How to Watch CNN Plus on Firestick and Fire TV

cnn plus on firestick

CNN’s Streaming Platform CNN Plus has officially launched for use on Firestick and Fire TV devices.

CNN+ does not come in a standalone app, however, users must access it via the Official CNN App.

Currently, users can access this service only on Firestick, Fire TV, and Apple TV.

Roku and Google have yet to reach a deal with the subscription service which means users of these devices cannot use it just yet.

The Amazon Firestick is the most popular media device available today due to its low price point and jailbreaking abilities.

In the guide below, we will show you how to watch CNN+ on a Fire TV Stick 4K Max.

However, this will work for any variation of Firestick including Fire TV Stick Lite and Fire TV Cube.

  1. Yes the new app is NOT WORKING AT ALL!! Did all the same stuff as others signed in with my cable provider but when I click on the cnn live icon loads for a second then goes black

    I have the same issue as Bobbi Bowman. I have the app and did my login. It shows the program I was watching on CNN+ on my computer. But whatever I click on (any program), the TV goes black and never cones back from that. I really only want CNN+ on my TV. My husband and I are 73 and won’t watch a TV program on our phone or computer. Please respond.

  3. I’ve tried it on my Fire TV a few times and can’t it to work right. I got the app and did my login and it even shows what I was in progress of watching…but whatever I click on (like resume) or some other show they have, the tv goes to black and never comes back from that. I’ve tried to play various shows with same result.
