I am unable to cast to my Chromecast from my CNN app. It worked until about a week ago, and now the cast button is missing. I’ve tried resetting my devices, reinstalling the app, and clearing the cache. It worked for years before that. Any ideas?
Ditto here. Looks like the advent of CNN+ caused the change to casting options. If you use the AirPlay (concentric circles on a triangle tip) you can get it to stream on AppleTV or VISIO with built-in AirPlay. But the reliability is nowhere nearly as good as it was with the Chromecast option. I can't find any CNN policy change that talks about this, so hopefully they will get around to including the Chromecast icon.
it's not just casting! I can't mirror to my tv using the app either?! It just spins so there are many issues with this new app, not to mention the cnn app is even offered on new Samsung tv's, they have slot to fix!
I reached out to CNN Support, here is what they said:
As of now, Chromecast is not supported by CNN+. Stay tuned as we expand our supported devices. You can visit this link for more updates and information https://help.cnn.com.

Luckily on my Android phone, I can go to settings..enable Bluetooth..then cast my screen onto my own TV. Unfortunately, although I can see CNN live, I forfeit my ability to minimize and do other things..thus locking me into the exclusive event. Until CNN upgrades the app..this is the status quo they have imposed on their viewers.
Thanks for posting. I appreciate you sharing the info here about the missing cast button for CNN+. Since the issue is isolated with CNN+, I'd suggest you reach out to them from time to time to check if there's an update regarding this so you can keep on the track if there are changes in their app's settings.
