    [FONT=&quot]CNN and HLN announced today that their 24-hour television networks are to be streamed live on the CNN App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, making CNN Worldwide the first news organisation to stream its linear television channels online and on mobile devices. Also today, CNN says that it is debuting its new video experience, which seamlessly integrates live network TV into a larger and higher-quality video player capable of HD video. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]In order to be able to watch the streaming broadcasts from CNN via CNN’s iPhone or iPad apps, you’ll have to be one of the 50 million households in the US with a subscription to a participating pay TV provider, such as AT&T, Comcast, Cox, DISH Network, Suddenlink and Verizon.

    This works very well! But as with anything I try new on my iPad, I can't hear it.:(

    This is very cool to see what I am watching on my TV at that same time! Well ~ the iPad is like a second or two behind.

    Try checking to see whether or not your iPod (Music) setting is on mute. Muting cuts out the sound on the CNN app. Hope this helps.

    In other words if you double click on the home button, slide all the way to the left on in landscape and make sure the volume isn't muted.
