At a price of nearly $100 million, CNN's new streaming service debuted today with a dozen brand-new live shows each day and a thousand hours of CNN shows and original films for a monthly subscription fee of $5.99 (or $2.99 for a limited time). CNN founder Ted Turner marked the launch by tweeting: "As @CNN embarks on an important new chapter in its history - I'm both proud and honored to be the first subscriber of their expanded content, #CNNPlus. Just when you think CNN covered all the bases, they innovate a new tool for keeping us informed. Well done!"
