Not enough people wanted to pay for CNN Pipeline, the news network’s video service. Instead of killing it off, Pipeline will be integrated into CNN.

Fears at Resource Shelf regarding Pipeline can be put to rest. CNN has chosen to eliminate the subscription aspect of Pipeline, not the content.

CNN’s David Payne wrote at the CNN Behind The Scenes blog that Pipeline would change:

So, why are we changing to a new model and a new service? Couple of reasons. First, as popular as the service was, it became clear to us that reaching true scale was going to be impossible if the product remained a pay service.

Remember that our entire mission is about getting more news to more people on more platforms
