It looks like CNN may soon release a Fire TV app with a live stream of their news coverage. Reddit user 08830 noticed that CNN’s device activation page currently has the option to activate apps on the Fire TV, even though no such app exists. The page says “get access to all of CNN’s live and original programming,” so it looks like Fire TV devices will be getting a version of the news outlets CNNgo app, which launched on Roku last December and on Apple TV a couple months ago. Both Roku and Apple TV apps require a cable subscription to access live and on-demand content, so it’s very likely the same will be true if and when the app arrives on the Fire TV.
