CNN+, CNN’s overhyped pay-to-watch streaming service, is ending itself even quicker than previously announced.
“You know things are broken on the corporate side of things when even the execution gets moved up. CNN+ will cease streaming on April 28, according to an email sent do subscribers. That’s two days sooner than was previously announced.“
The self-immolation date for the streamer had been announced as April 30th, but apparently Discovery, like most people, just didn’t see a reason to let it keep living – or because everyone’s subscriptions were about to renew and that would cause another box of headaches for the several-hundred-million dollar failure that CNN+ proved to be.
CNN+ at least has the courtesy to issue a full refund to the few that gave it a shot, but it may take a while to get your $3-$6 bucks back in April, according to a statement.
“CNN+ streaming will come to an end on April 28, 2022. If you purchased your subscription directly from us, we will be providing a full refund for your subscription fee back to your original CNN+ payment method by May 28, 2022. If you purchased your subscription via a third party, such as Apple, Google, Roku, or Amazon, that third party will process a full refund of your subscription fee in accordance with their respective refund policies and timelines. You can confirm the details of those refunds directly with the applicable third-party app store provider.”
For those of you unlucky enough to have given CNN+ a shot, hey, at least you got what you paid for.
