Discovery+ Is Getting a CNN Originals Section

Following the dissolution of CNN+, the network's original series are moving to Discovery+ instead.
  • Three months after the dissolution of CNN+, CNN programming is moving to another streaming service: Discovery+.

    Warner Bros. Discovery is launching a CNN originals section on Discovery+, where they will host CNN series and documentary films, as well as original programs from HLN, which focuses mainly on true-crime content.

    "True crime, food and travel programming are among the most-watched genres for Discovery+ viewers, so these titles from CNN will fit right in with our best-in-class collection of unscripted content," said JB Perrette, president and CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery's streaming operations, in a statement. "We're excited to offer our subscribers access to a comprehensive offering of CNN Original Series available to stream with their existing subscription."

    In the new CNN originals sections, Discovery+ subscribers will be able to watch series such as Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown and Stanley Tucci's Searching for Italy, as well as shows like The History of Comedy. And some of the HLN titles that will be available include Death Row Stories and The Hunt With John Walsh. Going forward, some CNN and HLN original series will stream on Discovery+ after airing linearly on the cable networks.

    The CNN originals section will be made available on Discovery+ starting August 19.
