CNN.com switching to free video
In part of a growing trend, MediaDailyNews reports that CNN will soon offer free video on its website, abandoning their subscription service in place since March 2002 that cost users $4.95 a month. In addition, CNN.com will be producing specialized two-minute newscasts every hour called "Now in the News." The new service will launch June 20th and be ad-supported, although CNN does plan to launch a separate subscription service in the fall that will give users access to multiple live video streams and CNN's video archives, but a price for that hasn't been set yet.
