CNN Introduces New Alexa Skill

CNN launched a new Alexa skill yesterday that gives users access to the latest news and stories produced by the network. Users can access any CNN broadcast as soon as five minutes after it airs. The skill will also let users ask about particular topics and give the latest news straight from CNN anchors like Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper. This is a smart move by CNN because the network will not have to create any new content for the skill. It will use the same content that can already be found on its CNNGo application. It is also claiming to be the “first publisher to deliver topic-based TV coverage” for Amazon Alexa products. Will others follow? LINK
