CNN to Move Hit Shows to Its New App in Bet on Star Power

  • News channel eyes $5.99 price and March launch date for CNN+
  • Network plans to pull shows from HBO Max to put on service

CNN plans to pull its original series off HBO Max and put the programming on its own streaming service as the cable news channel prepares to launch CNN+ next year.

The programs that will likely move include popular food shows starring Anthony Bourdain and Stanley Tucci and other CNN original series and documentaries, according to a person familiar with the matter. CNN no longer plans to produce shows for HBO Max, which is owned by the same parent company, AT&T Inc.’s WarnerMedia.
