CNN Log-In Wall


Posted on 18th July 2011 by cloudhostingguy in Cloud Hosting


For those of you that don’t know, CNN is now broadcasting 24 hours a day online and on mobile apps for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch LIVE. The live streams are available for both CNN proper and Headline News, but good luck finding them. They are definitely not front and center.

To watch LIVE CNN videos, you need to click on the “Live” tab. Now you will have to use the new “unlock to watch” feature by entering your info. Click on that and then it asks for your cable company user ID from Verizon, Cox, Comcast, and the like. If you are like me, you will probably have to dig that out. I think it’s pretty lame that they’d do that to all of us but I guess it shows what this world is coming too. The world is all going behind a pay-wall of information.

Hopefully they will see their rankings go down and switch back to the old way but I don’t see this happening in the near future.  I wonder how this will affect CNN’s cloud servers.  Think they’ll see less traffic coming to them?  What do you think?
