CNN for Windows Phone updated to 2.0 with live TV support, updated design

CNN for Windows Phone has grabbed an update today. You can now hit up the Windows Phone store where you'll be presented with version 2.0 of the app. Along with the step-up in versions, the app brings some new features in the form of an updated design, email and social sharing, and the ability to watch CNN live TV anywhere as long as you are signed in with your TV provider login.

This is a pretty major update for the news app, and you can find the detailed change log, along with some screenshots of the app in action below:

  • Watch CNN live TV anytime (with TV provider sign-in)
  • Updated design with access to additional content
  • Email and social sharing available
  • Minor bug fixes

In addition to the documented changes, we also discovered you can have the app say "this is CNN" upon launch — you know, just in case you forgot.
