According to reports, the cable channel Max, formerly known as HBO Max, will begin airing live programming from CNN, a left-leaning news channel owned by Warner Bros Discovery Inc.
In March 2022, CNN introduced CNN+, a streaming service with content from people including former Fox News host Chris Wallace, NPR’s Audie Cornish, and CNN news reporter Jake Tapper. However, the experiment was only successful for a few weeks because no viewers showed up.
As a result, Warner Bros is considering trying another platform, according to Bloomberg News, which cited “people familiar with the matter.” But the relocation might not be as simple as it seems.
“Putting news on Max in the US could be complicated,” Bloomberg reported. “Pay-TV providers like Comcast Corp. and DirecTV typically pay for the right to offer cable channels to their subscribers and are sensitive about efforts by media companies to offer the same programming online.”
Bloomberg cited sources as saying that CNN’s top executives are searching for ways to transmit live shows within the United States. The network currently does this in Europe and other foreign countries.
Ratings for CNN have plummeted. In comparison to a year ago, the network’s primetime ratings dropped significantly by 25% last month. According to Nielsen, the channel only averaged 494,000 views during primetime in May, the New York Post reported.
Given that CNN is available in 80 million U.S. households, as stated in CNN’s datasheet, the figure is astounding. In other words, the network is only capturing slightly more than 0.5% of its potential audience.
That CNN’s streaming service vanished so swiftly is concerning given that an increasing number of Americans, particularly young ones, are cutting the cable cord. Last week, The Hollywood Reporter published this article with the unsettling heading: “Cord-Cutting to Reduce Pay TV to Just 38 Percent of U.S. Households by 2027, PwC Forecasts.”
“Global TV subscription revenue will fall to $173.6 billion in 2027, from nearly $200 billion just a decade earlier, declining at a 0.9 percent compound annual rate between 2022 and 2027,” the piece said. “And the number of U.S. pay TV homes will further drop to 49.9 million homes in 2027 amid continued cord-cutting, reducing pay TV’s presence to just 38 percent of U.S. households.”
CNN thus seems doomed. Because cable companies pay to air the network, even though few people are watching, it has been around this long. CNN might swiftly vanish if forced to rely solely on its own abilities, just as its streaming service did within weeks.
“What’s more, CNN faces a tougher environment for capturing advertising dollars,” Variety reports. “CNN is projected to see 2023 ad revenue fall about 5%, to $562.6 million, according to Kagan, a market-research unit of S&P Global Intelligence, and the network has suffered from noticeable declines in viewership in recent months.”
So prepare yourself for life without CNN. Won’t that be wonderful?
Let me know what you think!
Email me your comments and thoughts HERE!
So, is there ANYTHING American-made anymore?
The answer to that question is most definitely YES!
And it’s why I’m so passionate about my new mission.
I NEVER leave you with just the problem.
You know I’ve got the solution!
In fact, this is EXACTLY why I started my new mission close to four years ago.
The new mission is simply this: to help build out the Parallel-Economy.
Because here’s what I realized…
You THINK you have a choice between all these companies listed below in the circle, but what most people don’t realize is they’re all owned by only 11 companies.
Will probably be even less than that in the future when these merge even further.
It’s an ILLUSION of choice.
The same goes for all your media…
It’s just an ILLUSION of different choices, but owned by these 6 companies:
Now back to my Mission and my solution.
There has been a need for a Parallel-Economy and it would take time to build it but it is here finally.
They’ve been in business for 37 years and they’re a VERY pro-American, pro-Liberty, pro-Conservative values company!
They’re an American-based, Made-In-America, warehoused-in-America, shipped-from-America company!
In fact, they’re the last private, family-owned, pro-American consumer goods company left in America NOT owned by those 11 companies I showed you above.
Oh, and what if I told you the products are BETTER and often CHEAPER than what you get from those 11 companies above?
Yes, for real.
Once I learned all of that, I knew I no longer had to build this from the ground up by myself, I simply needed to partner with this awesome company to help them get the word out.
So on top of being the last Family-owned major consumer goods manufacturer not part of the Big-11, comparable or often lower prices, supporting American jobs and families, but here’s the best part.
That means no Red Dye 40 or fluoride in the toothpaste or chemicals in the cleaning products, or Deet in the mosquito repellant.
Oh, and Black Angus beef, pasture-raised on hundreds of thousands of acres.
Free roaming with plenty of open-air between all the cattle.
No hormones and no antibiotics.
Oh, and it’s CHEAPER than Omaha Steaks!
But that’s a whole other topic!
Sound good to anyone else?
The reason you’ve never heard of them is because it’s Invite Only.
I can get you in, but you can’t just go sign up.
They only want people on the same mission to join and they’re happy to say “no” to the Far-Left Libs!
They’ve been doing it for 37 years and it’s been working great.
No call centers from India.
Just real, friendly, helpful, and NICE Americans helping Americans!
Wow, like going back in a time machine.
So it is Invite only…and good thing you know someone that has the invites….(me!).
If you’d like to find out more and get a FREE personal invite, just go here and I will get the info out to you!
It’s the real deal, and because they don’t raise the Black Angus as the big companies do, they may have the SHUT OFF invites if they grow too fast.
So if you want in, let me know soon.
There’s only one pro-American, American-made and manufactured, chemical-free, toxin-free, hormone-free, company left….and I’m teaming up with them to FIGHT BACK!
Who’s with me?
