CNN International Asia Pacific is the Asia-Pacific edition of the CNN International pay-TV cable network. The feed originates from Hong Kong.

CNN International began transmissions in August 1989.

From 1989 until 2005, this edition included exclusive programmes to the Asia-Pacific region such as Asia This Day, CNN Morning News (Asian edition), News Biz Today and Asia News. Since mid-2003, News Biz Today and Asia News (which were eventually renamed into CNN News and Asia Now and CNN India respectively) were simulcast on the other editions of CNN International. In addition, from 1990 to 2005, to differentiate it from the other feeds, the network logo on the lower-right hand of the screen had a static globe with the Asian continent facing the audiences.

Today, the differences between this edition and the other editions are minimal and are now limited to advertising and weather updates.

CNN has reported that their broadcast agreement in mainland China includes an arrangement that their signal must pass through a Chinese-controlled satellite. In this way, Chinese authorities have been able to black out CNN segments at will.
