The Pipeline has Opened

cnn pipeline
After several rounds of beta testing and a few leaks in the wild, CNN’s new Pipeline product has officially launched. Traditional media have covered this a bit (see this story, free registration required), and the blogs have had a lot to say – almost all of it quite positive.

Most interesting to me were the overwhelmingly positive comments on the post. Users talk about the attractive price ($25/year or $0.99 daypass), access to CNN International in the off-hours, etc. Another commenter thinks out loud about the paid content model v. sponsorship, suggesting a sponsored model might make sense here; another applauds the lack of a playlist making decisions for the user about what to play next.
