CNN.com on Monday launched a free service that will send breaking news to subscribers' e-mail in-boxes. Called "Your E-mail Alerts," the service lets people pick news by subject and choose how frequently they receive the alerts. Subscribers may also receive selected alerts from other publications, such as CNNmoney.com and SI.com.
The new service builds on a number of premium services that CNN.com already offers. These premium services include CNN NewsPass, which streams video news reports to subscribers for a monthly fee. However, CNN NewsPass is offered to America Online members for no additional charge.
