CBS on Monday launched its 24-hour streaming sports news service, CBS Sports HQ.

The free, ad-supported service is a collaboration between CBS Sports and CBS Interactive and features news, highlights and analysis.

CBS said it replicates the model of its 24-hour streaming news service CBSN. CBS also has its CBS All Access and Showtime standalone streaming offerings, which together have amassed about 5 million subscribers.

“CBS SPORTS HQ is another key step in the evolution of the CBS Corporation,” Leslie Moonves, chairman and CEO of CBS, said in a statement. “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.”

The company said CBS Sports HQ utilizes the resources of CBS Sports,, 247Sports, SportsLine, CBS Sports Fantasy and MaxPreps for live reporting, post-game analysis, and in-depth stats, among others. Subscribers have access to DVR-like functionality, enabling them to watch earlier segments and rewind in live programming.

“CBS SPORTS HQ is for fans who want more coverage of the game. Sports fans can now get the news and highlights they want in a true, round-the-clock sportscast on any device, where and when they want,” Jim Lanzone, CEO, of CBS Interactive and Chief Digital Officer of CBS Corporation, commented. “As with CBSN, which continues to attract a growing audience of digital consumers, we also think there’s a tremendous advantage in being first to market with this type of service in a crown jewel category.”

As of now, CBS Sports HQ is accessible on; the CBS Sports app for 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.

In a fourth quarter earnings call Moonves also said that coming this fall CBS will debut an Entertainment Tonight-branded entertainment news streaming service.
