ways than ever before. After nearly 18 months of offering CNN Pipeline through subscription, CNN.com will begin offering users free of charge even more of the great video they expect – live and on-demand. As with the current CNN Pipeline service, CNN.com will provide access to its video archives and up to four streams of live content but without the need to download a video player.

As the first Internet site dedicated to 24-hour news coverage, CNN.com attracts an average of more than 24 million unique users each month. Launched in 1995, CNN.com draws from the resources of CNN Worldwide to provide relevant, up-to-the minute news and information. CNN.com features the latest multimedia technologies, from video streaming and user-generated content to audio packages and searchable archives of news features and background information.

Will CNN enhance their international website as well? Currently, cnn.com International is crap.

I sure hope they do. I would have to agree that www.cnn.com/international stinks. I wonder what they're gonna do for people who still have time left on their Pipeline subscriptions?

The AJC article said "some" people will get prorated refunds or something like that. I'm a subscriber and paid for the year...
