CBS launches CBS SPORTS HQ
February 26, 2018
CBS has launched CBS SPORTS HQ, a 24-hour streaming sports news network offering news, highlights and analysis, easily accessible for free on connected devices. The new digital network is a collaboration between CBS Sports and CBS Interactive and allows sports fans to watch full-day, live, anchored coverage featuring game breakdowns and the day’s top sports storylines.
CBS SPORTS HQ utilises the combined resources of CBS Sports, CBSSports.com, 247Sports, SportsLine, CBS Sports Fantasy and MaxPreps to deliver a robust sports network with live news and reporting, game previews, post-game analysis, must-see highlights, projections and in-depth statistical breakdowns. The digital network also will give viewers the flexibility to control what they watch, with DVR-like functionality that allows them to watch previous segments and jump back into live programming seamlessly.
“CBS SPORTS HQ is another key step in the evolution of the CBS Corporation,” said Leslie Moonves, Chairman and CEO, CBS Corporation. “From CBS All Access to Showtime OTT to CBSN, we are creating best-in-class direct-to-consumer streaming platforms that are positioning us to be leaders in the future of premium content distribution. Thanks to the collaboration of CBS Interactive and CBS Sports, I am confident that CBS SPORTS HQ will become our latest success story in that regard.”
At launch, CBS SPORTS HQ is available on CBSSports.com; the CBS Sports app for key connected TV devices including Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Roku; the CBS Sports mobile app for iOS and Android; CBSN; and the CBS All Access subscription service.
