CNN.com Launches CNN Pipeline Broadband Video News Service
December 05, 2005, CNN.com today launched CNN Pipeline, an on-demand broadband video service designed to revolutionize the way people view news online. CNN Pipeline offers an unrivaled news experience by putting users in control of multiple live video streams, CNN’s video archives and on-demand news clips from CNN’s unmatched newsgathering operation around the world.
CNN Pipeline is designed to meet the needs of consumers who want live, on-demand news they can select with a click of the mouse. This new service builds upon the foundation created with the advent of CNN.com, which since 1995, has stood as an innovator in online news.
“With CNN Pipeline, CNN.com stakes out entirely new territory for online news, placing the broadband consumer in the ultimate driver’s seat,” said Susan Grant, executive vice president of CNN News Services. “Today, the CNN.com user not only can read a story and view video on demand, but with CNN Pipeline, also can take control of daily news clips, several live streams of news and even video from CNN’s extensive archives. CNN Pipeline creates an added dimension to online news, offering an experience that is even more relevant, credible and catered specifically to the user’s needs.”
Currently available in 25 countries, CNN Pipeline includes a host of innovative features including an easy-to-use downloadable player and access to video content from the entire CNN News Group. Subscribers can also access CNN.com free video features such as an on-demand “Video” section that showcases the best and most popular content, a unique “Browse Video” tool and “Now in the News,” an hourly Web-exclusive news update.
“CNN Pipeline provides the ultimate news experience for all types of consumers,” said David Payne, senior vice president of CNN News Services and general manager of CNN.com. “Designed for people to ‘watch and work,’ CNN Pipeline gives consumers commercial-free choices and control. Easy to use and elegant in design, CNN Pipeline is to online news what the iPod is to digital music.”
Subscribers access CNN Pipeline by downloading an easy-to-use video player. A Web-based version of the premium service is also available from any Internet-enabled computer. Subscriptions for CNN Pipeline are available for $2.95 per month or $24.95 annually. Additionally, one-day passes may be purchased for 99 cents.
