CNN is sometimes stated to as CNN/U.S. (or CNN Domestic) to differentiate the U.S. channel from its international sister network, CNN International. As of August 2010, CNN is accessible in over 100 million U.S. households. Broadcast coverage of the U.S. channel spreads to over 890,000 American hotel rooms, as well as carriage on subscription providers throughout Canada. As of July 2015, CNN is accessible to about 96,374,000 pay-television households (82.8% of households with at least one television set) in the United States. Internationally, CNN programming airs through CNN International, which can be perceived by viewers in over 212 countries and territories. Since its debut, CNN has extended its reach to a number of cable and satellite television providers, several websites, and specialized closed-circuit channels (such as CNN Airport). The company has 42 bureaus (11 domestic, 31 international), more than 900 affiliated local stations (which also take news and features content via the video newswire service CNN New source), and several regional and foreign-language networks around the world. The channel’s success completed a bona-fide mogul of founder Ted Turner and set the stage for corporation Time Warner’s eventual acquisition of the Turner Broadcasting System in 1996. The first Persian Gulf War in 1991 was a watershed incident for CNN that shot the channel past the “Big Three” American networks for the first time in its history, largely due to an extraordinary, historical scoop: CNN was the only news channel with the capability to communicate from inside Iraq during the initial hours of the Coalition bombing campaign, with live reports from the al-Rashid Hotel in Baghdad by reporters Bernard Shaw, John Holliman. CNN was the first cable news channel to breakdown the news of the September 11 attacks .Anchor Carol Lin was on the air to send the first public report of the event. She broke into a commercial at 8:49 a.m.
