CNNgo app arrives on the Amazon Fire TV with live streaming CNN news

CNN has released their CNNgo app on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The app’s pending arrival was revealed last month when CNN updated their activation website to include an option for the Fire TV prior to there being a Fire TV app available. The app features a live stream of the cable news channels 24/7 coverage, as well as full length on-demand episodes for many of the network’s shows. You will need to activate the app with a participating cable or satellite subscription before viewing either the live stream or full length on-demand content. What you don’t need to activate the app to view are the numerous shorter clips available through the app. Expect to see the occasional pre-roll ad here and there when viewing on-demand clips. The CNNgo app is compatible with all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models, new or old, and works with either Fire OS 3 or 5.

    I am on travel. Can someone verify whether live CNN international stream is also available (like on Apple TV)?
    CNNi is a real news channel. Not sure what CNN does.

  2. Berto Avalos says:

    No option for Comcast-Xfinity WHY? WHY?

  3. d3ad says:

    anyone knows if it comes with HLN like the standard cnngo? Roku’s cnngo only has cnn

  4. DJ1 says:

    App doesn’t seem to work (live tv) for me after authentication ? Anyone else have the issue.

  5. d3ad says:

    works for me using Directv login. It does have CNN international and HLN live streams.

  6. agraba says:

    It doesn’t work for me on Shaw. After successfully entering the auth code, it’s stuck on “Loading…” until I exit out.

  7. TechyChris says:

    Works great with Verizon Fios, it’s not readily apparent(look on the apps left info bar) but you do get 3 different Live HD CNN Channels: CNN, CNN World and CNN Headline News as well as VOD. A welcome addition to FTV!

  8. Sandy says:

    I installed it today and it will not load. Just a little red square going round and round. I activated it, launched it and no GO!

    • Sandra George says:

      I was having the same issue, deleted it from fire stick, reloaded, activated from Xfinity, works fine.

  9. Frank Pecorella says:

    Congo does not work on firetv when you try to activate you need a cable company to do so. You are posting wrong information

  10. Tom Barrister says:

    The app is just fine on FireTV, except that the arrows and enter button don’t work. In other words, it’s virtually useless.

    The CNNGO app does not work with Amazon Fire TV. When will this be fixed?

  12. Teri says:

    The CNNgo app does not work when you click on CNN Live on Firestick. CNN Live, HLN, and CNN International boxes have a picture of a padlock on them. When I click on the CNN Live box a window opens and request that I sign in with my TV Provider. I click on AT&T U-verse to activate it and another window opens that reads” “We’re sorry we cannot process your request at this time. This is ‘ALWAYS’ the message that I receive when I click on the AT&T U-verse provider box to activate the app. AT&T has assured me that it is not a problem on their end; it is CNN’s inability to activate their app.
