Apple Adds CNNGo Channel to Apple TV

Several sites, including MacRumors are reporting that CNNGo is making an appearance on the Apple TV. When I read the headlines I was ecstatic. The channel includes access to live news coverage and segments from the past 24 hours. When I cut the cable over three years ago one of the things I missed most was access to cable news channels like CNN. I’ve long said if I had an option to pay a reasonable monthly fee (a couple bucks a month) for a la carte access to CNN on the Apple TV I would.

Then I saw:

Much of the content within CNNGo requires authentication through a cable provider. Live television and full shows require authentication, but clips can be watched without a cable subscription.
