The Cable News Network or CNN is a trusted news provider in multiple countries. You can access the CNN TV channels in more than 200 countries. CNN also has an app in which you can access any news article on your smartphone and other smart devices. For Android TV, CNN has its own dedicated app called CNNgo. You can install the CNNgo app on your Android TV from the Google Play Store to get all the breaking news.

CNN also offered CNN+, a subscription-based app with original programs. But, within a month of its launch, the CNN+ services were shut down. Now, with the CNN app, you can watch all the world news, live radio stations, original series, and more.
