CNN+ (CNN Plus) was a Spanish 24-hour television news channel. Launched in 1999 as a joint venture by Sogecable and Turner Broadcasting, a unit of Time Warner that owns CNN, it went off the air at the end of 28 December 2010. The management announced that CNN+ would be closed on 31 December 2010.[1]

The slogan of CNN Plus was Está pasando, lo estás viendo (It's happening, you're watching it). By 2008, there were other 24-hour television channels — Intereconomía TV and TVE 24h — and CNN plus was no longer the audience leader in this type of general information.

On 18 December 2009, the channels of Sogecable, a PRISA business, merged into the Mediaset group, which already controlled Spain's Telecinco channel.

The station went off the air at 11:59 p.m. (Spanish time) on 28 December 2010, and was replaced with 24-hour coverage of the reality show Gran Hermano, the Spanish version of Big Brother owned by Mediaset.
