Today, Discovery+ subscribers in the US can access more than 800 episodes of CNN content via a dedicated CNN Originals hub. The network’s three brands – CNN Original Series, CNN Films and HLN Original Series – offer viewers a selection of titles such as “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown”, “Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy”, “Real Life Nightmare”, among others. ‘Death Row Stories’, ‘Race for the Vaccine’.

Subscribers can access the hub in the Discovery+ app or on the web. Supported devices include Amazon Fire devices, iOS devices, Apple TVs, Samsung Smart TVs, VIZIO Smart TVs, Roku devices, Android TVs, and other Android devices.

According to the company, the hub will receive an initial offering of CNN Originals for viewers to stream, with select CNN Original Series and HLN Original Series added later. More titles will be announced in a few months.

The announcement was initially made earlier this month in anticipation of Warner Bros Discovery’s second quarter results. The news also comes five months after the CNN+ streaming service was quickly discontinued, most likely disappointing the 10,000 or more people who streamed the service during the month it existed.

Now CNN fans can stream the content on Discovery+ for $4.99 per month, along with a variety of other documentaries, home improvement, real crime, lifestyle and other content from networks Investigation Discovery, HGTV, TLC and Food Network.

CNN+ would only have CNN content for $5.99, so having the hub on Discovery+ is a much better value.

“True crime, food and travel programming are among the most watched genres for Discovery+ viewers, so these CNN titles fit right in with our best-in-class collection of unscripted content,” JB Perrette, President and CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery streaming, said in a statement in early August.

Other titles on the new hub include ‘1968: The Year That Changed America’, ‘American Dynasties: The Kennedys,’American style,” “The Bush Years: Family, Duty, Power,” “Chasing Life with Dr. Sanjay Gupta,” “Christiane Amanpour: Sex and Love Around the World,” “Crimes of the Century,” “Declassified: Untold Stories of American Spies” (Seasons 1-3), “Diana,” “First Dames,” “Nomad with Carlton McCoy,” “Reframed: Marilyn Monroe,” “The People v. The Klan,” “United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell” (Seasons 1-6), “Beyond Reasonable Doubt,” “The Dead Wives Club ‘, ‘The Killer Truth’ and many more.

There will also be select titles from the CNN Special Reports collection, such as “Assault on Democracy: The Roots of Trump’s Insurrection.”

With CNN+ gone, Warner Bros. Discovery will integrate CNN Originals into its streaming strategy, both with this new dedicated hub on Discovery+ and by adding titles to HBO Max. The original CNN “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?” premieres this fall on HBO Max.

On September 30, HBO Max will also get content from Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Network, such as the titles “Fixer Upper: Welcome Home,” “The Lost Kitchen,” and “Restoration Road with Clint Harp.”

In the second quarter of 2022, Warner Bros. Discovery that the total number of direct-to-consumer subscribers to HBO, HBO Max and Discovery+ was 92.1 million.
