CNN announced today that it is joining the PlutoTV platform, further expanding the availability of CNN content on streaming platforms. The CNN channel on PlutoTV will feature a curated playlist of short-form digital content from CNN’s esteemed anchors and story-tellers.

The channel will showcase CNN’s award-winning original feature content to viewers, with programming focused on lifestyle and culture, climate change, and the environment, along with original investigations and revealing interviews.

Commenting on the new partnership, Amy Kuessner, senior VP of content partnerships at Pluto TV, said: “At a time when news cycles are never-ending, in a world that is constantly evolving, CNN’s coveted daily reporting and in-depth features are perfect for our audience to be informed, with immediacy, accuracy and ease.”

Founded in 2013, ad-supported Pluto TV was acquired by Viacom in earlier this year for $340m. The platform already has more than 100 channels and thousands of on-demand movies, but Viacom has expressed its intention to expand the platform’s offering with more than a dozen new channels, some based on Viacom brands.
