You can watch CNN Live in your Web browser

I'm watching CNN via Xfinity Comcast.

Had to perform a Silverlight upgrade to get it to work.

When I tried to watch live at CNN I got an error.

Here's a tweet I sent out with the error "NOT PROPER AUTHENTICATION":

Xfinity saw the tweet and helped out:

When I tried to watch on Xfinity, I got a message telling me to upgrade my Silverlight plug-in. CNN didn't have that message.

Thanks Marc.

Note: To watch online, you've got to be a cable subscriber and authenticate with your cable company account username and password.


  1. Is it possible to watch it if I'm not in the usa?

    1. I don't know. You need to be a subscriber to a cable company, so I'd guess probably not.
