Cable News Network-Indian Broadcasting Network (CNN-IBN) is an English-language Indian TV news channel. The network is a partnership between Global Broadcast News (GBN) and Turner International (Turner) in India (a subsidiary of Time Warner). Rajdeep Sardesai is the Editor-in-Chief of the network. The Indian company GBN runs the channel completely but uses the CNN brand name, in return gave 26% stake to Time Warner.

The network broadcasts 24-hour a day. The network models most of its programming on that of CNN in the United States, with current-event talk programs mixed with news reports. The flagship evening program, India at 9, is usually broadcast daily on CNN Pipeline, although it is not simulcast (except during breaking news events, such as the 11 July 2006 Mumbai train bombings and the 2008 Mumbai attacks). It is one of the first news channels in India to use the concept of "citizen journalist," whereby any person can send in a report that is aired in a separate section.

CNN-IBN expanded the Citizen Journalism Segment by including Mobile Citizen Journalism. Indian Citizens are now able to take photos from mobile phones which can be send via MMS to the news desk of CNN-IBN.
