HLN (Headline News) is an American basic cable news channel owned by CNN. Originally branded as CNN2, and later CNN Headline News, the channel was originally meant to broadcast standardized, regularly updated segments at 30-minute intervals 24 hours a day, briefly covering various areas of interest. In 2014, the network’s programming was reorganized with an emphasis on social media. This practice was dropped by 2016 in favor of traditional news broadcasts, with part of its lineup dedicated to true crime shows drawn mainly from the library of defunct sister network Court TV, as well as new original programs within the genre.
As of July 2015, HLN is available to approximately 97 million American households (83.4% of households with at least one television set) in the United States making it the most distributed American subscription network. Since the mid-2000s, HLN has been available internationally on pay television providers in parts of Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, the Middle East, North Africa, and Canada.
The channel was launched at midnight Eastern Time on January 1, 1982, as CNN2. The channel’s launch was simulcast nationwide on sister networks CNN and Superstation WTBS (now simply TBS), starting at 11:45 p.m. on December 31, 1981, as a preview for cable providers that had not yet reached agreements to carry CNN2.
