CNN to rerun 9/11 coverage online

Free feed to mark anniversary

Security for virtualized datacentres

CNN has decided to mark the fifth anniversary of 9/11 by rerunning its news coverage of that day on its CNN Pipeline service, Yahoo! reports.

The blow-by-blow account, running from 8.30am until midnight, will be accompanied by another feed showing live coverage of memorial services.

CNN.com general manager David Payne explained: "Our users may choose to view the stream of coverage from Sept 11, 2001, or live coverage of memorial services at Ground Zero, or they may click through the numerous interactive elements on the site. They have the power to determine the best way for them to remember the anniversary."

To ensure viewers don't accidently access the archive material, "the replay feed will be covered with a notice instructing users to click only if they want to watch".

And, for one day only, CNN will offer its four Pipeline feeds for free. Subscribers normally pay $2.95 a month or $24.95 a year for the service. ®
